Knowledge development and innovative proposals for improving the competitiveness of companies through the environment, all directed toward three technological directions: water, energy-from-waste and eco-design.
Following the actions carried out, the results obtained were:
- The current eco-efficient production situation was analysed in each of the three arms of the project (water: types of industrial estates in the Region of Valencia with respect to waste water, waste water disposal and current alternatives for recycling; energy-from-waste: situation of facilities for treating urban residues, not dangerous residues and some inert residues of the Region of Valencia with respect to their level of eco-efficiency; eco-design: identification of processes, products and services with the highest potential and need for environmental improvement, evaluating the degree of application of eco-design in them).
- Improvements with respect to the current situation were identified, proposed, developed and applied through alternatives or easy-to-transfer technologies (methodology of design for recycling waste water, catalogue of measures for energy efficiency improvement, eco-design software).
