There are 198 results.
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.
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 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.
Development of criteria for the communication of energy efficiency for classifying plastics processing machines
The aim of this project is the development of a measuring standard for the energy demand and efficiency criteria for classifying plastics processing machines. Based on this a communication instrument for the energy efficiency shall be developed.
An extrusion process is applied for the production of foamed profiles and filling materials consisting of biogenous raw materials. Pellets can be used as insulation material in the building industry, profiles shall break into new markets because of its little weight.
Development of high quality ecological solutions for thermal insulation systems on the basis of reed
Exterior and interior insulation systems containing reed as insulation material were developed. The solutions integrate insulation material, fastening and plaster (as well as optional heating for the interior insulation). A concept for the renovation of an old building using a reed insulation system was developed.
Development of low emission cleaning processes for metal surfaces considering manufacturing processes within the automotive industry
Development of technological optimisation of cleaning processes within the automotive industry which guarantee defined cleaning requirements and fulfil the criteria of a sustainable process design with near zero emissions.
Development of methods and procedures to automate the operative production control and scheduling considering the aspects of sustainability
The production order doesn't only influence logistic and operational ratios, but also shows effects on the environment as well as ergonomics and the staff's psychology. Aim of the project was to develop a method to optimize the job order planning in consideration of an integrated evaluation in terms of sustainable economic activity.
Development of microreactor technology for enzymatic processes and application for lactose conversion
Accelerated design of a pilot scale process for enzyme-catalyzed hydrolysis of lactose in whey using microreactor technologies. Development of a prototypical immobilized enzyme microreactor for optimisation of enzymatic reactions; improved gathering of process-relevant parameters for reduced time-to-market and decision support for investment decisions.
Development of miniaturized, ceramic high-temperature fuel-cell-components using resources-perserving mass-production processes
The application of nano scaled powder and powder injection moulding (PIM) for energy efficient co-sintering of miniaturized solid oxid fuel cells which can produce current and heat by using renewable raw materials.
Developtement of a procedure to increase the sustainability along the supply chain through integration of customer and supplier knowledge
Development of a procedure for the design of innovative and sustainable products, processes and services by making use of customer and supplier knowledge. Orientation of the developed sustainability strategy towards the supply chain of producing SMEs.
Foam bodies are produced by extrusion of renewable primary products and/or residue and then squeezed with adhesives to plates, which can be used for door inner layers.
Developing an integrative concept for the evaluation of sustainability achievements of enterprises noted at Vienna's stock exchange.
Transfer of conceptual knowledge about rating of sustainability performance of SMEs to three different groups of consultants dealing with financial data. Sustainability in business, that is the thesis, contributes significantly to an increasing repay capability.
Sensitizing and capacity building for networking of venture capital and developers of sustainability technologies was performed to develop options for establishing a financing platform which regards sustainability requirements.
A sustainability index will be implemented at the Vienna stock exchange
EasyCell - Design optimization of PEM fuel cells for reducing auxilliaries and simplificating the material-management to facilitate the mass production
EasyCell - A common use of PEM fuel cells is not yet established. It is the aim of this project to optimize the design of PEM fuel cells (minimization of peripheral units, simplified handling of gases and the right design for mass production) to ease a widespread use of PEM fuel cells.
Step by step methodology for the development of future markets by the introduction of eco-efficient product service systems
Optimum communication strategies and motives for the purchase of eco-textiles by specific target groups are investigated. The results are reviewed with respect to the transferability to other branches of sustainable production and marketing. Aim of the project is to foster the supply of eco-textile products and thereby promoting the Austrian eco-textile producers and retailers.
The objective of the project is the method development for sustainable product design in close cooperation with industrial partners. The ECODESIGN Toolbox for Green Product Concepts - a six step approach has been developed here.
