European Green Week LTA
During the European Green Week an informative webinar will be hosted on the topic of Lighter Than Air (LTA) aviation. The goal is to inform policy makers, industry parties, researchers, and the public at large about the benefits of LTA technology, also to attain the objectives of the New European Green Deal, the EU Flight Path 2050 strategy, and the new more ambitious 55 % objective regarding the implementation of renewable energy. In fact, the technology is a key driver to decarbonize aviation activities, such as those related to cargo, accessing remote regions, carrying out urban surveillance, for example, replacing or complementing helicopters. The technology can be also be applied in emergency aid situations, which could appear because of the physical risks of climate change. In order to achieve the goals set out in the Paris Agreement and deliver on the EU Green Deal, the technology can greatly reduce the…
European Green Week SGP
During the European Green Week 2021 an informative webinar will be hosted by IMIEU on the topic of Salinity Gradient Power (SGP). This technology allows to generate power through mixing fresh and saline water. The goal of the event is to inform policy makers, industry partners, researchers, and the public at large about the benefits of generating power through SGP technology in order to achieve the objectives of the New European Green Deal and the new, more ambitious 55% objective regarding the implementation of renewable energy. IMIEU has initiated the INES platform and coordinates activities related to sharing knowledge, developing pilot projects on an international scale, and further strengthening scientific cooperation. Additionally, through international collaboration, the platform tackles the common challenges of the technology, such as fouling of membranes and enhancement of quality and capacity, pre-treatment issues, and upscaling of installations in general. Moreover, by mobilizing finance, the platform aims…
