EcoFan Air Filter, Taiwan

For past few years, air pollutant has been a big challenge for urban cities due to its direct effect on both human health and the environment. A novel device called EcoFan Air Filter is proposed to help diminish such a deadly crisis.

Treatment for wastewater sludge through bio-based processes

66% of the world’s population's (4.5 billion) wastewater are being collected and treated. The growing environmental awareness brings governments to set ambitious goals towards 100% population connected to decent wastewater treatment. It is vital to find a solution for treating the huge amounts of sludge from wastewater, making it less harmful to human health, whilst reducing the process’s energy-intensity.  Applied CleanTech’s SRS system PREVENT sludge rather than treat it, while reducing electricity usage & energy consumption and producing the RecylloseTM (recycled cellulose) that have a commercial value in numerous industries.

Ultra Low dust: small-scale biomass combustion technologies with ultra-low emissions

An ensemble of three innovative technologies covering the whole range of residential biomass heating appliances defines a new State of the art regarding ultra-low emission biomass combusting systems. These technologies are: ultra-low emission pellet and woodchip boilers; new stove technology based on optimised air staging and on automated control system; new electrostatic precipitator system (ESP) for old stoves and boilers.

CAPWA - CAPture WAter – A new source of water

The CAPWA project has developed a novel water capture technology capable of extracting water molecules from water containing gas streams emitted from fossil fuel power plants or papermaking plants.

Nano-structured TiON Photo-Catalytic Membranes for Water Treatment (NATIOMEM)

The NATIOMEM consortium has developed a new photocatalytic membrane for water and wastewater treatment. The coated membrane, when irradiated by sunlight, is capable of oxidizing micropollutants and inactivating microorganisms. The coated membrane could be integrated into a treatment system, for water treatment without chemical addition.

FRIT-REC

FRIT-REC project aims at eco-designing the manufacturing process of frits and enamels. During the production of frits and enamels, micronized fluoride lime (MFL) by-product can be generated. The project allows producing high-value MFL by-product that can be used as raw material in the production of new frits and enamels.

INNOWATECH

Biological processes offer the cheapest way to treat industrial wastewater in order to obtain a sustainable water cycle achievement. However, complex industrial wastewater can contain pollutants that are not easily broken down, increasing the cost of the treatment process.

DENUTRITOR

DENUTRITOR is a bio filtrating device which reduces biofouling in water systems by removing compounds that cause the growth of microbial populations. This biofilter has been developed within the AQUAFIT4USE  large-scale project. This pan-European initiative, funded under the 7th Framework Programme (FP7), a grant funding programme, aims to make industries more independent of the supply of water for their production processes. New technologies, tools and methods for sustainable water supply, use and discharge in the main water consuming industries, i.e. “water fit-for-(re)use”, have been developed.
