  PROJECT DESCRIPTION The WAP-WIR project springs from the need to reduce the harmful effects of the manufacturing process of stone-like materials. The main project objective was the industrialization of a new process with a fully functional line, with improved environmental performance, such as the reduction of energy and water consumption as well as the advancement of working conditions thanks to the improvement of air quality. The new tested process involves the use of fine and...
  PROJECT DESCRIPTION The purpose of the BISCOL project was to reduce the environmental impact of the dyeing process in the textile industry. Each phase of the textile production process requires huge quantities of water, energy and chemical compounds (coloring agents, surfactants etc.) to obtain products which satisfy the consumer demand. The daily water consumption of a medium-sized company with a production of about 8.000 kg of fabric per day is about 1,6 million liters of...
  PROJECT DESCRIPTION The P.R.I.M.E project had the objective of defining an Integrated Management System of beached posidonia  residues capable of combining the environmental protection needs of the marine and coastal ecosystem with the management of biomass waste and their potential reuse in agriculture. The phenomenon of posidonia residues stranding has always been perceived as a problem that creates inconvenience for citizens, swimmers, managers of bathing...
  PROJECT DESCRIPTION Disposal of vehicles in the European Union generates, every year, between 7 and 8 million tons of waste, which must be properly managed. The management of this waste is regulated by the European Directive 2000/53/ EC, modified by the EU Directive 2017/2096, which sets the ambitious goal of recovery and reuse of 95% of the material emerging from the treatment of end-of-life vehicles (ELVs). Nowadays, the recycling of the materials that make up the car tanks (HDPE...
PROJECT DESCRIPTION Currently, there is an increasing worldwide need for products and services which are qualified in terms of environmental sustainability. This need can be satisfied if environmental impact considerations become an integral part of the product design process. Decisions made during the design phase of a product can have a significant effect on the product’s environmental impact. It is estimated that 80% percent of the environmental impact of a product is determined during...
