Applicability of the use of chemical markers for the discrimination of black coloured plastics during the recycling of children’s products- TRACER
A research project in which chemicals, called markers, are used in the development of new plastic formulations. Simultaneously, a tailor-made vision system is being developed to detect and read the presence of these markers in the sorting plant and, consequently, to facilitate their sorting for the recycling of black plastics.View more
Chemical markers to improve traceability of children’s products as a solution to anti-counterfeiting – TRACE4FAKE
Is it possible to manufacture children's products using anti-counterfeiting materials, and is it possible to do so while avoiding any toxicological risk to the user?
The implementation of chemical markers in the materials used for the manufacture of the children's product allows a product to be traced quickly and economically, through photoluminescent properties, among others, which can be modulated according to the specific needs of each company and/or product.
Through the INCLUJOB project, AIJU and four organizations from Austria, Greece and Italy, are going to work togehter to tackle the large employment gap that exists among people with intellectual disabilities; promoting the employability of this group through the development of training material for the three main actors involved: support entities for people with intellectual disabilities, the business sector and the group of people with intellectual disabilities itself.View more
Development of high-frequency communications devices using advanced additive manufacturing and coating technologies – CAFTAM
Current radio communication systems are dealing with the progressive saturation of the electromagnetic spectrum which, together with increasing bandwidth requirements (transmission speeds), is forcing systems to migrate to higher frequency bands.View more
The platform will allow the incorporation of clinical data from patients affected by primary brain tumors, and will also implement Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based algorithms for their analysis.View more
A study is carried out to find new technological solutions for coating plastic surfaces with a metallic material, avoiding the use of dangerous chemical substancesView more
The European Plastics Strategy, by means of the Green Deal & Circular Economy Action Plan 2.0, addresses the need for new methods to reliably calculate, verify and report the recycled content in products, thus boosting the increase of recycled content in everyday products against the use of virgin materials.View more
Plastic economy has been based from its start in linear managing producing overwhelming amounts of waste. This compromises the sustainability of human activities and, therefore, threatens our wellbeing degrading our ecosystems.
Setting circular business models requires increasing and adapting the Knowledge and awareness of the companies, as well as skills boosting of both, former and new entrants to the economic system.
Optimization of functional biomaterials to support the access to the market of more sustainable consumer products in the Valencian Community: toy, childcare, household packaging and commercial furniture sectors – BioFCase II
The implementation of more sustainable feedstock in plastic products manufacturing companies is a current requirement in the European Union (EU) scope.
The manufacturing enterprises, thus, face themselves into a significant challenge, given that the search for more sustainable and functional plastic materials that meet the physical-chemical properties required by the product means to invest a substantial time in non-productive tasks.
The objective of this research line is to be able to offer companies new opportunities for the use of additive manufacturing (AM) technologies, through the development and application of new materials for AM.View more
