MycoKey aims to generate innovative and integrated solutions that will support stakeholders in effective and sustainable mycotoxin management along food and feed chains. The project will contribute to reduce mycotoxin contamination mainly in Europe and China, where frequent and severe mycotoxin contaminations occur in crops, and where international trade of commodities and contaminated batches are ...

Fibre Reinforced Cement (FRC) is a durable, fire and corrosion resistant material widely used in the construction industry. Coupled with the low cost of Portland cement, these properties make it ideally suited for applications such as roofing tiles and sidings. However the production of cement is associated with a large CO2 ‘footprint’, for each tonne of cement produced nearly one tonne of CO2 is ...

The overall objective of the STEELCOAT project is to reduce the use of toxic and hazardous compounds in, and extend the service life of, anticorrosion coatings for steel. The project aims to develop novel green, environmentally friendly, anticorrosion coatings with extended durability for steel protection. We will develop both high solids (HS) solvent-borne and water-borne anticorrosion maintenanc ...

"The project NANOPOLYTOX will evaluate the toxicological impact of nanomaterials included in polymer nanocomposites, highly used in various industrial sectors, during their life cycle. The toxicological profile will be correlated with the changes in the physical and chemical properties of the nanomaterials during the artificial aging/weathering process of the polymeric nanocomposites. Raw nanomate ...

Polyfire will develop and upscale techniques for processing halogen-free, fire-retardant nanocomposites and coatings based on unsaturated polyester resins and nanoclays. These materials will improve public safety and environmental impact by eliminating halogenated fire-retardants, which produce toxic combustion products. The ability of well-dispersed nanoparticles to enhance the fire-retardancy of ...

The purpose of this project is to identify and rate important forms of nanotechnology-related environmental pollution and health hazards that could result from activities involved in nano-structures throughout their life-cycle, and to suggest means that might reduce or eliminate these impacts. Besides the positive multipurpose nano-reinforcement in materials and expanded devices applications, lit ...

Motivation: Nanocomposites are emerging new materials that promise improved properties. Their applicability, however, is presently limited by the cost of manufacture and product reproducibility. Literature shows that on the bench scale, dramatic improvement in polyolefin mechanical properties can be obtained by intercalation and exfoliation of nanoparticles in the matrix. However, when materials p ...

"Fires destroy between 200K and 600K hectares of forest every year in the EU-15, accounting mainly for the Mediterranean countries (Greece, France, Italy, Portugal and Spain), and costing the European economy between 200 and 600 million Euro per year, and a number of live loss. Direct earth fire combat using hoses is a key method used for fighting fires in forestry environments, often used in conj ...
