Agrimax  Developing and demonstrating the production of multiple, high-value products from crop and food-processing waste. Around one-third of all food produced each year is wasted. Agrimax will build two pilot biorefineries where leftovers from tomato, cereal, potato and olive will be converted into valuable products for the packaging, food and farming sectors.        In addition, [...]

Agrocycle Sustainable techno-economic solutions for the agricultural value chain Continuing population and consumption growth are driving global food demand, with agricultural activity increasing to keep pace. Europe has a major agricultural waste problem, generating some 700 million tonnes of waste annually. There is an urgent need and huge opportunity to address the efficient use of [...]

Dafia Bio-macromolecules from municipal solid bio-waste fractions and fish waste for high added value applications Municipal solids waste (MSW) are collected by municipalities and represents more than 500 kg/capita (EU-27 average), 300 million tonnes overall every year in the EU-32. Currently, approximately 50% of this volume is landfilled. More than 1.3 million tonnes of Marine [...]

Decoat Recycling of coated and painted textile and plastic materials The main goal of DECOAT is to enable circular use of textiles and plastic parts with (multilayer) ‘coatings’, which are typically not recyclable yet. These ‘coatings’ comprise functional and performance coatings and paints as well as adhesion layers. Therefore, novel triggerable smart polymer material systems [...]

Ecobulk Circular Process for Eco-Designed Bulky Products and Internal Car Parts ECOBULK through a large scale demonstration effort will contribute to “closing the loop” of composite products in the automotive, furniture and building sectors by promoting greater re-use, upgrade, refurbishment and recycling of products, parts, and materials. It will bring opportunities for both the environment [...]

 Intensified-by-Design (IbD) Intensified by Design platform for the intensification of processes involving solids handling A holistic platform for facilitating Process Intensification design and optimization in solid processes: Cement, ceramics, chemicals, engineering, minerals and ores, non-ferrous metals, steel and water represent the 20% of the total European manufacturing industry with over 450,000 enterprises. There is a [...]

Laser4Surf Laser for mass production of functionalised metallic surfaces Laser4Surf stands for laser for mass production of functionalised metallic surfaces. It is an EU-funded research project aiming to remove technical and economic barriers that prevent the use of laser technologies for obtaining functionalized metallic surfaces with textures ~1μm or less on mass production. This objective [...]

LightMe An Open Innovation Ecosystem for upscaling production processes of lightweight metal alloys composites LightMe project targets on the setting up of a self-sustainable open innovation ecosystem for the upscaling of industrial processes concerning lightweight metal alloys (aluminium, magnesium and titanium) composites. It is evident that although the last two decades a high number of [...]

Miracle Mid-infrared arthroscopy innovative imaging system for real-time clinical in-depth examination and diagnosis of degenerative joint disease MIRACLE will push towards commercialisation the first mid-infrared (MIR) arthroscopy probe for an in-depth evaluation of articular cartilage enabling early diagnosis of degenerative joint diseases such as osteoarthritis (OA). The proposed device is intended for use during arthroscopy, [...]
