BIMSavesEnergy - BIM-based planning-methods for the assurance of energy-efficiency in the building process
The Building Information Model (BIM) brings about fundamental changes in the planning and construction of buildings, as the common base makes it possible to work closely together across disciplines in construction projects. In this project, BIM-based planning methods are developed, which make the influence of planning decisions on energy efficiency quantifiable and controllable in the management process.
BIMstocks - Digital Urban Mining Platform: Assessing the material composition of building stocks through coupling of BIM to GIS
The main goal of BIMstocks is the development of a method for the digital capturing of the material composition of the existing building stock for follow up modelling of an Urban Mining Platform as well as for the prediction of the recycling potentials.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The main objectives of this project are to discuss the economic feasibility of the production and distribution of biogas used as transportation fuel and to identify those types of local distribution systems that are already economically feasible under the present economic conditions in Austria.
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.
By establishing regionally best situated logistic centers it shall be guaranteed that in all of Styria transport and processing costs will be reduced and that a continual supply of biomass firewood of constant quality is ensured.
Biomimetic potentials - Interdisciplinary identification and preparation of innovative biological inspired key technologies for "Plus-energy buildings of the future"
Experts from various branches of industry and research as well as bionics representatives worked out innovative ideas regarding "Key technologies for Plus-Energy-Buildings". The results provide a collection of emergent bionic research potential for the implementation of innovative research in the Austrian building sector.
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.
"Biotope City" is an overall concept for the implementation of comprehensive urban greening with the aim of using the regenerative mechanisms of nature. With this approach, quality of life is to be comprehensively, sustainably and cost-effectively increased and resilience against extreme weather events in cities will be improved. The project aims to generate realistic components of a "construction manual" for the green city of the future, which are generalizable and transferable.
Business GuideLines Inducing Social Sustainability (BLISS): a practical guidance based on the instrument 'social performance analysis', its adaptation and application in a pilot enterprise.
Purpose of this project was to realise a wireless intelligent home, that can be radio controlled from each bluetooth compatible mobile (2 mrd in curculation all over around the world). Entrence, security and also to control electrical devices where the cornerstones of this project.
The objective of the project BONSEI! is the support of an energy efficient and socially acceptable densification of privately owned residential buildings in urban space and the development of 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.
Booklet issued by Building of Tomorrow with about 20 practical passive house thermal bridges free connection details for large-volume residential buildings
In particular, for buildings with very low energy consumption on heating the influence of heat bridges have a special value. Since in passive house construction a largely heat bridge free execution is required, the most frequent and significant heat bridges are collected in a booklet.
Build to satisfy: Modeling of user behavior in lowest and plus energy buildings: Consequences for building and comfort
Aim of the project was a better understanding and modeling of effects of user behavior on energy performance in office and service buildings, built with lowest energy building and plus-energy building techniques. The results support facility managers of office/service buildings and integrate gender and diversity issues.
