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.
Improvement of functional/nutritional properties of existing protein-rich products and development of new protein-rich products from european protein sources. Specialized and high technological techniques have to be developed.
Development of biotechnological systems to reduce activity of anti-nutritive factors. As a result nutritional value of feed and food will increase, market competition will be improved and excretion of nutrients into environment reduced
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.
Food and fibre agroindustry extruder technology progress is hindered by high equipment costs,high energy consumption and low capacities (tons per unit). There is a need for simple, high input equipment for biopolymer extrusion.
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.
Design and installation of a traffic control centre to control all local traffic controllers in a city. Development of traffic-responsive coordinated control to decrease pollution and noise and increase mobility.
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.
The project objective is to develop an integrated, multilevel, multi-criteria optimisation programme for road traffic in cities and regions. The programme must interface with existing intersection control systems.
