EU Projects

Participating in Research Programmes of European Union

While Europe is at the leading edge of scientific research in many areas, it nevertheless finds it difficult to convert its scientific breakthroughs into innovative, competitive and sustainable products and services. Since the launch of the First Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development in 1984, the EU's institutions have been playing a driving role in organization of multidisciplinary trans-frontier cooperation.

DISIRE                                                              

Integrated Process Control based on Distributed In-Situ Sensors into Raw Material and Energy Feedstock                                                                                                  
PROJECT TITLE: The DISIRE project has been inspired by the real existing needs of multiple industrial sectors, including the world leading industrial partners in the non-ferrous, ferrous, chemical and steel industries that are highly connected and already affiliated with the SPIRE PPP and its objectives. The overall clear and measurable objective of the DISIRE project is to evolve the existing industrial processes by advancing the Sustainable Process Industry through an overall Resource and Energy efficiency by the technological breakthroughs and concepts of the DISIRE technological platform in the field of Industrial Process Control (IPC).

With the DISIRE project the properties of the raw materials or product flows will be dramatically integrated by their transformation in a unique inline measuring system that will extend the level of knowledge and awareness of the internal dynamics of the undergoing processes taking place during transformation or integration of raw materials in the next levels of production. In this approach, the Integrated Process Control system, instead of having external experts to tune the overall processes, based on the DISIRE concept will enable the self reconfiguration of all the production lines by the produced products itself.

Specific DISIRE Process Analyzer Technology (PAT) will be able to define quality and performance requirements, that for the first time in the process industry will be able to be directly applied on the physical properties of the developed products and thus enabling the overall online and product specific reconfiguration of the control system. In this way, the whole production can be fully integrated in a holistic approach from the raw materials to the end product, allowing the multiple process reconfigurations and an optimal operation based on the product's properties that can be generalized in a whole product production cycle being spanned in multiple cross-sectorial processes.

BIOMORE

 
PROJECT TITLE                       An Alternative Mining Concept - Raw Materials Commitment
ABSTRACT:            BioMOre describes a "New Mining Concept for Extracting Metals from Deep Ore Deposits using Biotechnology". The concept is to use hydrofracturing for stimulation and bioleaching for winning of ores. The final process will consist of a so-called doublet, which is two deviated and parallel wells. One well serves as injection well, the second one as production well which runs  pregnant solution with Cu, Co, Ni, Zn and other metals. The returning hot solution can be used as energy source as well. In order to avoid high costs for drilling from the surface and difficulties to get necessary permissions, the BioMOre approach is divided into two phases:
First phase: Research on the intended bioleaching process
Second phase: Pilot plant to demonstrate the applicability of the process in large scale including hydro-fracturing and access of the deposit from surface

LAGUNA - LBNO

 
PROJECT TITLE Design of a pan-European Infrastructure for Large Apparatus studying Grand Unifi cation, Neutrino Astrophysics and Long Baseline Neutrino Oscillations
ABSTRACT:         The Design Study LAGUNA-LBNO is assessing the feasibility of a giant underground observatory to study neutrinos. These messengers from cosmic sources (like the Sun) provide key information on what has occurred elsewhere in the Galaxy. The vision is of a much larger and more sensitive detector than those presently used, leading to new discoveries in particle and astroparticle physics. The observatory will also increase our understanding of neutrino properties and the terrestrial or galactic sources of neutrinos, and look for sources of radioactive proton decay.

PROMINE

 
PROJECT TITLE Nano-particle products from New mineral resources in Europe
ABSTRACT The objectives of the ProMine IP address the Commission's concerns over the annual 11 billion € trade deficit in metal and mineral imports. Europe has to enhance the efficiency of its overall production chain putting higher quality and added value products on the market. ProMine focuses on two parts of this chain, targeting extractive and end-user industries. Upstream, the first ever Pan-EU GIS based mineral resource and advanced modelling system for the extractive industry will be created, showing known and predicted, metallic and non-metallic mineral occurrences across the EU. Detailed 4D computer models will be produced for four metalliferous regions. Upstream work will also include demonstrating the reliability of new (Bio)technologies for an ecoefficient production of strategic metals, driven by the creation of on-site added value and the identification of specific needs of potential end-users. Downstream, a new strategy will be developed for the European extractive industry which looks not only at increasing production but also at delivering high value, tailored nano-products which will form the new raw materials for the manufacturing industry. ProMine research will focus on five nano-products, (Conductive metal (Cu, Ag, Au) fibres, rhenium and rhenium alloy powders, nano-silica, iron oxyhydroxysulphate and new nano-particle based coatings for printing paper), which will have a major impact on the economic viability of the extractive industry. They will be tested at bench scale, and a number selected for development to pilot scale where larger samples can be provided for characterisation and testing by end-user industries. It will include production, testing and evaluation of these materials, with economic evaluation, life cycle cost analysis, and environmental sustainability.

