demonstration project Biopolymer packaging was initiated by
KIEM to explore the implementation of the latest biopoly-mers
in the packaging industry.
Partners: Campina Melkunie, Elopak, KLM Cityhopper, Basic,Fleurmerc,
Mercurius, Heutink , EasyFood, Borden, Elco Trade.
project initiated by KIEM on natural fibres reinforced plastics
for lightweight and affordable components for the automotive
industry. The weight reduction can be 15 - 40%.
Partners: Wageningen University, Ceres, Cintec foundation, ECN
University of Delft and Wientjes.
innovations together with the Zwartz BV and the Delft University
are developing a new biocomposite sheet for sandwich constructions
and 3D shapes. A natural fabric reinforced thermoplastic suitable
for mass production.
innovations together with the Prince fibre Tech BV, DLR Braunsschweig
(D) Sachsenleinen (D) Dynea Austria (A) are developing a new
natural fibre reinforced plastic profile for high performance
building constructions. made with the pultrusion process
project was focused on reducing the eco impact of the conditioning,
the packa-ging and distribution (cooling) of fresh food. The
waste of fresh food in the distribution chain can be 30%. Partners:
Campina Melkunie, Laurus supermarket group, Groko, KEMA Institute
and the University of Delft.
cooperative project by Wavin KLS, Kiwa, Wageningen University,
KIEM and Sphinx. In this project research has been executed
to find solutions for a radical reduction of the water use in
households. Developed systems can save more than 50% water and
can save50% energy.
Inteco, J.E. Storkair and University of Eindhoven have done
a cooperative project on a integral heating and cooling system
for renovation and new building projects. Energy demand of households
can be halved with a new integrated concept for climate control.
||Biotrigen is a heat
pump with integrated power generation for generate electricity
heat and also cold on biofuel. KIEM, Global Cooling and ECN
has done studies to the costs, energy and CO2 savings for homes.
Biotrigen can save 100% natural gas, 50% in cost and 82% on
