    SILIFE project

    October 24, 2019

    In the SILICOAT project, carried out in the period 2011 to 2014, a coating technology was developed that enables addition of a reagent during preparation of the ceramic compositions, which anchored itself to the quartz particle surface, inhibiting or reducing RCS toxicity. Applied to traditional ceramic processes, this technology proved to be technically and economically feasible for wet processes.

  • REMADYL, a project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Framework Program, aims at the removal of legacy substances from polyvinylchloride (PVC) via a continuous and sustainable extrusion process, providing a means for circular economy/use of PVC material. The project team includes 15 European partners, bringing together a set of multidisciplinary skills and expertise to jointly pursue the set project goal. One of the participants is Fraunhofer, namely Fraunhofer ICT and Fraunhofer ITEM. Fraunhofer ITEM will be contributing to the process by (process-accompanied) contaminant assessment and the compilation of a best-practice guide with focus on occupational health and safety during handling of the final product and by-products.
