We are subcontracted to OPERH2. The development of new technological solutions for industrial glass melting with partial use of leading and shortened use of control with a new lower melting glass furnace.
Software Platform for Multiscale Modelling of Reactive Materials and Processes (H2020-NMBP-TO-IND 2018, 2018-2022).
The ERC project entitled 'Towards Nanostructured Electrocatalysts with Superior Stability' or '123STABLE' will explore how the atomic structure of electrocatalyst nanoparticles changes when operating in low-temperature fuel cells and electrolysers.
The BEAR project will demonstrate a first-of-a-kind hybrid end-fired regenerative furnace with a more than 40% electrical melting share and throughput capacity of 170 tons of glass per day. The furnace will be implemented in Steklarna Hrastnik’s (SH) existing production site in Hrastnik, Slovenia.
TeBiCE - Territorial biorefineries for circular economy
Central Europe has a strong potential for economically utilising biomass from agriculture. It can be processed in biorefineries and transformed into a range of high value products. But this circular approach is still in its early stages and needs support. The TeBiCE project contributes by establishing sustainable value chains for biomass-based products. The partners also help with creating a market for these products by harmonising and improving regulatory frameworks across central Europe.
Designing and implementing a completely new methodology of electrocatalyst investigation, the so-called floating electrode cell approach. This methodology is expected to replace the existing wide-spread approach of catalyst evaluation, the so-called thin film rotating disc electrode (TF-RDE).
Photocatalytic Conversion of CO2: Over the last decade, European researches and industry enterprises have tried to find a solution to the problem of significant increases in the CO2 levels in environment, but current methods do not seem to have a high conversion rate of CO2 to biofuels.
The production of plastic materials has been increasing globally since the 1950s due to their wide range of applications in sectors like packaging, agriculture, construction, electronics etc. The annual global production of plastics is >380 million tonnes and this number is increasing by 4% every year.
