To analyse all known biological and technological problems in biogas production and to propose appropriate operating conditions for upgrading efficiency and process stability in the biogas plants.
High quality residuals from the wind energy industry (prepreg) are currently subject to expensive disposal. Such material will be recycled followed by development of certified plastics for the construction sector.
Development of a new type of binder based on alkali activated blast furnace slag and use of blast furnace slag cement with regard to the alkali-silica reaction in concrete
Will bring to the prototype a tool for monitoring water quality based on voltammetric analysis by boron doped diamond electrodes (fe, cu, zn, as, ag, pb, ni) and ion selective electrodes (nh4, no3, cl, k, ca, na) for all water types.
Research and development of a process for recovering and recycling materials coming from end-of-life car shredding residue that nowadays go to landfill, against the background of eu directive 2000/53/ce and the kyoto agreement.
To develop hydraulic and pneumatic systems that from the point of view of noise emission meet and exceed the csn iso 73 0527 requirements and pi applications in theatre techniques en 1570 requirements.
A new well regeneration system is to be developed. In comparison to the latest available technology, it will require a maximum 50% use of chemicals whilst doubling the regeneration cycle time.
The objective is r&d of a detector of dangerous radionuclides and its implementation into an explosives analyser which was developed under a eureka project. This combination of analysers introduces a unique detection technology.
Drinking water sources are becoming increasingly contaminated with emerging substances (e.G., Pharmaceuticals and hormones). Currently no sufficient treatment technology is available. In this project belgian, german and dutch partners develop an absolute barrier for emerging substances.
The objective of the project is to obtain a commercial product (prototype) from germanium, by an innovative technology that allows to recover the element of interest in the form of compound from the leach residue (borras) generated in the treatment hydrometallurgy of smelter flue dust.
