Project Research

FP7 Resource Efficiency Cluster

The Resource Efficiency Cluster is a cooperation between several FP7 projects. All of them work on eco-innovative technologies, processes, services and products, some of them are additionally oriented towards natural resources management. 

The idea behind the cooperation within the cluster is to increase the impact of dissemination activities that target the same stakeholders. Due to their similar areas of work, the projects will hold joint review meetings and establish a stable exchange of information amongst each other. 

Fuel From Waste

Using agricultural waste, mainly residues from olive farming and olive oil production, in order to generate ready-to-use-fuels for oil manufacturing processes and olive farming transportation.



Demonstration of promising technologies to address emerging pollutants in water and waste water.



Photovoltaics (PV), which is the production of electricity from light, is one of the most environmentally friendly methods of electricity generation.



ZEro-imPact innovative tecHnologY in foRest plant production

The Zephyr project aims to introduce an innovative technology built on pre-cultivation of forest regeneration materials in a zero-impact and cost-friendly production unit.


Nanotechnological Application in WAter DESalination

The objective of the NAWADES project is the development of a membrane system for seawater desalination that does not suffer from organic fouling and inorganic scaling.



The project will use food waste for feed production at low cost, low energy consumption and maximal valorization.



The ECOWAMA project proposes a new eco-efficient closed cycle management model for the treatment of effluents of the metal and plastic surface processing industry.



The aim of the project is the development of a prototype of a water treatment system which is more efficient in terms of wastewater treatment and self-sustaining in terms of energy needs.
