BIO4GAS: A small capacity 4-chamber-biogas system for the efficient production of biogas from agricultural wastes
Implementation of an innovative and economic small capacity 4-chamber-biogas system in standardised design at the agricultural school Rotholz, Tyrol, and scientific studies to optimise biogas yield. Characterisation of process relevant micro-organisms is also planned.
The BIOCOOL project will explore the transfer of morphological principles from leaves of deciduous trees, with optimized thermal properties and efficiency of evaporation to the parametric design of form-optimized architectural ceramic surfaces for climate control of building envelopes. The study paves the way for an industrial research project.
Business GuideLines Inducing Social Sustainability (BLISS): a practical guidance based on the instrument 'social performance analysis', its adaptation and application in a pilot enterprise.
The project BONSEI! would like to support an energy efficient and socially acceptable densification of privately owned residential buildings in urban space and to develop a methodological basis for resource efficient urban areas. The results are used for the conception of an innovative service in order to provide a neutral consulting regarding private densification plans.
BTTAB - Broad-based testing of energy-efficient demonstration buildings with thermally activated building components
Buildings with thermal building component activation that have not yet been researched in as many federal states and application categories as possible will be monitored, which will include operating data as well as the experiences of those involved. The aim of this study is to take a general look at the various applications of the thermal building component activation technology and to evaluate and compare the pilot projects with the help of suitable evaluation criteria.
The project BED aimed to the development of new concepts for the operation and application of building automation systems in non residential buildings to reduce the maximal energy consumption and to ensure a stable and high-quality power supply.
Basic research on the load bearing capacity and high thermal insulation properties of foam glass granulate
The aim of the scientific investigations is to find the characteristic parameters of foam glass granulate applied as load transfer layer and thermal insulation, to provide the base for the application of a multi functional and economical insulation material at the interface between building and ground for buildings of the future.
Beacon of innovation gugler cross media, ecoeffective zero energy cross media enterprise featuring zero-emission, zero energy, zero waste
The aim of the flagship project is a new dimension of sustainability (cradle to cradle, ecoeffective zero energy enterprise) for business operation and building, which means zero emission, zero energy, zero waste. This will be shown on the basis of a beacon of innovation: Gugler GmbH, a modern sustainable media services enterprise (traditional print and new media) will extend their current building from about 2100 square meters and about 90 employees to about 5,000 square meters.
Compilation of guidelines and benchmarks for "best biogas practice" to ensure efficient biogas production. Constitution of an Austrian network including all partners in the biogas production cycle.
Collaborative R&D project to develop the next generation energy services with the interplay of various technologies: Virtual Reality (VR), machine learning, physical simulation and Internet of Things (IoT) platforms.
This project analyzed the integration of decentralized heat sources into domestic heat grids technically, but also economically.
BiBi-TGA, Potential for the ecological optimization of technical building equipment through the usage of biogenic materials
Assessment of the substitution potential of conventional components of technical building equipment by biogenic materials. The aim is to provide new data on the ecological improvement potential of the usage of biogenic resources in the technical building equipment in office buildings. The potentials are analyzed by means of LCA screenings and technical feasibility studies.
Bio bitumen - bitumen substitute based on renewable raw materials and resulting in energy efficient asphalt
Development of a binder for asphalt based on renewable raw materials. Studies to choose the ideal natural base product, regarding the aspect of utilization of remaining material and the elaboration of practical methods of synthesis were made.
Development of a Minimum quantity lubrication system employed in metal working industry using an oil-in-water emulsion based on renewable primary products.
The target of this project is the screening of the opportunities, resulting of the combination of treating Cellulosic bodies with supercritical carbon dioxide. In general, the change of the porous structure depending on the way of fiber drying and the opportunity to incorporate active compounds and the development of analytical methods to track them within Cellulosic bodies.
To support the bio-based substitution of fossil raw materials and products, the fossil material flows in Austria for the reference year 2015 were collected and analysed. Furthermore, a broad bio-based technology research was part of the present study.
A concept for a cooperative forest fuel supply chain network for two regions of Austria is developed in order to minimise total system costs while simultaneously increasing supply guarantee for the plants. With results from previous projects and import data a concept for whole Austria is developed.
BioShip - Potentials of Inland Waterways in Securing the Supply of the Austrian Bio-based Energy Industry
BioShip analyses the potentials to optimise and secure the supply chains of the austrian bio-energy plants (forest fuel, biofuel and biogas) with inland water navigation as an environmental friendly way of transport
BioSkin - Research potentials for biologically inspired energy efficient façade components and systems
The research study was targeting the identification of strategic research potentials in the field of biomimetics for innovative facade technologies of the future. With the identification of useful principles of biological role models and the transfer to bionic facade concepts, interdisciplinary R&D research activities are improved to enable the development of sustainable solutions for climate-adaptive energy-efficient facades systems of the future.
A “2050 scenario - plastics made from renewable resources (bio-based plastics)” has been developed. The hypothetical target of this scenario is for bio-based plastics to have a 100 % market share of product manufacturing in the EU. The scenario provides the basis for further national RTI activities and for recommendations for regulation.
