Development of a new set of advanced devices for pollution agents captation due to industrial woodworking/metalworking processes. The results will permit the spread of design criteria for the environment.
Development of a decision support system to reduce noise emission and improve energy efficiency of fans in important applications: automotive, home appliances, commercial refrigerators and air conditioning.
Investigation and technological development of new products based on exfoliated vermiculite, to tackle environmental pollution caused by liquid aliphatic, aromatic and polycyclic hydrocarbons and their derivatives.
Homogeneous economic-environmental monitoring methodlogy for the study of complementarities and similarities between alternative processes (bio-methanisation and composting) by means of physical-chemical and agronomic full-scale analyses.
The project focuses on the design and development of novel catalytic composite materials for the abatement of nox produced during the combustion of fossil fuels (natural gas, coal) in stationary devices, and of n2o in nitric acid plant at either high or low temperatures.
Conception and construction of long duration self-contained breathing apparatus for emergency escapes
The project consists of the integration of different technologies (dangerous substance detectors, vision systems, telematics, etc.) Into a single system able to provide an effective tool for preventing terrorist attacks in metro facilities.
Sensor intelligent systems for monitoring body and environmental conditions, integrated into intelligent textile products (work clothing, firemen uniforms, etc.). Features: nanofilms, data acquisition, personal alarm, building blocks, low cost.
To construct an experimental plasma reactor capable of processing (recycling and energetically utilising) waste materials from the metallurgical and chemical industry, electronic waste, and waste from the pharmaceutical industry and health sector.
To develop the stabilisation/solidification method so that those responsible for harbours & other areas with contaminated sediments & other dredged materials can analyse & apply the s/s method as alternative to the current methods of treatment
