COFFEECO

Coffeco relies on a phrase ‘’from trash to treasure’’. We  valorize the organic residues of the coffee in order to isolate all the nutrients that are hidden inside them. They are known in the market as polyphenols and have a large purchasing demand from the food and cosmetics industries as they use them like natural preservatives and for their antioxidant activity. But Coffeco didn’t  find exactly a new idea but a new opportunity in these residues because every year 30 thousand tons of coffee residues are thrown away and at the same time more than 30 billion are spent on Production of polyphenols ,when there are already free (and natural origin) in these residues. There is a great prospect of profit through the valorization of these residues.

CYRUS - www.h2cyrus.eu

Transport applications are responsible for almost 25% of Greenhouse Gases Emissions in Europe. Hydrogen is the most efficient clean energy carrier in this sector. To support this shift towards cleaner energy, new infrastructures of Hydrogen Refueling Stations (HRS) are already underway. Hydrogen compressors are a key element of these stations, accounting for ca. 50% of their capital costs and over 60% of their O&M costs. CYRUS PC has developed and manufactured a prototype Metal Hydride Compressor with unique advantages: - Pressure over 500 bar - No use of CRMs - Use of low – grade thermal energy resulting in very low O&M costs In general, a Metal Hydride Hydrogen compressor (MHC) is a compressor that works by absorbing hydrogen at low pressure and temperature and desorbing it at a higher pressure by raising the temperature with an external heat source like a heated water bath. Metal hydrides are special alloys that can chemically store hydrogen in their metallic lattice. MHC technology offers significant advantages over mechanical compression for small or large scale hydrogen compression.

As an innovative product (actually, Intcatch service is the outcome of an IA Horizon2020 programme) has been tested in front of numerous stakeholders or potential customers and the results have been presentted in the final workshop of 28th January 2020 by our team to EYDAP 's top management, some European partners and our stakeholders who had the opportunity to present issues related to water quality of Greek lakes and rivers. We are confident that the conclusions will attribute a lot to the popularity of this innovation. Although the target groups we aim are not of the best financial condition (usually public organisations / institutes-water catchments protectors) we hope that   this innovative service that is a good substitute of a time-consuming process which involves sampling-analysis-results recording will convince the scientific world for its effectiveness concerning directly detecting pollution and safeguarding waters.
