Developing of a application for central visualisation of the energy and resource demand in a private household "ZENVIS"
The main focus of the research project ZENVIS is set on the analysis of the benefits provided by a "visualization device", which gathers the readings of energy and resource consumption (electricity, gas, water, heat energy and fuel consumption). This device ought to find its use in households and to allow the consumer to observe and to control his energy consumption.
Development and evaluation of criteria and methods for the qualitity assurance of thermally treated hardwood
The goal of this project is the devepolment and evaluation of criteria and measurement methods for the quality assurance of thermally treated hardwood. They are to be implemented directly into the production process of Thermowood to increase the resource efficiency and the customer acceptance.
Development and optimization of a parabolic trough solar collector for generation of process heat for industrial processes
Development and optimization of a parabolic trough solar collector for generation of process heat for industrial processes. The operating performance and optimization possibilities of a prototype were evaluated and an improved prototype was tested with respect to its efficiency characteristics as well as in a small-scale application with a realistic load profile.
Development of a "Light Well" for daylight transparent, highly energy-efficient, multi-story buildings
Daylight supply of multi-story buildings with the help of rooflight openings. Reflecting vertical ducts transport light down to the lowermost floor. The idea promises new building structures with daylight transparency and high energy-efficiency that have a minimal demand of artificial light and cooling at optimal comfort.
Development of a comprehensive procedure within the design of high-speed-cutting processes in consideration of environmental protection and occupational health aspects
In the metal working industry high-speed-cutting (HSC) in connection with minimal quantity cooling-lubrication promises a high potential for saving process materials. On the one hand costs of purchase and disposal of metal working fluids (MWF) decrease, on the other hand the reduction of dermal diseases and emissions of MWF-dusts are expected.
With the development of a hydrogen-carbon nanofiber production in a continuous process carbon nanofibers can be produced in an economic way and at the same time access to environmentally friendly hydrogen is enabled.
Development of a cost-benefit-tool which reaches beyond a pure cost approach and also recognizes the benefits of a building for its inhabitants and users. The inclusion of benefits is based on existing evaluation systems, especially on the Austrian building evaluation system TQB - Total Quality Building, which has been revised in 2009.
Development of a GIS-Onlineplatform for the forestry which enables its users to carry out all necessary tasks online: the complete data of forest work can be viewed, changed and newly calculated at any time, including the ability to control machine-use more efficiently right at the beginning of use.
Development of a holistic valuation of enterprise-activities for sustainability and field test in leading industrial companies - InaBe
The development of a holistic model comprising method and instrument to evaluate ac-tivities from companies in context with sustainable development by integrating objective and subjective view.
Development of a method and an innovative machine for the industrial application of environmentally friendly, mineral oil free lubricants in deep drawing processes
Eliminating the usage of mineral oil based lubricants in deep drawing processes by an innovative machine for clean application of environmentally friendly wax-based forming emulsions.
Development of a moulding technique for wood-based composites for the production of biogenic SiC-Ceramics.
New methods to produce SiC- ceramics based on wood based materials were developed and the samples developed were characterized according to their properties. The main objectives dimension stability and carbon utilization was analyzed.
Improvement of operational parameters (efficiency, quality of current waveform, reduced size and weight) and reduction of manufacturing costs
The target of this project is to develop a specific performance and risk-management concept for companies in sustainable supply chain networks. By using this concept the involved companies will be able to reduce various risks and have more success with sustainable development.
Based on experience with low-energy-windows, a solid wood window is being developed, which meets passivehouse-standards.
Development of a starch based thermoplastic Biopolymer as substitution of standard polymers in niche applications
Developement of a businessnetwork for the market implementation of biodegradable products made out of renewable substances.
Development of a strategy for industrialized serial production of ecological passive houses made out of renewable resources
Development of a strategy for industrialized seria. production of ecological passive solar houses made out of building materials based on renewable resources as foundation for the dissemination of sustainable solutions for the production of prefabricated houses and of single houses.
Development of affordable building equipment and services for future "Energy Plus houses" (Plus-Hybrid)
"Plus-Hybrid" integrates knowledge and experience from current activities and complement them by adopting a holistic approach, considering the intelligent interconnection of components as well as managing the planned efforts and human resources in time. The goal of this project was to develop affordable building equipment and services for future "Energy Plus houses".
Development of agitation systems in biogas plants in order to optimize mixing-behaviour and to reduce energy demand with the help of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation
The purpose of this project is the investigation of the mixing-behaviour and performance of the agitation systems in biogas plants, and to present them through Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation. This EDP-tool can model and predict the actual fluid dynamics in a closed system. Thus it may help to plan optimal reactor geometries, position and combination of agitation systems as well as to minimize the energy requirements.
Development of an business segment called "Waldbiomasseversorgung-SÜDOST" through senior utilization of non active wood
A sharp increase in the Austrian industry's demand for wood, and in particular the rising need of biomass plant operators for energy wood, has led to a fundamental transformation of the timber market from a buyer's to a seller's market. New marketing opportunities in terms of a range of wood energy products, combined with an efficient way of harvesting, have opened up new economic prospects for the forestry industry.
Development of an eco-efficient alternate building material by using biogenic fountain remnants to act as binders
Development of alternative construction material "Mixolith" with wood ashes from power plants (biomass energy) as hydraulic binders. Evidence of product properties for construction of embankment safeguard dams or road construction. Many years of experience with alternative construction material.
