Focus on metallic high entropy alloys (mhea) for extreme industrial applications to generate knowlege on manufacturing, microstructure and properties
Upgrading post-consumer PET by using thermally activated crosslinking agents
Micro-Enhanced PV: Planar optical micro-tracking for high efficiency solar panels
Experimental and theoretical determination of the distribution of primary and secondary air pollutants in order to understand and predict their chemical transformation and their transport over europe.
Global waste management service. This will be the result of the integration of existing know-how and development of new technologies. Development efforts will focus on: recycling, treatment and control evaluation/optimisation.
Will support further development of abatement strategies within europe by providing an improved scientific basis for the quantification of source-receptor relationships for photo-oxidants and acidifying substances.
Development of methodologies to identify dynamic models based on in-operation data, with an additional focus on monitoring and fault prediction and diagnosis. Applications in a variety of different sectors will be pursued.
Aim: exploit coal slimes by adapting preparation techniques for improved combustion in mechanically-stoked boilers, direct combustion in fluidised bed boilers. New coal-oil- water fuels will be developed.
The focus will be on both on eco-design and end-of-life management, particularly because of the legislative impact of the european commission's new directive (dg xi), which will probably come into force in 2003.
The objective of this strategic project is to apply new biotechnological tools and agronomic technologies to improve the european forestry sector.
