Rss https://calafindustrial.com/en/b/blog/rss/1-rss Thu, 21 Nov 2019 01:47:17 +0100 <![CDATA[Ending of the VIDREBUIG Project]]> The VIDREBUIG project was benefited from a grant from the NUCLIS research and development support program of ACCIÓ, with funding from the European Regional Development Fund ERDF, within the framework of the 2014-2020 ERDF Program of Catalonia.CALAF INDUSTRIAL designed a new solution for the extraction of glass from municipal solid waste (MSW) based on the technological innovation of artificial vision equipment.

Said equipment automatically identifies and separates the glass from different treated waste streams in mixed waste treatment plants (fraction of the "grey container"), including flows with organic waste.
 
The company manufactured a prototype that operates stably under demanding industrial conditions and obtains glass extraction yields of more than 75% of the glass contained in the incoming flow.
 
During the development, CALAF INDUSTRIAL generalized the VIDREBUIG application to all types of waste capable of containing glass. In addition, the VIDREBUIG solution provided tools to increase the obtaining of other recyclable materials and refuse-derived fuels (RDF), as well as the reduction of reject materials generated in waste treatment plants.

<![CDATA[CONAMA 2018]]> OCU and CIRCE invite you to the presentation about the last advances of the CIRC-PACK project, on the 28th of November at CONAMA 2018 (National Environmental Congress). This European project, funded by the H2020 program, began in May 2017 and seeks to improve the value chain of plastic packaging in order to make it more sustainable, efficient, integrated and less dependent on fossil resources.

CIRC-PACK seeks to apply the principles of circular economy while developing more competitive products and new business models within the plastics sector. Among others, Calaf Industrial is one of the partners of this project.

We will talk about the innovation proposals that affect different containers such as coffee capsules, shampoo containers, detergent boxes or supermarket bags. We will present the results of the consumer survey carried out within the framework of the project and, finally, the attendees will have the opportunity to participate in discussion tables with representatives of different interest groups, which include companies, public administration and consumers, to know the concerns and identify possible barriers related to the proposed innovations.

Do not miss it!]]>

<![CDATA[VIDREBUIG: a new solution for recovering glass contained in urban waste.]]> CALAF INDUSTRIAL has designed a new solution for the extraction of glass from municipal solid waste (MSW) based on the technological innovation of artificial vision equipment.

Said equipment automatically identifies and separates the glass from different treated waste streams in mixed waste treatment plants (fraction of the "grey container"), including flows with organic waste.
 
The company has manufactured a prototype that operates stably under demanding industrial conditions and obtains glass extraction yields of more than 75% of the glass contained in the incoming flow.
 
The VIDREBUIG project has benefited from a grant from the NUCLIS research and development support program of ACCIÓ, with funding from the European Regional Development Fund ERDF, within the framework of the 2014-2020 ERDF Program of Catalonia.
 
During the following phases of development, CALAF INDUSTRIAL aims to generalize the VIDREBUIG application to all types of waste capable of containing glass. In addition, the VIDREBUIG solution provides tools to increase the obtaining of other recyclable materials and refuse-derived fuels (RDF), as well as the reduction of reject materials generated in waste treatment plants.
