On the basis of conventional and recycling-oriented supply-chains and/or -networks a concept for the implementation of industrial sustainability networks will be developed. Together with a taskforce which needs to be founded a pilot implementation will be prepared.
Innovative technology for the treatment of municipal and industrial waste water and process waters (INNOWATEC)
Evaluation of a technology as a supporting module for process water and waste water treatment and testing in laboratory and pilot tests for specific fields of application in operational water management.
Development of the production technology for cattail insulating materials. Basis study to the feasibility of a serial production.
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.
The project aims at the development of integration methods for solar heat into industrial production process with batch operations as typical for SMEs
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.
Based on the results of previous research projects, the project at hand deals with the development of a wooden prefabricated module construction for energy efficient office buildings with up to 20 storeys. This sustainable system ensures cost certainty through the whole life cycle of the building.
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.
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.
Phytozid - Application of tansy extract and its ingredients as insecticides against the codling moth
Extraction of insecticidal active substances in pilot plant scale from tansy for field trials against the economically important pest codling moth (Cydia pomonella) as well as approval procedure in order to develop alternative strategies for naturally based plant protection.
Pilot machine for the production of lightweight sandwich-elements in batch mode consisting only of one polymer component.
Further development of a new technology for the production of lightweight sandwich-elements consisting only of one polymer component (for example polypropylene). This pilot machine is the basis to get all the necessary figures and experience for the development of the production machine and to produce the first parts of the car bodies for the zero series.
