Nano Composite Material and Synthesis Technology for Enhanced Dynamic Stiffness
Upgrading post-consumer PET by using thermally activated crosslinking agents
Friction stir welding (fsw) will be applied to a range of materials/be researched to achieve high welding speeds in increased joint thickness. Processes will be industrialised for real components and applied in commercial production.
Study to develop/commercially validate an inter-modal system for trans-european freight transfer between nordic region and s.E. Europe whose central building block will be a "blue shuttle train" connecting two inter-modal centres.
Development of environment friendly diverse cargo ship types, ecological construction processess, technological and business risk management models and cost effective polish/ swedish infrastructure.
The project combines the know-how in paper and pulp technology of icp with the technical and market know-how of harald bjoerkgren ab and its network. The result is the commercial use of recycled paper instead of other non-renewable resources.
Development of manufacturing technology for a new generation of tools coated by chemical vapour deposition system to increase their service life and strength.
Conception of combustion locomotive modernisation taking into account life cycle cost (lcc). A prototype will be built with full official certification & exploitation research, and the logistic chain of transit carriages will be redesigned.
Improving and re-engineering of international freight transport chains with the target being sustainable freight mobility. The aim is to stimulate freight chains in europe, and improve and develop the competitiveness of intermodal transport chains.
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.
