THE MICRO ALGAE BIOREFINERY (D-FACTORY)

Start date: 01 Dec 2013, End date: 30 Nov 2017,

The D-Factory aims to set a world benchmark for a sustainable biorefinery based on biomass from halophilic microalgae. Representing the largest (100s ha) of current commercial cultivation technologies for any microalga, Dunaliella microalgal biomass production uses raceways and lakes, and will be expanded with biorefinery concepts by drawing in European innovations in key biomass processing techno ...

Silicon kerf loss recycling (SIKELOR)

Start date: 01 Nov 2013, End date: 31 Oct 2016,

"Solar energy direct conversion to electricity is expanding rapidly to satisfy the demand for renewable energy. The most efficient commercial photovoltaic solar cells are based on silicon. While the reuse of feedstock is a severe concern of the photovoltaic industry, up to 50% of the valuable resource is lost into sawdust during wafering. Presently, the majority of silicon ingots are sliced in thi ...

Self–Alerting Safety Jacket (SASJACKET)

Start date: 01 Dec 2012, End date: 30 Nov 2014,

The goal of our project is to develop and integrate an appropriate personal alert and locating beacon (PLB) solution within a life-jacket/PFD so that it becomes integral to the purchase, supply and use of PFDs as Personal Protection Equipment (PPE). These ‘self-alerting’ safety jackets (SASJackets) would be used for local alerting and rescue by maritime and inland waterway employees, passengers, a ...

 FINISHED 
Efficient evacuation from transport terminals is usually constrained by a lack of detailed knowledge of the geometry. In most cases, the population attempts to evacuate via the way they entered, bypassing or ignoring emergency exits. In serious fires, the inability to locate emergency exits can lead to loss of life as in the Kings Cross Underground Station (1988) and Düsseldorf airport (1996) fi ...

Ship Evacuation Data and Scenarios (SAFEGUARD)

Start date: 01 Apr 2009, End date: 30 Nov 2012,

"The collection of human performance data in full-scale ship trials is vital for the calibration and validation of ship based evacuation models. The IMO Fire Protection Sub-Committee in their modification of MSC circ 1033 at the FP51 meeting in February 2007 invited member governments to provide, “…further information on additional scenarios for evacuation analysis and full scale data to be used ...

Frequency Agile Microwave Bonding System (FAMOBS)

Start date: 01 Nov 2008, End date: 31 Oct 2012,

The cost of packaging in microelectronics is around 30% of total production costs, but this is rising at an alarming rate due to the increasing consumer demand for smaller and smarter portable electronic devices. In micro-systems, the costs of packaging can be up to 80% of total production costs. Technological advances to reduce packaging costs are therefore of pivotal importance to maintain the c ...
