CETIM colabora con el proyecto “Future: Fast Forward” para convertir a España en un hub del vehículo eléctrico en Europa

Led by the Volkswagen Group and SEAT S.A., the project is made up of 62 companies, 61% of them SMEs, from 11 autonomous communities.

It’s the largest business grouping in the history of the automotive industry in Spain.

CETIM and its partner ENSO INNOVATION will analyze different technologies for the recovery of high-value metals from used automotive components within the framework of one of the primary projects of PERTE VEC F3, called RELOAD.

The aim of this research, led from Galicia, is to reduce dependence on imports of high-value materials and to promote a sustainable, circular industrial model with a smaller environmental footprint.

The LIGNOPRIZED and REDEFINE projects, both focused on obtaining high added value products from lignin, have been successfully completed.

LIGNOPRIZED has successfully introduced modified lignin into applications as diverse as concrete additives, pipes or textile additives, improving their conventional characteristics.

REDEFINE has succeeded in encapsulating fragrances and developing bio-surfactants with degreasing properties.

La biosolución LIFE REFOREST alcanza hasta el 80% de eficacia para reducir la erosión de suelos quemados por incendios

As it is a prefabricated system, it can be implemented more quickly than conventional systems.

Based on the three pilots installed in southern Galicia and central Portugal, a complete transferability and replicability plan has been developed for other European areas.

These conclusions were presented today during the European conference on forestry strategy organised by CETIM to close four years of R&D&I research applied in the framework of LIFE REFOREST.

CETIM Technological Centre has developed a dozen industrial applications from wood by-products for elements as varied as foam for car seats, cleaning products or Li-ion batteries.

In direct collaboration with fifty companies, it has been offering advanced solutions in circular economy for a decade through biorefinery models and R&D&i from lignin, cellulose or hemicellulose, generating more than €40M of investment.

The “green asphalt” devised by CETIM, additive with nanocellulose, won last November the 1st Innovative Materials Contest of the GAIN (Galician Innovation Agency) of the Xunta de Galicia.

REWAISE is a major initiative of 4 European Water Utilities to implement technological innovations and new water governance methods.

After its first year, the project has deployed its first pilots to tackle key issues in improving water management efficiency.

Organised as Living Labs across Europe, each site develops specific solutions that are then implemented under a common methodology.

CETIM is valorising successfully wine wastes, especially pomace wastes, by means of their biotransformation into bioplastics, specifically, the so-called polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs).

These degradable biopolymers are being obtained through the application of microorganisms that convert the organic matter of the waste into volatile fatty acids (VFAs) in a first stage and PHAs accumulating bacteria in the following two stages of enrichment and accumulation.

The project, called ECLIPSE and clearly aligned with the objectives of circular economy, will contribute to make possible the use of secondary raw materials from the recycling of complex polymeric waste, thus reducing the use of natural resources and the pollution generated by waste.

The consortium that will carry out the research is also made up of seven other companies covering the entire plastics recycling value chain (ACTECO, PICVISA, REPSOL, CELLMAT TECHNOLOGIES, GRUPO COPO, SYNTHESIA and SEAT) and the coordination of the project office will be carried out by CETIM Technological Centre.

The Science and Innovation Missions program, for which the Center for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI) is responsible, is part of the State R&D&I Plan approved in 2021 and aims to promote projects led by companies that develop relevant research to find solutions to the main cross-cutting and strategic challenges of Spanish society.

A total of 111 projects were submitted to this second call for proposals, of which 37 were approved. The project led by Técnicas Reunidas was the third best evaluated project.

Arranca el proyecto de investigación industrial ZEPPELIN que, liderado por AQUALIA con CETIM Centro Tecnológico como coordinador de la oficina técnica, buscará soluciones tecnológicas innovadoras, eficientes y circulares de producción y almacenamiento de hidrógeno verde.

The industrial research project ZEPPELIN, led by AQUALIA with CETIM Technolgical Centre as technical office coordinator, will seek innovative, efficient and circular technological solutions for the green hydrogen production and storage.

The ZEPPELIN consortium is formed by 7 other leading companies that cover the entire hydrogen value chain: NATURGY, NORVENTO, PERSEO, REDEXIS, REGANOSA, TECNICAS REUNIDAS and REPSOL.

ZEPPELIN is financed by the Centre for Technological and Industrial Development (CDTI), through the CDTI Missions program, aimed at financing large strategic business R&D initiatives that propose solutions to cross-cutting and strategic challenges for Spanish society.
