Strategic Impact

Decision support system on optimized waste collection by vacuum technology with simultaneous production of bioenergy from wastes

Increase of the competitiveness of food producers and food equipment manufacturers:

The technological developments can be used by enterprises of all sizes. The developed simulation will help even small family-owned dairies to optimize their process chains. Company will gain flexibility with vacuum lines with regard to waste management when the food production is changed

Contribution to EC Strategy "Innovating for Sustainable Growth: A Bioeconomy for Europe":

different technological components that use renewable resources can be combined and controlled in a manner that industrial processes run without interruption and without affecting product qualities

Objectives included in the "Roadmap to a resource-efficient Europe" for 2020:

Greenhouse gas emissions will be reduced o by substitution of fossil fuels by renewable fuels o by waste streams within food production facilities that will be converted into valuable products (biogas, bioethanol,)
