Polymers are already applied in the tanning industry to improve aesthetic characteristics. By utilizing different polymers (technopolymers) we intend to obtain new composite leather products with higher mechanical performances.
In order to better recycle scraps and depuration sludges generated in the tanning industry, free-chrome compounds will be utilised in the industrial process.
The objective of this strategic project is to apply new biotechnological tools and agronomic technologies to improve the european forestry sector.
During this project, the treatment and re-utilization of tanning industry by-products will be studied so that large quantities of solid waste can be exploited. The aim is to reduce disposal costs and produce re-usable products.
Improve depuration technology in the tanning industry,reduce manufacturing costs/environmental impact through a drastic reduction of used chemical products, a significant decrease in final sludges and an improvement in their quality.
Development of a commercial prototype of an innovative cost-effective system for ultra-hard coating at high deposition rates and low temperatures using a new coating method.
The aim is to develop a new optimal catalyst for the production of high-purity bisphenol a, which is colour- stable at high temperatures. This intermediate feedstock is used to manufacture the highest grade polycarbonate resins.
The objective of this strategic project is the application of new technologies for the improvement and sustainability of the tourism, leisure and cultural industry as well increasing the european citizen's standard of life.
The main aim is to design, investigate and develop laser systems and technologies for the restoration of monuments, and art works, environmentally-friendly methods for the fast and precise treatment of objects.
Creation of a platform to stimulate r&d/technology transfer dealing with laser/optics technologies/their applications, e.G. In processing industries, in order to initiate projects emphasizing cooperation between industry/r & d instititions.
