Development of thin aluminium sheets for applications in air-conditioners and cooling systems.Property optimisation - plasticity improvement with retained strength. Optimization of technology aimed at energy and material savings.
Upgrade some conventional wastewater treatment systems, simplifying them by more efficient construction or more cost effective maintenance. Introduction and putting into use of innovative wastewater treatment technologies.
The aim is to achieve a stable fed-batch or continuous production of la on a large scale. Emphasis will be put on selecting strains producing l(+) la and the efficient integration of the bioprocess with downstream processing.
Define/develop an innovative driving simulation product for automotive r & d (vehicle design to human factors). This new tool based on current virtual reality/simulation techniques will make european car manufacturers more competitive.
Biopolyester formation will be achieved by feeding micro- organisms on edible oily acids, carbohydrates and some aliphatic carboxylic acids to produce polyhydroxy- alkanoates. Potential food application will be examined.
The aim is to design a test machine to measure creep/tensile fatigue behaviour of today's sutures to establish a base for structural-mechanical property relationship and design optimum operation thread for specific wound tissue type.
Convert all types and kinds of untanned skins in their bated, drenched, or pickled condition via a one-stage process into into pure white, full, plump or grain leather by treatment with modified melamine formaldehyde resins.
Investigate technologies suitable to treat textile dyeing effluents so that most can be re-used in dyeing and/or finishing processes; test advanced colours/organics removal; select most appropriate dissolved solids removal systems.
Development of equipment, procedures and methods to monitor liquid emissions in wastewater plants. Data are transmitted on-line to a distant control post, as well as plant control so that corrections can be made in due time.
The aim is to design and implement a 50-400 hz, 115-440v, s-phase power converter generating 10 kva-100 kva to be utilised for high frequency motors and in maintenance and power generation in airports and ships.
