The 0e-MISION project conceives the environment problem associated with polluting emissions as the great global challenge of the future. This project outlines a more sustainable energy future, with combustion energy installations without chimneys, not even below the established emission limits, that are capable of producing electrical and thermal energy at any scale, in a clena, safe, efficient way and more cheap.
Research in these solutions includes new concepts of combustion equipment, which allow greater control of the process and an energy use of new fuel resources, and new concepts of emissions purification (emissions biofilter) and optimal use of CO2 to produce plant materials through intensive greenhouse cultivation, through hydroponics.
All the research included in the scope of 0e-MISION will make it possible to conceive a new concept of energy generation by combustion without emissions, at a low cost and with a significantly lower carbon footprint associated with current systems. In addition, it should also be noted that the research promoted by 0e-MISION will generate a series of economic, social and environmental benefits associated with an auxiliary productive activity, which will create wealth and employment, and which also promotes both a more sustainable management of certain waste than currently they are considered as such and require specialized management.
- Analysis of fuel depletion to improve emissions and generate “unburned” for commercial use.
- Evaluation of the potential use of “residues” as fuel for boilers (different in nature from conventional agricultural/forestry biomass).
- Research on a new generation of activated/modified hydrichars that allow the oxidation of CO to CO2 and from NO to NO2.
- Create plant substrates with the ability to absorb NO2 and particulate matter.
- Generate solutions for the use of CO2from emissions.
- Waste pretreatment to obtain solid fuels.
- Research on new combustion concepts.
- Activation and chemical modification of hydrochars.
- Research on new biofilter materials to capture emissions.
- Plant species with high CO2 uptake.Intensive greenhouse cultivation.
- Systems integration. Full pilot validation.
- This project outlines a more sustainable energy future, with combustion energy installations without chimneys, not even below the established emission limits, that are capable of producing electrical and thermal energy at any scale, in a clean, safe, efficient way and more cheap.
- A natural solution that can be integrated into an urban garden or green infrastructure that will allow the capture of emissions from combustion and similar processes.

Circular Economy Projects:
WalNUT addresses the current gaps in nutrient cycles of differnt European waste water treatmetn systems and their related environmental problems through the application of comprehensive and innovative nutrient recovery systems, by interlinking three fundamental main drivers.
The main objective of the project is to unlock access to product data and use it for enhanced CE decision making across the product life cycle. Circthread will enable to capture and share both data and CE decisions as part of a collaborative information infrastructure, providing a Circular product chain of cusotdy.
The purpose of NUTRIMAN is for farmers to understand and know the real benefits of fertilizers of biological origin and how to adopt and use them in a practical way in their crops.
NUTRI2CYCLE addresses the current gaps in the N, P and C cycles of different European agricultural systems and the related environmental problems by implementing optimized management systems whilst having a positive trade–off with productivity, quality and environmental impact.
The PENNYFUEL project aims to demonstrate the technical-economic-environmental feasibility of a sustainable strategy for the production of biodiesel, based on Thlaspi arvense (Pennycress) oil.
HOUSEFUL proposes an innovative paradigm shift towards the circular economy in the housing sector. The main objective is to develop and demonstrate an integrated systemic service (HOUSEFUL Service) composed of 11 circular solutions co-created by the agents involved in the housing value chain.
The BIOMETRANS project seeks to promote the recovery of dry and wet biomass waste generated in the Ibero-American Region, through the production of biomethane and promote its use as transport biofuel.
The LIFE ALGAECAN project proposes a new wastewater treatment system from fruit and vegetable processing by combining the cultivation of heterotrophic microalgae with spray drying of the collected microalgae.
The LIFE REFIBRE project aims to solve the environmental problem involved in the accumulation of this amount of waste from wind turbine blades in the landfill.
The LEACHLESS project proposes a treatment model that will be carried out “in-situ” using a cost-effective novel technology that combines solar evaporation/condensation plus forward osmosis
The LACTISHOE project deals with obtaining new products from the footwear sector that will have excellent regenerative properties in the skin with which they are in contact, due to the innovative incorporation of microencapsulated lactic acid.
The LIFE PAVEtheWAySTE project wants to facilitate the implementation of the Waste Framework Directive in remote areas by allowing local and regional authorities to improve the operation of their municipal recycling systems and thereby pave the way towards high efficiency of the resources.
Life BIOSEVILLE develops an integrated system for the value of frying oils generated in the city of Seville. This system ranges from oil collection logistics to obtaining a more efficient, competitive and ecological biofuel.
The goal of the LIFE + VALPORC is to demonstrate a sustainable alternative to the management of pig carcasses and manure, focusing on the environmental problems derived from its current management and valorizing these wastes by transforming them into biofuels (biogas and biodiesel) and organic fertilizers,
The LIFE SMART Hospital Project has promoted the sustainability of the health sector through the deployment of best practices and available technologies, training programs and replication of experience.
The main objective of the COLRECEPS project is the implementation of a prototype demonstration plant to recycle residual EPS and obtain EPS beads. With these pearls, new recycled EPS prototype products will be manufactured.
The LIFE REVAWASTE project (www.revawaste.eu) was born proposing the sustainable management of a broad spectrum of waste in an integrated plant or “Mixed Plant”.
The LIFE EUCALYPTUS ENERGY Project consists of the pyrolysis of eucalyptus biomass for the production of electricity and biochar. It is intended to make use of the residual biomass of eucalyptus forest exploitation.
RECALZA proposes to develop a chemical recycling process of the generated polyurethane foam residues, to obtain the polyol again and re-manufacture new products (recycled soles) that meet the requirements for the footwear sector.
The CONREPOL project will evaluate both chemical procedures based on the use of compounds that increase the surface polarity (silane coupling agents) of the waste and physical treatments with the same objective.
The GREEN CAR ecodesign Project applies the ecodesign methodology to several components of the “electric vehicle” system: batteries, converter, charging points, conditioning systems and auxiliary systems from renewable sources
RESCATAME represents a new system for the sustainable management of traffic through the use of models that predict pollution levels, which are supported by data collected by the network of air quality sensors, and that can help to execute a rapid action.
