It is an ad-hoc software tool for evaluating alternative scenarios for the management of post-consumer packaging waste, enabling the selection of more sustainable waste management practices, in accordance with the current European policy principles. The tool is intended to be used directly by the local municipalities and waste management entities [...]
a material-based result of pa manufacturing process. In regard to eco-innovation, focusing especially on bionics, eco-design, product life-cycle and repair friendly design solutions.
A complete condition analysis of the existing building structure as well as building materials is a key factor in building modernisation and of great importance to create as much knowledge as possible in the early stage of the project. A checklist exemplifies different tasks and points out the responsibility of [...]
As the goal of the system is to lift heavy loads and remain safe during operation, the movements have been divided into a vertical (dangerous) and a horizontal (safe) one. Vertical forces are high. Therefore this movement was made “soft” by an anti gravity device given between robot and payload, [...]
Solution for 3D scene Interpretation (reconstruct me) - features a highly robust 3D object localization algorithm able to detect 3D CAD objects in a point cloud - can be used for real-time recognition as well as for high precision offline recognition - localization algorithm is robust against noise, occlusions, and [...]
- capable gripper, able to grip from light and compliant parts to heavy and delicate goods - flexible gripper consists on a hybrid solution between deformable end-effectors and grippers with a high number of DOFs - adaptability to different size goods, from under 100 mm to up to 1000 mm [...]
The ECOFATTING project expects to deliver the following results: - Innovative products, free from toxic substances, for use in the leather industry; - Substitution of chloroparaffins with eco-sustainable natural products in the fattening process; - Optimisation and application of new tanning formulations specific to the fattening phase, containing products derived [...]
By the developed biomechanical treatment we have been able to release 70 % more protein copmpared to the reference treatment without the enzymatic step.
Increase of ratio and quality of the Recycled Materials derived from post-consumer waste PE Film by a new designed and marketable Film Sorting Machine Type of solution:Product
The project expects to establish a self-sufficient, environmentally sound production plant with the following characteristics: 1. No more than 10% of the thermal energy generated using natural gas, equalling a gas consumption of 1 500 000 m3 (based on 2010 consumption); a reduction of equalling 21 500 household uses); 2. [...]
The tools for municipal waste management, the life cycle assessment and EMMI model, have been used to assess the environmental impacts of waste management and to target the factors that affect generation of waste more efficiently.
