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.
Development of biological filters for gaseous emissions has been launched. The implementation to initial exploitation and up to full exploitation will include a new partner, the pulp and paper institute from poland.
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.
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.
Re-engineering of international transport along main european corridors for sustainable freight mobility. The aim is to stimulate freight chains in europe, improve and develop competitiveness for intermodal transport chains.
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.
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.
