C123 - Methane oxidative conversion and hydroformylation to propylene
Propylene production is classified as the 4th largest emitter of greenhouse gases among the major chemical compounds. As the polypropylene market is huge and still growing, it is essential to find alternatives to current, energy-intensive production processes to meet the European environmental challenges. The C123 project’s main goal is the validation in a relevant environment of an efficient and selective transformation of current generally accessible, unexploited, cheap methane resources like stranded gas and biogas, to propylene in particular and C3 products in general.
UnWarp: Understanding warping corrugated board with machine learning
Warped cardboard is a major quality issue in the production of corrugated cardboard. It reduces the productivity in the converting units, causes reduced quality on the final product, and increases waste. In UnWarp we are using machine learning to understand when the cardboard becomes warped in and provide guidelines for minimising the warp.
The Digital Worker ERA will focus on exposure, physical and organisational factors for workers in the petroleum industry. We will build new knowledge on real-time exposure assessment of chemical, physiological strain and the human factors elements of using such assessments in-situ.
CleanTex = Reduction of energy consumption and climate gas emissions in industrial Textile laundry processes
SynchroPhasor-based Automatic Real-time Control (SPARC)
In a future sustainable power system there will be large shares of renewable generation, but also more changes in consumption and more cross-border transmission. Thus, the operation of the power system becomes more challenging, and calls for better methods and tools to operate the system.
The role of the safety representative in safety work
"The role of the safety representative in safety work" is a research project with the purpose to acquire new knowledge about the role of the safety representatives, and challenges and opportunities related to their participation in safety work in building and construction projects.
ImpreCCS - Impact of CO2 impurities and additives in CCS
High costs and risks remain significant barriers to large-scale implementation of carbon capture, transport and storage (CCS).
WASTE2ROAD - Biofuels from WASTE TO ROAD transport
The objective of WASTE2ROAD is to develop a new generation of cost-effective biofuels from a range of low-cost biogenic residues and waste fractions (contaminated wood, black liquor from pulp and paper industry, and municipal solid organic waste incl. food residues). Through optimisation of European waste recycling logistics and development of efficient low-risk conversion pathways, high overall carbon yields > 45% can be obtained while reducing greenhouse gases emissions > 80 %.
