RECO Baltic 21 Tech has now become a Flagship project
Harmonized approach to public procurement in the Baltic Sea Region through waste management: The project RECO Baltic 21 Tech (RB21T) has now become a flagship project to make the Baltic Sea Region a prosperous place to live.
RB21T is one of many projects of the Baltic Sea Region Programme aiming to fulfill the aims of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region. The strategy aims to intensify the cooperation between the Baltic countries and to shape the region into a regional cooperation model for the whole EU.
It focuses on four areas: environment, economy, accessibility and security. Within the different funding programmes some projects are announced as so called Flagship projects. This means they are projects with high significance, which should have a responsible lead partner as well as a deadline for implementation. As RB21T was announced as a flagship project under the “Baltic sea action plan” (BSAP) area 6, the project has a high European status and will influence the development of waste management in the Baltic Sea region even more.
RB21T is an international project addressing the problem of insufficient transnational actions in the field of waste management by different means and creating innovative business opportunities in the Clean-Tech industry. As implementing procurement procedures, both for the public sector as well as for SME’s, is one of the main activities of the project, RB21T aims to strengthen the competition by enlarging the internal market through a harmonized approach for public procurement.
Waste management is a matter of central concern to Baltic Sea countries, where significant disparities are seen. RB21T is partly funded by the Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007-2013 and is running from October 2010 to December 2013. It aims at addressing problems in the field of waste management by fostering sustainable waste management in the Baltic Sea Region.

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
Broadband rotational spectroscopy unravels structural reshaping of isolated molecules in the gas phase to accommodate water
In two recent publications in the Journal of Chemical Physics and in the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters, researchers around Melanie Schnell from the Max...
The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
