Combustion carbon dioxide from municipal waste incinerators will be converted into micro-algal biomass. Controlled enhancement of algal starch and lipid synthesis enables exploitation of the biomass as a raw material for biofuel production.
To adapt engines and their internal components, such as combustion engines, for use with non-conventional fuels and lubricants, minimising noise and gas emissions caused by engines and improving the lifetime of components.
To develop a new composite material based on the active element tin with final use as anode material for li-ion batteries. This represents a battery energy gain of 25% which will extend the use of electrical energy in portable applications.
The consortium of 3 german and 1 austrian sme will develop an energy optimised switch heater for railways, reducing the costs for energy by about 65%, increasing the performance figure e from less than 3 to more than 4 and thus improving the sustainability and co2-balance accordingly.
Study and development of innovative modular units for an efficient and sustainable collecting and use of solar radiation. Study and development of a production process (innovative automated production, assembly and testing systems).
To develop photovoltaic solar modules and production processes for: *large area/low cost innovative nano-structured si pin devices increasing efficiencies from 7 to above 10%; *hybrid junctions to take efficiencies further and gain other product characteristics like transparency; *flexible pv.
The intended project proposes to create a multi utility solution for energy monitoring - electricity, water and gas - in school buildings. This information will be crossed with weather information and will be available to the students through developed pedagogical software.
The consortium wants to develop bluetec, an innovative integrated concept for generating electrical power from marine tidal currents at 50% of the costs of current technologies.
We aim at a production of 150 tons of algae per year per ha and an energy balance of 4 times as much useful algae energy output as fossil energy input to make the process running. this project focuses on optimistion of the chain of cultivating, harvesting and valorising algae biomass.
The major focus of the project is development of a dual-fuel supply system for diesel engines using alternative fuel. The research program on fuel will assess the possibility of using biogas as a fuel for compression ignition engines of non-road vehicles and machines used in agriculture.
