Development and exploitation of technology based on electro- magnetic isochoric plasma heating. As a first application a reactor for combined scrubbing/pumping of hazardous gases used in the microelectronics industry will be developed.
As whole tree harvesting methods in the russian forestry industry involve complex/costly harvesting machines with high impact on biological variety, this project will develop a single grip harvester based on low cost russian carrier.
Development and experimental production of measurement standards for laser beam and optics characterization. technology and instrumentation for on-line and off-line beam and optics monitoring.
Development and implementation of a geographically structured database system for mapping current and historical information of activities on potentially contaminated sites.
An urban air quality management information and decision support system integrating monitoring, modelling,gis, expert systems and decision support in a client/server architecture for easy access in local and wide area networks.
Investigation into the feasibility of a new a 100 kw beam power co2 laser and its potential applications - mainly in laser materials processing.
Flexible communication network in the field of industrial production systems integrated in company operations to develop competitiveness in mfg. Methods/design, mfg.Systems/ technology and organisation/human resource development.
Development of new materials for hardfacing against abrasion and hydro-abrasion with longer life and better environmental conditions than those of currently used materials.
Creation of a platform to stimulate r & d and technology transfer for wood products and in the processing industries, in order to initiate projects emphasising the environmentally-friendly role of wood.
Optimized discontinuous duplex/multi-functional coatings, combining a pulse-plasma nitriding, implantation, pvd, which boosts blanking tools performance as improved mechanical support of coatings enables them to withstand higher loads.
