The Danish Technological Institute (DTI) delivers technological services to almost all industries in Denmark and is a key player when it comes to applying research and knowledge. It provides a unique platform for the technological development of the business sector.
DTI adopts an interdisciplinary approach to innovation and to the task of improving the ability to exploit new technologies and management tools.
DTI has 8 divisions: Building and Construction, Energy and Climate, Business and Society, Life Science, Danish Meat Research Institute, Materials, Production and AgroTech.
Denmark consists of many islands, which are mostly served by old, noisy and polluting ferries. As part of a state funded project, Exilator installed their exhaust cleaning system on both main engines and generators of the M/F Isefjord, and the results were remarkable. Owners, captains, crew, passengers, the port, nearby restaurants and inhabitants were all […]
In Denmark, the biggest source of harmful particle pollution is wood stoves. Therefore, a large project funded by The Danish Environmental Protection Agency has been initiated to identify which initiatives and technologies are the most efficient for reducing emissions under real-life conditions. A residential neighbourhood in Aarhus, the second largest city in Denmark, will be […]
The vision for the climate resilient school in Roskilde is to handle all stormwater on campus. To ensure this, 1,100 m2 of roof has been disconnected and runoff from the pavement infiltrates through permeable pavings. Runoff from the roof runs through trenches into a paddling pool shaped like the local bay which is also used […]
In recent years, the Danish Technological Institute (DTI) has been a principal partner in several R&D projects focusing on characterisation and removal of microplastics and microrubber in wastewater treatment plant influent/effluent, industrial wastewater and stormwater, respectively.
Lightning fast robots equipped with advanced sensor technology will soon start sorting through waste in order to recover raw materials. The potential is huge – in DTI’s estimation, recoverable resources worth billions can be found by sorting through what we discard.
High-efficiency systems for energy reduction in industrial refrigeration plants with ammonia Funded by ELFORSK Project manager: Danish Technological Institute Participants: Johnson Control Alfa Laval Körting AG Helpman Grundfos Dybvad Stålindustri Budget: PSO: DKK 1,185,323 Total budget: DKK 3,376,750 Completion: 4th quarter 2009 Results:The industrial refrigeration system design for ammonia plants has changed very little in the […]
Heating Pumps in Industrial Cleaning Applications Funded by ELFORSK The project will develop a heat pump solution for an industrial cleaning applications and the solution will be tested at Grundfos for a specific washing process. The solution is expected to lead to electricity savings of about 50 %. The project will also develop a software tool which […]
On a global scale, less than half of all wastewater is collected and less than one fifth is treated. This has led to severe environmental degradation of many inland and sea waters around the world. This white paper provides lessons learned from Danish stakeholders within wastewater treatment.
Good water management can make cities healthier places to live, resilient towards climate change and more sustainable overall. Without proper sanitation, sewerage and clean water supply, there is no liveable city. This white paper features lessons learned from different Danish stakeholders within urban water management. It is meant to serve as a tool for inspiration for creating innovative water solutions, which contribute to smarter and more liveable cities.
Clean air in cities, shipping, agriculture and industry production is a matter of global health. Consequently, this white paper highlights some of the best practice examples of Danish clean air solutions, which can be implemented in different sectors to reduce ambient air pollution.
