Integrated Service Models for increased resource-efficiency in the business-to-business sector (INERIWI)
For the major resource intensive commercial sectors the real function of products will be ana-lysed and elaborated how to provide the function of the product without selling it. Based on the present material intensity of the branches the potential reduction of environmental burden by applying such models as well as economic and social implications will be deduced.
Integration of aspects of sustainable investment into the training programme of selected financial service providers
Awareness raising and knowledge transfer by means of information processing and training of financial service providers concerning sustainable investment
INTOKI- Methods and tools for consumers' and stakeholder involvement in the development of sustainable products and services
Supporting SME bakeries in the involvement process of their stakeholders in sustainability oriented product service innovation processes. Development and pilot testing of a dialogue oriented toolkit ("The INNOVATIVE Bakery Dialogue" Handbook).
Pollen for medical applications can be sorted by special machines. An integrated database and a spectrometric calibration allow a precise separation of the species with an identification of the plant species.
Kräuterhexen (herb witches) - Creation of value by remedies and wellness-products made of regional raw materials
Regional manufacturers and suppliers of products made of renewable raw materials shall be summarized to develop a common product line with corporate identity and corresponding quality management to sale more and increase the value in the wellness sector.
The methodology of living labs centers the requirements of the user into the development process. The original approach of the MIT should be adapted to the sustainable discrete production in the region of Vorarlberg as a living lab.
Maize cobs accrue as an agricultural by-product can be used for a core material of light weight panels with good material properties and insulation characteristics. The aim was to work out a concept for the production and optimisation of material properties.
ARAFIT develops a concept for the regional management of the loads of public water treatment plants in a partnership of planners, operators and major water consumers following the idea of sustainable least cost planning resulting in efficient, flexible and future oriented regional infrastructure.
Concept for launching of a new business unit or an independent ROI-Contracting Consulting with effects on sustainable development.
Mechanical processing of the non-reusable part of collected end-of-life apparels (e.g. cutting, sifting, etc.); development of marketable application for the obtained short fibers in the field of construction materials (e.g. bitumen modification)
Development of strong, light, weather and heat resistant natural fiber profiles by combining the the advantages of a pultrusion technology with the advantages of natural fibers.
NATUBAR - Natural raw materials for specific barrier applications in paper and board (SUSPRISE Joint Call)
NATUBAR is an industrial research project. It consists of researching and developing a totally new approach to starch modification namely selective oxidation as patented by Glycanex as well as the application in modern folding box boards and the photopaper production environment.
New cooperations between agriculture und industry are necessary to ensure the utilization of renewable materials. The project´s focus is upon natural dyes and their application in textile industry. The goal of the project is to create a contact institution which connects various suppliers of diverse plant materials, takes on the processing, and standardising of the natural dyes, and makes a product that can be used by the industry.
Wood Plastic Composites (WPC) should gain new market potential and create new value via applications in injection moulding. Therefore it is necessary to develop a formulation suitable for injection moulding to access the existing market potential.
Identification of potentials to use hardwood with small diameters (SDH) in Austria with the help of the value added chain from the forest's location to the processor. Analysis and evaluation of availability, quality and market potential.
New and better solvents for CO2 absorption can reduce the costs of Carbon Capture and Storage significantly. Therefore, the ability to absorb CO2 and the vapour - liquid equilibrium curve of different new solvents will be determined in the laboratory and under real operating conditions at a power plant. Furthermore, the achievable CO2 removal efficiency of spray towers will also be investigated for different solvents.
Instruments and Strategies for the involvement of users and other relevant social groups in the design process: the example of fuel cell technology in end-user markets and wood-plastic composites.
Creating all the necessary fundamentals for a future standard in funding the "SMEs of the future" with private equity in order to close the money gap of these companies by providing "green money".
Developement of a concept of "service ozone as a special gas" has the main reason to support the chemical industrie, laboratories and others to substitute chemical oxidatives, which is a big ökological advantage.
The application of PEM fuel cells is limited to certain singular products. The reason for this are the relatively high prices for the components of a PEM fuel cell. It is the aim of this project to fabricate the components of a PEM fuel cell by using mass production technologies such as injection moulding. In sequence this will lead to wide-spread applications of PEM fuel cells (personal-power-plant).
