PROJECT ECOBUS LIFE - Environment 2002
System of withdrawal and recycling of vegetable
oils of domestic use for its reutilization as
biocombustible in the public fleet of buses in
the municipality of Valencia
Budget 2,100,000.29 EUR (1,000,000.00 from
LIFE funds)
http//www.ecobus.net
Programme LIFE-Environment www.europa.eu.int/comm
/environment/life
14
Objectives
PROJECT ECOBUS
  • The main objective is the elimination of used
    cooking oils that are generated in a great scale
    at the city of Valencia (Spain) and to employ
    them in substitution of more polluting
    combustibles, reducing the emission of CO2 in
    public transport.
  • The project is intended to establish a pilot
    experience whose results serve as starting to set
    up an adequate collecting system for those waste
    vegetable oils coming from domestic and catering
    sector, and their chemical processing to produce
    bio-fuel to be used in Valencias buses municipal
    service

PROJECT URBANBAT LIFE - Environment 2003
Integral management model of the liquid waste
from the fleet of Buses of the municipal
transport company in Valencia city
Budget 1,721,438.00 EUR (833,103.00  from LIFE
funds)
http//www.urbanbat.com
Programme LIFE-Environment www.europa.eu.int/comm
/environment/life
16
Objectives
PROJECT URBANBAT
  • To define, through the transfer and application
    of BATs (Best available technologies), a waste
    management model for the majority of liquid
    residuals generated in the maintenance and
    operation of a fleet of vehicles. Management
    strategy for these residuals will consist of both
    reducing environmental hazard and increasing life
    span. This will take place at the very point of
    generation, thus minimizing the need for an
    external management.
  • To deal with most of the liquid residuals
    generated as cab washing waters, motor washing
    waters, waters from rinsing of cooling circuits,
    cooling fluids, brake fluids and acids from
    exhausted batteries.
  • Not only defining this model, but demonstrating
    its inmediate extrapolation from the fleet of
    urban collective vehicles in Valencia to any
    urban transport organisation and/or transport
    fleets, as well as to other activities with
    similar problems.

Objectives
PROJECT BIOVID
  • To improve air quality and to control the quality
    of the air by means of a system of indicators and
    measurement stations.
  • To introduce a new method for the waste
    management of vine shoots, turning them into a
    raw material by means of an innovative process
    Cellulose extraction. The process will lead to
    the production of a paste to manufacture paper
    which is 100 ecological, and includes an
    exceptional recovery system of re-usable lignin.
  • To use the remaining waste of the BIOVID process
    as an organic material for composting, as well as
    for agriculture, gardens and for recovering
    degraded soils.
  • To reduce the wood consumption for paper
    manufacture. To carry out a dissemination
    campaign and to comply with European and local
    environmental legislation.

PROJECT e-SEVESO e-TEN 2004
To deploy a service through Europe for monitoring
the management Security that increases the
collective protection of people, goods and
environment by means of the effective sharing of
the resources of the Information and
Communication Technologies (ICT) (redundant and

dedicated so much to the prevention as to the
response capacity, without damage of the privacy.

Objectives
PROJECT e-SEVESO
  • To make the administration services (mainly those
    at local level) more accessible to the people
    that could benefit from them industries, local
    residents. e-Seveso is a tool that will help to
    implement regulations and voluntary codes.
  • To apply Seveso II Directive on major accidents
    hazards on certain industrial activities,
    e-Seveso applies equally to those industries that
    handling or not dangerous substances, falling or
    not within any directive, want to add or improve
    preventive measures for their industrial
    security.
  • To be specially suitable for SMEs with scarce
    means (human, economic) for accessing any
    costly/private security system. Most of these SME
    industries are allocated inside Industrial Parks
    or industrial districts, where special
    requirements frequently arise from the often (if
    not in all cases) close proximity of the
    establishments and their interconnectedness. The
    danger of the domino effect prevails in this
    situation.
