Application of a safe and reliable technology to destroy dioxins and furans contained in off-gas from municipal solid waste incinerators, based on catalytic filtration and design optimisation of the off-gas cleaning system and operation parameters.
Using organic and slaughterhouse waste to produce electrical and thermal energy, and to create a high quality bio-fertiliser that can replace meat-bone-meal on the world market.
Solving the problem of utilising waste materials, such as slag and fly-ash mixtures, stable sewage sludge and other wastes, in the production of artificial soil suitable for land reclamation and remediation of ash deposit sites.
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 long-term stability of s/s waste forms is unknown. Recovered s/s material from europe and the u.S.A. Of different ages will be used to assess stability and to predict long-term behaviour. A risk-management toolbox for improved stakeholder confidence in s/s will be constructed.
Costas. Beach environmental treatment. Elimination of contaminant organics from residual waters through oxidation treatment.
The project deals with finding new materials and technological developments in order to drastrically minimise noise pollution. The central role will be a 1:1 size prototype which provides the required information for future constructions.
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.
Technology will be developed for the production of concrete building materials using polymer waste and inert fillers. In composite concrete a melted polymer will be used as a binding substance instead of cement and will be implemented in waste recycling companies.
