Demonstration building of the eco²building system: First passive house prefabricated wood building system for commercial and industrial buildings
The EU funded "eco2building" construction system in a timber-frame based modular design represents a systematic approach for energy efficient commercial and industrial buildings. The object of the eco²building demonstration project - the logistics centre in passive-house quality for "Eine Welt Handel AG" - in Niklasdorf was to optimize the planning and construction processes and prepare for the market launch of the eco²building construction system. Accompanying research monitored and disseminated the experience.
Demonstration project LifeCycle Tower - batch-produced energy efficient timber/hybrid high-rise building system
The energy efficient building concept shall be tested with regard to its functional efficiency and real usage conditions. The demonstration project is based upon the results of previous research activities and shall be presented to a wider public. It shall illustrate the advantages of a batch-produced timber/hybrid high-rise building system which offers high quality of energy and resource efficiency.
Within the project at hand a production plant with store house and offices had been constructed. It serves as a reality testing field for long-term measurement of components and systems developed in previous projects. It serves for the demonstration of innovative energy systems and components for the interested public and for experts.
Development of a new surge tank system for pumped storage schemes (PSS) for the governing of the changing requirements in electricity networks due to integration of renewable, volatile energy sources.
Developing and implementing product-service-systems in the IT-sector. Bringing the idea of sustainable IT-solutions for enterprises towards marketable models.
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.
