Research

Sustainable production is one of the key issues of the production technologies today. In addition to the modifications to the processing technologies that make production more environmentally friendly, intensive research is needed in valorisation and utilization of different by-products and wastes produced by the industry. In addition to industry, wastes are created by the communities and agriculture. The exploitation of these wastes is important, since the amount of the waste is continuously increasing and the treatment of this waste is not adequate even today. Finding the new ways to utilize industrial, communal and agricultural waste and by-products, and transferring those to valuable products, is the goal of NO-WASTE. We are especially aiming at identify and develop technologies that are potential to be used by the industry so that the reduction of the emissions and waste becomes also economically interesting and is not just due to legislation and reputation of the company.

 

The more specific goals of this exchange scheme are related to the different work packages, that concentrate on utilisation of agricultural residues (WP1 and WP2), production of valuable chemicals and energy from waste gas (WP3 and WP5) and utilization of mainly industrial residues (WP4 and WP6).

 

                      NO-WASTE frame of operation.

 

WP1 Hydrogen and synthesis gas production from waste

WP2 Valorisation of wastes from olive and argan production

WP3 Production of valuable chemicals from CO2 and organic gases

WP4 R&D on the HTC technology to valorize industrial by-products and wastes

WP5 Utilisation of methane originating from coal mining

WP6 Research on the HTC process: Product design
