The consortium has chosen the topic of circular economy (CE) as the focus of this project, because it concerns the transition from a take – make – use – dispose model that depletes natural resources and destroys ecosystems to a circular model where the value of products, materials and resources is maintained in the economy for as long as possible and the generation of waste is minimized. It has be ...

Design for Resource and Energy efficiency in cerAMic kilns (DREAM)

Start date: Oct 1, 2016, End date: Sep 30, 2019,

The DREAM project aims to design, develop and demonstrate a radically improved architecture for ceramic industrial furnaces, characterised by optimised energy consumption, reduced emissions, and lower operating costs compared to currently available technological solutions. This will be obtained by substantially enhancing specific furnace parts (control system, refractories, emissions abatement sys ...

Secure Management Platform for Shared Process Resources (SHAREBOX)

Start date: Sep 1, 2015, End date: Aug 31, 2019,

To pave the way forward for IS as a solution for more efficient processing and energy systems for the process industry, we will develop a secure ICT platform (SHAREBOX) for the flexible management of shared process resources that will provide plant operations and production managers with the robust and reliable information that they need in real-time in order to effectively and confidently share r ...

Waste heat is a problem common to high temperature processing industries as a significantly underused resource, often due to challenges in economic heat valorisation. Secondary aluminium recycling and ceramic processing were identified as key examples with economically recoverable waste heat. Several challenges are inherent; these processes are batch-based rather than continuous with corrosive par ...

IbD® will create a holistic platform for facilitating process intensification in processes in which solids are an intrinsic part, the cornerstone of which will be an intensified-by-design® (IbD). The IbD approach is hinged on the use of robust data about a process to ‘redesign’, modify, adapt and alter that process in a continuous, intensified system, and will be the new paradigm in the intensific ...

"In 1997, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified Respirable Crystalline Silica (RCS) in the form of quartz or crystobalite from occupational sources as carcinogenic for humans (category 1). Crystalline silica is an essential raw material for the production of virtually all the goods of everyday life. As a consequence, there can be significant amounts of RCS in the enviro ...

Bioresistancy of building and finishing materials usually requires addition of dedicated bioactive chemicals, so-called biocides. The usual increase in biocide concentration only results in a minor prolongation of the material service-life. For example, coatings usually exhibit biocidal functionality between 0.5 and 2 years – depending on environmental loads –, whereas the desired service life in ...

Recent work has shown the possibility to drastically increase the reflection performance of the building envelop, using nanotechnologies. Standard metal oxides are already known for their solar reflection properties, but latest developments identified that nanotechnologies can improve Index of Reflectance from an average of 0,35 to 0,85 because of their effectiveness on Near Infrared wavelengths, ...

Development of a high grip designing tool (ULTRAGRIP)

Start date: Oct 1, 2010, End date: Sep 30, 2012,

"Due to strong competition from Asian countries encountered recently, footwear and flooring Manufacturers hope to achieve a high quality product with new performance in order to stand-out from the vast range of products that are currently available on the market. Increasingly important factors with regard to both footwear (professional and for everyday use) and floorings are safety and comfort. Ma ...
