New uses for environmentally beneficial moulding material binders (alkali silicate basis) for the foundry industry with optimal properties for moulding material preparation and used moulding material regeneration/recycling.
Development and arrangement of flexible product and process- oriented organisational structures in the mould making industry assisted by an integrated information system based on the total quality management concept.
Energy utilisation of biomass via gasification in fluidised- bed reactor to obtain energogas, either as a fuel for gas combustion engines or turbines for the co-generation of heat and power or as a replacement for traditional fuels.
Market research, product development, chemicals manufacture system. Applications: analytical chemistry/pharmaceutical intermediates/diagnostics/personal care/cosmetics. 3 areas of independent expertise will be linked to develop this.
Set up computerised system to monitor and evaluate key quality assurance parameters in dyestuffs and pigment production. These will be processed in an expert subsystem to provide a feedback service to optimise final formulation.
The project encompasses complex solution of a bioremediation technology:microbial degradation of organic pollutants,whole cell immobilization, reactor design and environmental engineering enabling tailor-made bioremedial actions.
Design and development of an information system dedicated to management of engineering/manufacturing companies that deliver either by unit or in small series sophisticated machinery requiring a high degree of customization.
Preparation of new monoclonal antibodies working on formaldehyde-fixed, paraffin wax embedded materials.In vitro production of monoclonal antibodies, development of new methods of stabilisation.
Development of new materials for hardfacing against abrasion and hydro-abrasion with longer life and better environmental conditions than those of currently used materials.
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.
