2017-12-30 Spain: Sustainability/Resource and Waste Management/Energy Efficiency on Farms


 

Sustainability/Resource and Waste Management/Energy Efficiency on Farms

Description of the project offered: 
The "Instituto Madrileño de Investigación y Desarrollo Rural, Agrario y Alimentario" (IMIDRA) is an autonomous organism of the Environmental Counseling of Madrid, which its main objective is the research in the areas of agriculture, livestock and food. Likewise, it develops activities that allow rural environment development, and transfer of technology and knowledge at different levels, based on the needs of Madrid‘s agriculture and food sectors. The three principal functions and activides of IMIDRA are:

- Research.
- Support to research and rural development.
- Transfer of technology and knowledge.

IMIDRA has farms in several locations at the outskirts of the city of Madrid where these activities are carried out. Agricultural plots, livestock farms, forestry operations, among others, are carried out in the different locations of the institute. Fairs, courses and other activities related to the transfer of knowledge are developed regularly.

We seek for entities willing to colaborate with in the demonstration of technology innovation projects by providing them with the infraestructures we own and our research experience. We are specially interested in proposals related to sustainability management, resource and waste management, and energy efficiency. Within these areas we are focused on problematics like:


• Climatization of buildings with renewable sources of energy.

• Thermal insulation of buildings.

• Organic waste exploitation for building climatization, fertilizer production or protein production for animal feed.

• Wastewater treatment for irrigation reuse.

• Solar pumping.

The ideal partner would be an entity with an innovative technology which gives a solution for any of these problems and with whom we could demonstrate its performance at our facilities.
