MAGNIFICENT-Additively manufactured Magnetic High Entropy Alloys for Renewable Electricity
The aim ogf the project is to produce magnetic materials with superior and long-lasting magnetic properties based on high entropy alloys (HEA), using machine learning and additive manufacturing for materials selection and synthesis as well as high throughput materials characterisation at the micro and nano level.
Alternative Railway Electrification in Norway
As many European countries, Norway has still a significant length of non-electrified railways. New technologies like hydrogen fuel cells and batteries can be a better option than expensive catenary lines.
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 %.
ANSWER - New thermoelectric ANtimonides and Silicides With EntRopy stabilization
The goal of ANSWER is to develop thermoelectric materials with impact on global energy management by stabilizing with entropy new covalent compounds.
SUPER PV - CoSt redUction and enhanced PERformance of PV systems
SUPER PV is pursuing an ambitious bus realistic goal for innovative PV system cost reduction and consequently significant LCOE reduction (26%-37%) by adopting hybrid approach combining technological innovations and Data Management methods along the PV value chain.
PULP&FUEL – Pulp and Paper Industry Wastes to Fuel
The transport sector is dominated by fossil fuels, and alternative fuels represent currently only 5% of fuel consumption in EU. The EU objective for the share of renewable energy in the transport sector is 10% in 2020. To achieve this goal, new advanced biofuels are needed and must be produced from alternative feedstocks. The goal of the PULP&FUEL EU project is to develop a simple and robust fuel synthesis process taking advantage of the synergy between super critical water gasification (wet gasification) and fixed bed gasification (dry gasification).
eForFuel - Fuels from electricity: de novo metabolic conversion of electrochemically produced formate into hydrocarbons
For biorefined fuels to fully replace fossil carbons, we must identify feedstock sources which are essentially unlimited in capacity and scalability and are independent of agriculture and forestry land use. Here, we propose to use electricity – preferably produced from renewable sources and at off pick hours – as the sole energy source for microbial growth and the conversion of CO2 into fuels.
REFHYNE - Clean Refinery Hydrogen for Europe
The REFHYNE project will install and operate the world’s largest hydrogen electrolyser at the Shell Rhineland Refinery in Wesseling, Germany. The REFHYNE project will investigate feasibility for introduction in other industry plants, as well as potentially being a step towards the future of refining and determine the possible technical, economic & environmental benefits of the technology. The aim is to supply Clean Refinery Hydrogen for Europe.
