bringing coastal SUBsurface water SOLutions to the market (SUBSOL)

Start date: Sep 1, 2015, End date: Aug 31, 2018,

Coastal areas are the most productive and economically dominant regions of the world. The high water demand in these regions, however, puts tremendous pressure on their freshwater resources and ecosystems. This leads to problems like seasonal water shortage, saltwater intrusion, and disappearance of wetlands. Building on national, regional and European research and innovation programs, in the past ...

STEam And Management Under Pressure (STEAM-UP)

Start date: Mar 1, 2015, End date: Feb 28, 2018,

The industrial sector could reduce its energy use by at least 13%. 75% of the potential savings can be found in steam and electric motor systems. Actions to tap the full potential in steam systems have been taken in the past but without success since findings from energy audits were not, or partly, implemented. The following barriers have been identified:- There is no business case for steam savin ...
