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.
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.
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.
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.
