LowEmission Research Centre
The LowEmission Research Centre will develop new technologies and concepts for offshore energy systems, energy efficiency and integration with renewable power production technologies for application on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS).
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 %.
Upwards - Understanding of the Physics of Wind Turbine and Rotor Dynamics through an Integrated Simulation Framework
The goal of UPWARDS project is to develop a simulation framework, which will incorporate a more complete description of the wind field, turbine, the support structure, and their interaction in order to better understand the physics of the entire system. The complex wind field will be calculated adding interactions from nearby turbines, waves, terrain, etc.
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).
CARMOF - New process for efficient CO2 capture by innovative adsorbents based on modified carbon nanotubes and MOF materials
The key objectives of the CARMOF project are to build a full demonstrator of a dry separation process for post-combustion CO2 capture and to design customized, high packed density & low pressure drop structures to be used in CO2 capture system.
4REFINERY - Scenarios for integration of bio-liquids in existing REFINERY processes
4REFINERY will develop and demonstrate the production of next generation biofuels from more efficient primary liquefaction routes integrated with upgraded downstream (hydro)refining processes to achieve overall carbon yields of >45%. The consortium will aim for successful deployment into existing refineries, including delivering a comprehensive toolbox for interfacing with existing refinery models.
Ambition – Advanced biofuel production with energy system integration
The ECRIA project AMBITION aims to develop a long-term joint European Community Research and Innovation Agenda on the integration of biofuels production and surplus grid electricity valorisation. AMBITION brings together eight partners from eight different countries into a European wide lasting research partnership, which is closely linked to EERA Bioenergy.
Printcr3dit - Process Intensification through Adaptable Catalytic Reactors made by 3D Printing
The main objective of the PRINTCR3DIT project is to implement a methodology to integrate 3D printing in the advanced design, modelling and manufacture of structured catalysts and catalytic reactors with significant cost reductions, access to new design strategies and faster lead times.
CO2stCap - Cutting Cost of CO2 Capture in Process Industry
The objective of this project is to apply partial CO2 capture to the most emitting industries to obtain more cost-effective solutions to reduce carbon emissions in steel & iron, cement, pulp & paper and metallurgical production of silicon for solar cells.
