 ONGOING 
Current technological demands are increasingly stretching the properties of advanced materials to expand their applications to more severe or extreme conditions, whilst simultaneously seeking cost-effective production processes and final products. The aim of this project is to demonstrate the influence of different surface enhancing and modification techniques on CF-based materials for high value ...

 ONGOING 
Background Lightweight vehicles have a strategic role to play in EU environmental policy. Lightweight aluminium alloys have widely started to be adopted, the current frontier for light components. Massive and complex-shaped components are produced by cast aluminium, which competes with the heavier cast iron and preferable magnesium alloys, which though mu ...

There is a need to find solutions to replace Critical Raw Materials (CRMs) such as Chromium, Nickel, Molybdenium and Vanadium in high volume end consumer products. Steels and superalloys with considerable amounts of these CRMs are widely used in many industrial applications, particularly under extreme conditions where corrosion and wear resistance are needed. It is generally accepted, that interme ...

a LOW environmental impact BRAke SYStem (LOWBRASYS)

Start date: 01 Sep 2015, End date: 31 Aug 2018,

Primary particulate matter (PM) consists of chemical components suspended in the atmosphere as aerosols, e.g. as a result of exhaust gaseous and friction processes (e.g. braking). Such particles may potentially contribute to smog events in urban areas and might be responsible of negative effects on the environment (e.g. acid rain acidification, toxic effects on plants and animals) and health (e.g. ...

Efficient Urban LIght VEhicles (EU-LIVE)

Start date: 01 Jun 2015, End date: 31 May 2018,

"EU-LIVE will provide a comprehensive European solution for the next generation of electrified, cost- and energy-efficient light urban vehicles to cope with the challenges of future personal urban mobility, based on both user needs and acceptance.EU-LIVE will establish the "EU-LIVE modular platform", a systematic approach for efficiently designing, developing and building a wide range of L-categor ...

NEWSPEC aims at the production of Carbon Fibres (CFs) through very promising low-cost sustainable polyethylene (PE) precursors. PE can be derived from three independent sources: bio-ethanol, synthetic oil and recycled plastics. A main attribute of this project is the use of an available pilot scale facility (HPFC) that allows design and optimization of continuous CF processing and, at a later date ...

50% Reduction of Brake Wear Particulate Matter (REBRAKE)

Start date: 01 Mar 2013, End date: 28 Feb 2017,

"Particulates, also known under the name of particulate matter (PM), are fine particles or soot. Particulate matter is frequently classified according to its size, i.e. PM10, PM2.5 and PM0.1 for particulates with an aerodynamic diameter D smaller than, respectively, 10 µm, 2.5 µm and 0.1 µm. PM represent an hazard for human health. Very coarse particles (D > 10 µm) are generally filtered in the no ...
