Innovation: Development Of New Agrotextiles From Renewable Resources And With A Tailored Biodegradability

Last update: 28.08.2013
Ready to use
- Different ranges of biopolymer formulations were developed and evaluated for their processability in textile extrusion processes. Especially the PLA-based formulations show a good processability and different type of textile materials: staple fibre, monofilament, tapes and multifilament are produced with acceptable mechanical properties, creating opportunities for further industrial processing. Also [...]

Innovation: Validation Of An Environmentally Friendly System, Combining Co2 Capture And Biofuel Production Based On Algae Culture For Industrial Exhaust Application

Last update: 10.08.2013
Pre-Demo
The expected outcome is the pilot scale validation of an innovative environment friendly CO2 capture system combined with a biofuel production process. This system will: - Reduce CO2 emissions by capturing CO2 using micro-algae; - Produce biofuel from the algae to fuel the industrial furnaces and reduce fossil energy consumption; [...]

Innovation: Stimulating Obtaining Results In Communities In Relation To Energy-Efficiency And Renewables

Last update: 30.07.2013
Ready to use
The two demo neighborhoods have reached their goals despite the headwind market conditions. Some changes in the plans have however been necessary. In Apeldoorn Zuidbroek, the peak boilers are now fired by woodchips, not by the originally planned bio-oil. In Hillerød, some of the support for new-build houses have been [...]
