Development of new ester-based oils and additives, as well as lubrication strategies for electric mobility. The 2E4GREEN project boosts a smart-lubrication strategy based on the selective activation of microencapsulated additives to reduce friction and wear, increase lubricant efficiency and extend service life. It does so by taking into account both the [...]



Solar generation of hydrogen from wastewater in economical and scalable photocatalytic panels. The HACDOS project aims to design, produce and validate low-cost solar photocatalytic panels for hydrogen production from wastewater. This process entails the degradation of aqueous pollutants, mostly organic, through solar photocatalytic reforming in anaerobic conditions with concomitant hydrogen production. [...]



FormPlate seeks to optimise the energy efficiency, cost and durability of metallic bipolar plates, a key component to guarantee the energy efficiency of proton exchange membrane (PEM) hydrogen fuel cells for application in the automotive sector. The technological innovation of the project is based on: New geometric plate designs by Finite [...]



PRISTINE in a nutshell Removing Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CECs) from water streams thanks to the PRISTINE Integrated Solution ABOUT THE PROJECT LIFE PRISTINE project aims to develop the PRISTINE Integrated Solution to remove Contaminants of Emerging Concern [...]



Development of a device for capturing atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) through a chemical reaction that converts carbon dioxide into carbonate with the objective to fight against climate change and reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. The CAPTACO2 project develops an innovative device that uses special polysulfone membranes which manage to obtain [...]



Development of benign cascade extractive biorefinery for converting agri-food side streams into high-value polyphenolic bioactives and functional fibres for pharma, cosmeceuticals, nutraceuticals and food products. The PHENOLEXA product has the objective to unlock the potential of polyphenols-rich agri-side streams (olive, grape shoots and leaves, chicory, and onion residues) to procure bioactive [...]



Improved bio-inocula and living mulching technologies for integrated management of horticultural crops. Nowadays, the use of bioinocula in commercial agriculture sector is hindered by several factors, among them insufficient knowledge of microbial ecology and formulation efficiency, as well as less farmers awareness of application technology and requirements under different cropping systems.
