Development of a Minimum quantity lubrication system employed in metal working industry using an oil-in-water emulsion based on renewable primary products.
The target of this project is the screening of the opportunities, resulting of the combination of treating Cellulosic bodies with supercritical carbon dioxide. In general, the change of the porous structure depending on the way of fiber drying and the opportunity to incorporate active compounds and the development of analytical methods to track them within Cellulosic bodies.
Data-based processes for the creation and formulation of production data for complex industrial plants.
Development and evaluation of a process to automatically create models from existing production data of industrial plants. These models can be used to optimize the production process and plant equipment (scrap, quality, use of raw materials and energy) or to detect and predict faults.
Development of the service of de-lacquering in industrial plants on the basis of pulsed high pressure water with a new, energy efficient high pressure pump. Further possible applications will be searched for and evaluated.
Development of a method and an innovative machine for the industrial application of environmentally friendly, mineral oil free lubricants in deep drawing processes
Eliminating the usage of mineral oil based lubricants in deep drawing processes by an innovative machine for clean application of environmentally friendly wax-based forming emulsions.
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 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.
Windings of rotating machines or electrical generators (e. g. wind and water power generators) are impregnated with resin. A new technology using the heating effect of current is investigated. The high efficiency of heating with the joule effect results in quick heating of stator leading to fast gelling of the resin, which implies low emission.
GREEN BIOREFINERY - Technical, economic and ecological optimisation of value chains by the introduction and efficient use of sustainable raw materials (SUSPRISE Joint Call)
Green Biorefinery stands for the sustainable and highly integrated processing of green biomass into multiple products. The project deals with the assessment and development of required technology for selected feedstock and evaluates market potential for out-products as well as the implementation potential for introduced processes.
The ecological, economic and social effects of services, wood and non-wood products on sustainable forest management, the marketing potential and the relevance of sustainable measures are analysed.
Modelling of wood processing in order to demonstrate the developments' impacts on performance
Increasing of the resources-efficiency by experimental optimisation of steam production and by reduction of production residues in a metal-processing factory
The project is based on the results of the currently running project "Use of waste heat and renewable energy sources in a metal-processing factory". In this project it was found, that nearly the half of the consumption of natural gas is needed for steam production. Based on calculations already carried out, it is planned to investigate experimentally the possibilities of increasing the resource-efficiency by lowering the steam temperature and by replacing steam by hot water. Further increasing of resource-efficiency shall be achieved by use of internal residues as an additional fuel in a solid fuel furnace.
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.
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.
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 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.
