Transfer of results of the program "Factory of Tomorrow" into the target groups of energy managers and energy consultants
Transfer of results of the program "Factory of Tomorrow" with respect to energy efficiency and increased adoption of renewable energy technologies into the target groups of internal energy managers and external energy consultants. The transfer activities include carrying out a one-day-seminar twice and the preparation of freely available training materials.
The project aims to provide the basis for a transition strategy towards the establishment of sustainability-orientated production and consumption systems. Together with participants and addressees of the programme "Factory of the Future", the project will develop a common framework for the management of transition processes.
The project analysed selected TRIGOS projects and organisations and further developed assessment approaches for sustainable management accounting and corporate social responsibility. TRIGOS is an award scheme for organisations who combine economic performance with social and environmental responsibility.
During a two days training course managers are trained in sustainable management.
Using the Sustainability Balanced Scorecard (SBSC) at operational and inter-operational level (ÖKOPROFIT) for reconciliating the systems of objectives in the realm of sustainability
Further development and implementation of the sustainability scorecard for definition of sustainable objectives on cross-company level (local agenda 21 project ÖKOPROFIT) and company level. Comparing the target systems.
Use of waste heat and covering of the remaining energy demand by the renewable energy sources hydropower and biomass in a metal-processing company.
Analysis of the water absorption in Wood Plastic Composites (WPC) in order to develop solutions to decrease and stop water absorption. This enables a big variety of new applications made of WPC and brings economical and ecological advantages for the polymer processing industries.
Inquiry of requirements, implementation of qualification schemes and coaching in the design of sustainability reports for selected companies of the styrian automobile cluster with special emphasis on environmental and social costs.
Development of a wood composite direct dosing system
Development of a new generation extrusion tool for a wood plastic composite. This material will be developed in a second project an should show a fiber content of 60 - 85%. Important is a high profile quality as well as a high output to ensure an economical production.
The mechanical properties and thus the application area of wood plastic composites with a wood content > 60 % shall be explicit increased by means of long wood fibres. The realization of a technological direct feeding system in extrusion process will enable an innovation jump of this wood like material.
Development of wood-processing techniques employing high-frequency ultrasonic vibrations in terms of applications in the woodworking industry.
Elaboration of the principles for zero emission enterprises. The results show that this approach can be realistic and economically advantageous in many cases.
Method to optimize existing galvanizing plants consequently with the goal of zero emission and zero waste enterprises, to minimize operating cost including benchmarks and three case studies
ZERMEG II is the follow up project of ZERMEG, which was commissioned after the first call of the Austrian Factory of the Future program in 2001. The project developed a method to revamp existing galvanising plants in order to operate them with a maximum reduction of the use of chemicals and maximum recycling.
ZERMEG III - Decision guidance for the visualisation of the achievements of sustainable corporate strategies
ZERMEG III creates a virtual factory of the future from the combination of the research results of different projects. This model will be used to generate real experience for managers in experimenting taking organisational and technical decisions with regard to a sustainable development.
Minimisation of the consumption of water, chemicals and energy in the textile industry. Further development of the ZERMEG approach in the form of a questionnaire and application in the textile industry.
