CCTT Infrastructures Castilla y León
The Regional Strategy of Research and Innovation for an Intelligent Specialization (RIS3) of Castilla y León 2014-2020, establish an strategic objectives, such as reinforcing a more competitive and sustainable economic model troughout the business innovation, the resources efficient use and promoting multidisciplinar collaboration between knowledge-generating agents and knowledge transfer; improving relationships at the regional system of R&D, establishing mecanisms to promote business collaboration, multidisciplinar collaboration between researchers and the transference of knowledge and technology.
In line with Castilla y León RIS3 strategy, the capacities of the Technology Centres with venue in Castilla y León want to be enhanced and thereby contribute to improve the community business network competitivity, specially of the SMEs, through the knowledge and support in their different technological needs.
This grant line, which first call was realized in 2020, has as an objective the support to Technology Centres of Castilla y León community to execute investments in the research infrastructures, in order to strengthen theri technological and scientific capacities, improving their positioning and at the same time reinforce their transference and support activities to the business network.
The grants, under this order, are co-financed by the European Fund of Regional Development (FEDER) and is framed in the Operative Programme FEDER2014-2020 of Castilla y León approved by Decisión C (2015) 4921, 14 july of 2015.
CARTIF has participated in the 2021 call with 5 proposals focused in the next topics: Food, Biofuels purification, Air quality and agroecologic processes, Digital advance manufacture, having obtained funding for four of them:
- First procurement in Spain of the REVTM vacuum radiant energy dehydration technology.
- Sustainable process of generation and purification of biofuels.
- Development of research lines about air quality and agroecological processes.
- New equipment in matter of digital advance manufacture.

Renewable hydrogen and natural gas production and storage
The project focuses on the development of an integrated process for the production of green hydrogen and hydrogen carrier molecules (energy carriers) for use as renewable fuels to replace current fossil fuels.
Sustainable process for the efficient recovery of metals from wasted electric vehicle batteries
Recovery of metal oxides present in the cathode of electric vehicle battery cells by means of hydrometallurgical and direct recycling processes.
Innovation in rapid methods for the detection of biomarkers of interest in agri-food, environmental health and biomedicine
Las líneas de investigación de CARTIF en calidad de aire interior y mejora de la calidad alimentaria buscan ir un paso más allá en las capacidades analíticas y experiencia que se tienen actualmente para trabajar en aplicaciones dentro de los sectores de la salud ambiental, la agroalimentación y la biomedicina.
Sustainable Biofuel Generation and Purification Process
The project is focus on the valorisation of agro-industrial organic residues for the production of biomethane, through anaerobic digestion processes. Also, the use of technologies for the treatment of gaseous and liquid streams will be based on membrane contactors and reverse osmosis membranes, respectively. On the other hand, pretreatment of samples with microwaves will also be studied.
New equipment in advanced digital manufacturing
This proposal focuses on the Fab LAb (Fabrication Laboratory) concept, which is a digital fabrication workshop for personal use, i.e. a space for the production of physical objects on a personal or local scale that brings together machines controlled by computers. Its particularity lies in its size and its strong link with society rather than industry.
Development of research lines on air quality and agro-ecological processes.
The research lines of AIR QUALITY and AGRO-ECOLOGICAL PROCESSES seek to achieve sustainable solutions to alleviate environmental problems such as poor air quality, urban green regeneration, environmental well-being in cities, management and restoration of urban watersheds, sustainability in the use of resources and energy in cities, conservation of urban ecosystems…
