Ultrafiltration and microfiltration module and membrane systems for the production of drinking water and for the treatment of waste water
Software engineering factories constructed around unix system v and the emeraud acceptance structure, the industrial version of the esprit pcte prototype
Research on the physical basics for a multi kw. Solid-state laser with high energy and good beam quality; study process principles, design prototype and scale results to maximum average power for processing.
Remote-controlled, automatic measuring & sampling system for the determination of contaminants/assessment of substances influencing the o2 balance: heavy metals/organic micropollutants/nutrients, chlorophyll, etc.
Intends to provide an integrated, complete/open environment to support business applications engineering. This openness will allow it to be smoothly introduced into existing organisations and support their evolution.
Develop, prove and commercialise an environmentally and user-friendly process to eliminate/reduce disposal of waste salt cake and recover chemical values from bayer process waste salts (salt cake).
Development and experimental production of measurement standards for laser beam and optics characterization. technology and instrumentation for on-line and off-line beam and optics monitoring.
Improvement of efficiency/power output of hydropower plants by better designing runner/turbine/draft tube combination to reduce "flow blockage" and instabilities. A key area is pressure recovery between turbine and tail water channel.
Novel methodologies for preforming and manufacturing thermo- plastic composite columns will be developed. Case study structures will be designed to comply with recent european passive safety standards and fabricated to prove the process
To develop technology and methods for measuring turbulence at tidal energy sites and laboratory scale simulators. The project is carried out by a consortium consisting of six academic and commercial organisations, three in canada and three in uk, with rsi as the lead
