IEA IETS Annex 11: Industrial Biorefineries (Working period 2020-2022)
IEA IETS Annex 11 pursues the goal of developing industrial solutions to achieve extensive decarbonization of various energy sectors through integrated biorefineries. Decision-making tools will be developed to support industry in the development of sustainable bio-economy strategies and to focus on reducing of GHG emissions.
IEA IETS Annex 15: Industrial Excess Heat Recover (Phase 3)
Within the framework of the IEA IETS Annex 15 (Phase 3), potentials for the use of waste heat as well as technologies for its integration are collected, bundled and processed through contributions from national research activities. The contributions of the Austrian consortium included technology development and integration concepts of heat pump and energy storage systems, risk analysis in the implementation of waste heat projects, and work on operation optimization and design of hybrid energy systems.
IEA IETS Annex 17: Membrane filtration for energy-efficient separation of lignocellulosic biomass components
The overarching goal of IEA IETS TCP Annex 17 is to strengthen the network of the Austrian membrane and biorefinery landscape.
IEA IETS Annex 17: Membrane processes in biorefineries (Working period 2020 - 2022)
Overarching goal of IEA IETS TCP Annex 17 was to strengthen the network of the Austrian membrane and biorefinery landscape. The aim was the optimized use of lignocellulose material in biorefineries by using efficient and sustainable membrane technologies. For this purpose, emerging membrane technologies were evaluated towards applications for biomass components valorization and a guidance on integration possibilities of emerging membrane technologies was developed.
IEA IETS Annex 18: Digitalization, artificial intelligence and related technologies for energy efficiency and reduction of GHG emissions in industry
Annex 18 Task 2 provides an overview of the methods, applications and requirements of digital twins in different industrial sectors. The focus is on relevant solutions for improving energy efficiency and reducing GHG emissions. The potential of these solutions is evaluated and business cases and recommendations for action are developed. The interdisciplinarity and the international consortium enable the development of a network of experts from research and industry.
IEA IETS Task 11: Industrial Biorefineries (Working period 2022-2024)
Biorefineries producing a portfolio of biobased products or bioenergy are the backbone of the growing bioeconomy. IEA IETS Task 11 aims to minimize greenhouse gas emissions to net zero along different biorefinery pathways. Tools and methodologies for increasing energy efficiency and the use of renewable energies are to be summarized and disseminated to relevant target groups.
IEA IETS Task 17: Membrane processes in biorefineries (Working period 2023 - 2025)
Biorefineries are essential for the transition from petroleum- to a biobased industry. The use of biomass as raw material for recyclable materials, chemicals and energy sources is essential and requires efficient and sustainable production processes. This project aims to strengthen national and international know-how transfer between research and development for membrane-based processes in biorefineries. The focus is on application, improvement and innovation in all aspects of membrane distillation.
IEA IETS Task 21 Decarbonizing industrial systems in a circular economy framework
Energy and CO2 savings through circular economy, especially directly through carbon circularity (CCU), and resource and energy efficiency through industrial symbiosis are two key approaches to decarbonizing industry.
IEA Industrial Energy-Related Technologies and Systems (IETS TCP)
The Industrial Energy-Related Technology Programme (IETS) focuses on energy use in a broad range of industry sectors. It fosters international co-operation amongst relevant research strands, networking within and across industrial sectors, as well as exchange of information and knowledge between experts from industry, science and politics.
IEA-IETS Annex 15: Industrial Excess Heat Recover (Phase 2)
In the framework of IEA IETS Annex 15 potentials of excess heat and technologies for their integration were collected from national research projects, bundled and elaborated on. This way, a broad knowledge base was built on experience gained in carrying out surveys for potential use of excess heat. Experiences with questionnaires, process integration tools and extrapolation of data using existing knowledge about the respective energy systems were exchanged. A process database with detailed process information could also be established, which can be used for further research activities. Also, in the area of policy instruments, recommendations for future measures to increase the use of surplus heat were derived on the basis of national contributions.
IEA-IETS Annex 19: Industrial Electrification
Industrial electrification can make a major contribution to CO2 reduction. The aim of the annex is a transfer of knowledge between the international and the state level. At national level, stakeholder engagement aims to clarify the topic of industrial electrification, compare roadmaps and resources, and analyze potential benefits from (joint) programs.