I2Mine

 
PROJECT TITLE: Innovative Technologies and Concepts for the Intelligent Deep Mine of the Future
ABSTRACT:         The I²Mine project is currently running and has just passed mid-term. As I²Mine only marks the start of a series of development activities aimed at realising the concept of an invisible, zero impact, deep mine, the I²Mine consortium is looking for a second period of research activities that will pave the way toward an envisaged pilot installation of technology developed in the frame of the project(s). The particular objectives of the phase 2 base on the achievements of the first, currently running phase and will be concretised towards the end of phase 1. The core of the project will be to develop breakthrough technologies for autonomous, highly selective, continuous mineral extraction processes and machinery including rock mechanics and ground control solutions, incorporating health, safety and environmental issues.

IRIS

 
PROJECT TITLE: Integrated European Industrial Risk Reduction System
ABSTRACT:         Current practices in risk assessment and management for industrial systems are characterized by its methodical diversity and fragmented approaches. In retrospect these risk and safety paradigms resulted from diverse industries driven and limited by available knowledge and technologies. A change based on industry driven R&D work is needed. At present the European Industry recognised their obligation to reconsider their risk and safety policies, having a more competitive industry and more risk informed and innovation accepting society in vision. Therefore the large collaborative project IRIS is proposed to identify, quantify and mitigate existing and emerging risks to create societal cost-benefits, to increase industrial safety and to reduce impact on human health and environment. The project is led and driven by the industry to consolidate and generate knowledge and technologies which enable the integration of new safety concepts related to technical, human, organizational and cultural aspects. The partnership represents over 1 million workers. The proposed project relates to strategic research topics defined by ETPIS and ECTP and is underpinning relevant EU policies on industrial safety

LAGUNA

 
PROJECT TITLE: Design of a pan-European Infrastructure for Large Apparatus studying Grand Unification and Neutrino Astrophysics
ABSTRACT:         Key questions in particle and astroparticle physics can be answered only by construction of new giant underground observatories to search for rare events and to study sources of terrestrial and extra-terrestrial neutrinos. In this context, the European Astroparticle Roadmap of 03/07, via ApPEC and ASPERA, states: "We recommend a new large European infrastructure, an international multi-purpose facility of 105-106 ton scale for improved studies of proton decay and low-energy neutrinos. Water-Cherenkov, Liq. Scintillator & Liq. Argon should be evaluated as a common design study together with the underground infrastructure and eventual detection of accelerator neutrino beams. This study should take into account worldwide efforts and converge by 2010..." Furthermore, the latest particle physics roadmap from CERN of 11/06 states:"A range of very important non-accelerator experiments takes place at the overlap of particle and astroparticle physics exploring otherwise inaccessible phenomena; Council will seek with ApPEC a coordinated strategy in these areas of mutual interest." Reacting to this, uniting scientists across Europe, we propose here a design study, LAGUNA, to produce by 2010 a full conceptual design sufficient to provide policy makers and funding agencies with enough information for a construction decision. Has Europe the technical and human capability to lead future underground science by hosting the next generation underground neutrino and rare event observatory? We aim to answer this question. Certainly construction will exceed the capacity of any single European nation - to compete with the US and Asia unification of our scattered efforts is essential. Failure to plan now risks not only that our picture of Nature's laws remain fundamentally incomplete but also that leadership in the field enjoyed by Europe for 20 years falls away. EU FP7 input now is timely and will have major strategic impact, guaranteeing coherence and stimulating national funding

PROJECT TITLE: Life cycle assessment of mining projects for waste minimisation and long term control of rehabilitated sites
ABSTRACT: The objective of the proposed project is to develop and validate a holistic approach to minimise the full life-cycle impacts of mining taking into account all the elements of the industrial mining and mineral processing system including waste disposal and remediation. Despite the attempts of a number of learned societies and some European initiatives towards the development of a comprehensive LCA methodology, there has not yet been the development of holistic life cycle assessment system for the extractive industries, accounting for all stages of the mining related activities, from exploration and development of a mineral deposit; to mining, processing of the ore, production of the concentrate; waste disposal, remediation; environmental monitoring, decommissioning and long term control and monitoring of the impacts of the mining related activities.

CLOTADAM

 
PROJECT TITLE: The treatment of minewaste to achieve cost effective engineered closure of tailings dams
ABSTRACT:         Mining has been a principal industry within Europe for thousands of years and continues to provide growth potential and associated socio-economic benefits. The safe and environmentally storage of the process wastes in the tailings facility (TSF) is an important cost for most mining projects, both during operation and post closure. Recent EU Landfill Driective COM(93)275 are currently being adopted by regulators and potentially, TSF will represent a high proportion of capital expenditure at start up and significant liability post closure. In the proposed study the aim is to develop technologies that can be incorporated into the operational phase to achieve cost effective tailings closure systems. In some cases the closure of a TSF may represent more than 50% of the overall closure cost. It is expected that the employment of cost effective closure technologies may reduce costs by at least 15%. The potential cost savings has been estimated at 1.2 billion Euros in the EU region
