A fiber-strengthening system for production of paperboard from recycled paper materials
Development of a reliable automatic early warning and localisation system for both gradual and catastrophic dam and dike failure during flood events, based on the combination of geosynthetic functions and integrated fibre optic and/or electrical sensors.
Develop methods for the use of geosynthetic bags in shore structures in cold regions. Such structures are environmentally-friendly because they use locally available geological material.
There are two main challenges: 1. To become sustainable by reducing resource consumption, managing transport and utility networks in a sustainable way, reducing environmental and man-made impacts, improving safety and security and protecting cultural heritage; 2. To become a demand-driven sector.
To develop a new process of reinforced concrete, based on a very innovative concept, using flat stainless steel bars with rectangular section, instead of traditional corrugated round bars.
Develop a specific lightweight expanded clay aggregate / geosynthetic container system suitable for construction of environmentally-friendly and cost-effective infrastructures.
The "exter+" project will work on the design of a robot and its innovative drill head for the installation and the maintenance of underground electricity distribution cables.
To design and develop a faucet which enables water and energy saving and contributes to sustainability of our world's resources while enhancing the life quality of people. It also doesn't necessitate extra heater or any renewals in the current installation of homes.
