Creation of a platform to stimulate r & d and technology transfer for wood products and in the processing industries, in order to initiate projects emphasising the environmentally-friendly role of wood.
Research into the possibility of installing a continuous monitoring system and registration of environmentally harmful gas emissions in an east european region. Research into the various types of pollutants in emission gases.
Determining the optimal mixture and technology for treatment of an industrial waste sludge/agromass to utilise its energy for heat or power and set an effort to reach emission levels acceptable to european standards for this material.
Application of biological dump leaching, involving the use of a bacterial agent to catalyse the selective dissolution of a valuable metal under environmentally safe and economic conditions.
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.
The aim is to monitor solid particle atmospheric pollution using laser radar techniques in the visible and infrared band of the spectrum as well as calibrate the results using local measurement methods.
Improvement of zinc (alloy) composite coatings through electroplating as a coating technique; improvement of corrosion resistance and tribological properties using non-toxic components.
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.
A specialised microscope and method for fine and precise laser cleaning and spectro-microscopic analysis of fine art object surfaces; the system will contain a pulsed nd:yag laser for cleaning and a laser diode system for aiming.
