Introduction to the Fruit Basket, project Output Library

The Baltic Sea Region (BSR) Programme 2007-2013 financed in total 90 transnational cooperation projects covering a wide scope of themes. In order to share the work done with you, the Programme has created this online basket of projects – a Fruit Basket if you will (formally called the Output Library).

The Fruit Basket may be used for diverse purposes. For example, when you have a specific challenge in your area with regard to transport, you may want to find out what has been done previously in that area and you will most likely find useful documents that would increase your knowledge in the specific topic. Take your pick!

Date:
Jan 2012
URL:
Description:
Longlife Report 3 is the follow up of Longlife 1 and 2 Reports. It includes the development of the Longlife Prototype Catalogue, a selection of materials, elements and technologies, which fulfill Longlife standards and increase renewable energy consumption and reduce operational costs considering the life cycle of the building. On the basis of this catalogue, five national designs for the Longlife Pilot Projects were developed, residential buildings in Denmark, Germany, Lithuania, Poland and Russia in consideration to sustainability, energy efficiency and resource saving.

Manual for sorting of waste
Date:
Nov 2011
URL:
Description:
The manual presents the main steps of implementation of sorting of waste with important issues and examples; examples on factors influencing the output of source-sorting programs in household waste collection systems and experiences from using them in Sweden, with focus on sorting of food waste. Examples from Lithuania and Poland are also included. Experiences show that the systems for household waste sorting should be user-friendly; the need for recycling bin solutions for small spaces and more user-friendly designs of recycling bins as well as color cods for bins for fractions of recyclables.

Title:
A regional model for sustainable biogas production - case study: North Savo, Finnland
Date:
Dec 2012
URL:
Description:
For energy supply security, more attention should be paid on how to utilize the existing energy potential in biodegradable waste. Sustainable biogas CHP and biomethane production was studied with regional modeling in North Savo region which showed that only two biogas plants would be enough to handle biodegradable waste. House hold biowaste should be separately collected also in rural areas. The utilization of manures and spoilt crops for farm scale biogas production should be subsidized. Waste and energy companies could co-operate in more efficient way.

Pilot projects
Date:
Oct 2013
URL:
Description:
Within RB21T 18 pilots have been carefully selected in order to improve their present unique and current situation and to provide feedback to the Investment Concept and the Joint Strategy. They were selected to learn from and study the process in different countries of the Baltic Sea Region and to exchange experiences. The pilots were also important to achieve the goal of unlocking funds for waste management investments. Summary of the pilots are available at www.recobaltic21.net.

Hybrid biogas-electric buses
Date:
Jan 2015
URL:
Description:
Developing more energy efficient use of biogas in buses is key to the business case. To showcase this, investments in two different hybrid biogas-electric buses have been made. One is a 24-meter bi-articulated serial hybrid bus using a biogas engine to supply power to the electric drive-line. The bus is implemented and tested in Bergen, Norway. The other bus is a 12-meter bus using electric traction and biogas heating. By allowing all of the battery capacity to propel the bus, the biogas heating system acts as an indirect range extender. This bus is implemented and tested in Västerås, Sweden.

Small-scale biogas upgrading
Date:
Jan 2014
URL:
Description:
Biogas production is common in the EU, but upgrading of biogas to vehicle fuel quality is rarely done. This is a crucial step to supply biogas to more public transport buses. Investment in a small-scale biogas upgrading facility, which is installed at a landfill in Niepolomice, Poland, have been made. The upgraded biogas is tested and evaluated in CNG buses to showcase a greater use of biogas as fuel for buses in the EU. A socio-environmental-economical analysis of biogas upgrading, as opposed to producing heat or electricity, has also been done.

Standardised test methods to compare different plasma technologies and guideline for measurements
Date:
Feb 2011
URL:
Description:
One problem of the plasma technologies for environmental application is the large availability of different types of plasma modules. Every type of plasma module has their unique properties. To compare the different modules it is necessary to use the same conditions for measurement. The developed guideline combines a standardisation of test conditions and measure procedures. This is the basis for comparing different treatment methods and allows an easier selection of the most applicable technology depending on the respective application.
