Public Projects

Conenor actively participates in preparation and execution of public funded R&D projects aiming to improve material recovery and their efficient use and recycling by the development and use of composite extrusions.

Recent active public R&D projects :

Project OSIRYS - with Conenor extruded fire proof (B2,d0,s2) biobased composite panels - selected as Success Story         read news here at EU Commission web pages

  • EU/Horizon 2020 project HISER (2015-2019); 

    • Holistic Innovative Solutions for an Efficient Recycling and Recovery of Valuable Raw Materials from Complex Construction and Demolition Waste

    • The main goal of HISER project is to develop and demonstrate novel cost-effective technological and non-technological holistic solutions for a higher recovery of raw materials from ever more complex construction and demolition waste (C&DW), by considering circular economy approaches throughout the building value chain (from the End-of-Life Buildings to new Buildings).

    • The first demonstration was constructed in November 2017 for the Finnish State Forestry Department Metsähallitus; a shed for firewood - the very first construction ever built in Finland completely from WPCs !      see more fotos

    • The second demonstration in spring 2018 will be a WPC-stall for three horses at Rautalammin Ratsastuskeskus

  • Finland/SHOK project ARVI by Cleen (2014-2017),  Conenor acting as sub-contractor

    • click http://www.cleen.fi/en/arvi

    • The research in ARVI program focuses on systemic assessment of material recovery and recycling opportunities. Attention is very much laid on studying recycling of such materials and elements. Detailed knowhow is created on material compositions and structures, and processing technologies are studied to modify the materials for reuse purposes or to capture valuable components found in very small amounts in complex matrixes. In addition, different types of modelling and assessment methodologies for chemical, process, LCA, environmental footprint and techno-economical calculations are combined to perform sopficated overall analyses of material value chains.

    • The objective of the ARVI (Material Value Chains) research program is to build a solid and broad competence background, i.e., an innovation platform, based on which the Finnish material recovery industry may extend their businesses and improve competitive positioning in the global markets. The program creates data, assessment tools and concepts for the value chain management and processing of materials to enable for the Finnish companies to expand and deepen their knowhow and to find out new technologies, process solutions and services as well as new ways to combine them to meet the requirements of future markets. 

  • EU/Horizon 2020 project ECOBULK (2017-2021)

    • click http://ecobulk.eu/public/ecobulk-project

    • Newsletter #1 Newsletter #2

    • ECOBULK through a large scale demonstration effort will contribute to “closing the loop” of composite products in the automotive, furniture and building sectors by promoting greater re-use, upgrade, refurbishment and recycle of products,parts, and materials.

    • The methodology will embrace and focus on large scale demonstration activities in 7 countries and more than 15 demonstrators to address the key components of the circular economy solutions

    • Conenor is acting as leader for work package WP4 for all demonstration activities and in its own developments will focus in composite materials, formulations in agglomeration technique and extrusions in various single- and multilayer product structures and especially demonstrating new techniques in recycling thermoset FRP-waste reinforced thermoplastic materials from wind turbine blades

   Among other several demonstrations in Europe, the Finnish Ecobulk furniture and building demonstrations for outdoor benches, shelters and cabins will take place at     KymiRing MOTO GP   racing track under construction at Kausala to start at 2020
