Waste to energy
comprises various methods such as gasification (fermentation) incineration. Does NOT include recycling or cradle-to-cradle concepts as those can be found in the MATERIAL-section
The primary goal of the project LIFE Olèico + has been to raise the awareness among the olive industry operators of the environmental concern caused by the careless disposal of the olive waste, inducing them to adopt economic and environmental sustainable technologies. Although the project did not foreseen a direct [...]
The aim of the WW-SIP project is to redefine the urban wastewater treatment plant (UWWTP) by transforming it into an integrated platform for sustainable and profitable sewage refinement. The project will create an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable wastewater refinement platform (WW-SIP) by integrating innovative technologies into the infrastructures and [...]
The HAMBURG WATER Cycle will be carried out for the first time in a larger scale in the Jenfelder Au. There, the HWC will be implemented in approximately 610 residential units, making the development of a neighborhood with climate-neutral residences with sustainable water drainage possible. The project is unique in [...]
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; [...]
Expected results: The main anticipated project results relate to validation of the new technology on a commercial-scale and raising awareness about the benefits of such technology among targeted stakeholders. More specifically the project will: 1. Create and launch a Prototype of Demonstration Installation; 2. Produce an Environmental Impact Statement, taking [...]
An innovative technology for re-using carbon dioxide by capturing the product from the flue gasses of the Twence Waste-To-Energy (WTE) plant and using it for the production of sodium bicarbonate as a result of the alkaline reaction with soda.
The overall objective of the project is to develop a new replicable methodological approach for designing, constructing and operating very low energy new buildings. This methodology will be validated and enriched by the experience gathered in several demonstration buildings to be constructed in 5 European countries. The variety of typologies [...]
Outomes not ready yet, processing just started. In summer 2014 results will be developed.
The project will work to engage households in limiting food waste and favouring the practice of collective or individual composting of food and green waste in three partner urban areas. It will be implemented at full scale in Rennes Metropole (France) and Lipor (Portugal), and at pilot scale in Brno [...]
