STRIVE 116 - Denise Rooney, Orla Power, Catherine Fox, Carmel Breslin, Bernadette Alcock Earley , December 2013
This project involved a laboratory scale study into improving the properties of commercial water filtration membranes for removal of metal ions such as copper and chromium from water, forming ion selective smart membranes and the reduction of protein fouling.
STRIVE 114 - Monika ?ygowska, Vladimir Ogurtsov, Eric Moore, Grégoire Herzog, December 2013
The aim of this EPA funded project was to develop cost effective microfluidic platforms for enzymatic biofuel cells.
STRIVE 113 - Angela Boyce & Gary Walsh, December 2013
The focus of this project was to develop an alternative greener pretreatment method, based on the use of thermoacidophilic enzymes, which aims to improve the efficiency of the pretreatment step and overcome many of the technical, economical, environmental and health & safety related disadvantages associated with current practice.
STRIVE 119 - Nick Gathergood, December 2013
This report details our progress towards the development of safer, less toxic and biodegradable chemicals called acid catalysts.
STRIVE 111 - Dr Mary Pryce, Prof. Han Vos, Jennifer Manton, Suraj Soman, Avishek Paul, Prof. Sven Rau, December 2013
The project has demonstrated the first step towards the development of a green approach to CO2 reduction and recycling, and delivers a technology where hydrogen can be produced from water at room temperature.
This summary report highlights the achievments of this project, which demonstrated the development of a technology for the conversion of post-consumer (farm) plastic into a biodegradable plastic.
This project looks at upcycling waste plastic from Irish farms to a more valuable biodegradable form of plastic.
STRIVE Report 101: Kieran Nolan, Alexander Yavorskyy, Michael Oelgemöller, Oksana Shvydkiv, July 2013
Currently, for every 1kg of active pharmaceutical product produced between 25 and 100kg of waste is generated. This project looks at new technologies that reduce water and energy requirements, offering cost savings and improved product yield, with less waste gnerated.
