The Institute for Sustainable Process Technology believes that radical sustainable processing can only be achieved when research and implementation is done in cooperation, whereby the contribution is maximized and the risks are minimized.
To efficiently guide our ambition all collaborations in the ISPT network are brought together in clusters or single projects:
A cluster is an execution form for a set of innovation activities carried out in an open consortium, with an open end, where activities are initiated and ended in consultation with all participants, and where all results are shared. Partners jointly work on realizing roadmap projects. Participation in such a roadmap project is based on a fee that represents the needs and competences of the cluster partners.
We are working with our partners in the following clusters:
- Deep Eutectic Solvents
- Drying and Dewatering
- Efficient Liquid Separation
- Industry 4.0
- Mild Fractionation for Food
- Social Acceptance
- System Integration
- Utilities and Optimal Use of Heat
- Water Processing
A single project is set up if there is a well defined activity aimed at delivering a clearly described deliverable in a limited time-span and with fixed resources. Participation in a single project is based on a fee that is determined by the desired outcome and deliverables of the project. A project can also be a technology demonstration project.
