Conventional cooling has adverse effects on environment (eg. ozone depletion, global warming). One option for environmentally compatible cooling systems for near ambient temperatures (-10 to -50°C) is the Stirling cooler with environmental friendly process.
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 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.
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.
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.
Development of a technical process to separate lactic acid from Brown Juice. Lactic acid is a promising chemical commodity which may be produced from silage juice at low costs and in an environmentally friendly way for subsequent synthesis of valuable products.
Sustainable services in co-operation with the housing sector will be investigated, their effects on environment, employment, acceptance by consumers, hindrances as well as prerequisites for sustainable facility management and a new positioning of concierge systems analysed.
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.
