Sort and segregate nuclear waste: phase 1 (SBRI competition)

 

This is a Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) competition funded by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.

 

The aim of the competition is to develop an autonomous and integrated toolkit to sort and segregate radioactive waste generated by nuclear decommissioning activities. This will reduce the level of waste requiring disposal, increase productivity, reduce costs, and improve safety.

 

This is phase 1 of a 2-phase competition. Up to £600,000, including VAT, is available for phase 1 and it is anticipated that the feasibility study R&D contracts will be up to £60,000, including VAT. This is for each project for up to 3 months. They expect to fund up to 10 projects. At the conclusion of phase 1 you will produce a technical feasibility study.

 

Only successful applicants from phase 1 will be able to apply to take part in phase 2. The second phase will involve up to 4 R&D contracts. Up to £900,000, including VAT, will be allocated for each contract for up to 15 months, in order to develop and demonstrate a full scale prototype in a non-radioactive environment.

 

Your project must:

  • reduce waste by prioritising its recycling over its disposal
  • reduce the number of waste sorting and segregation processes carried out by humans
  • increase the productivity of the processes
  • be scalable and transferable

Your application must address all the following:

  • detect the type and intensity of the radioactivity present using existing technology or off-the-shelf equipment
  • determine the composition, size, shape, and surface area of the material
  • sort and segregate the waste by radioactive classification and material type
  • remotely move the waste from a specific area, process it and then pack it into the appropriate container (for
  • example, skips, drums, boxes or bags) ensuring the space used is optimised
  • collect and analyse data and images, and retain accurate records

Closing date: 11th November 2020. For more information, click here.

 

Management Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

 

Just like thebhighly effective KTP programme, Management KTPs (MKTPs) create a dynamic 3-way partnership between your company, a team of academic experts and a skilled graduate. The focus of a MKTP is specifically on increasing effectiveness and improving results through better management practices.

 

These have the same funding deadlines as KTPs - click here for full details.

Horizon 2020: EIC Horizon Prize for 'Innovative Batteries for eVehicles'

 

Registration opens: 22.02.2018, Closing date: 17.12.20

 

Award: Share of €10m

 

Organisation: Horizon 2020

 

The challenge is to develop a safe and sustainable battery for electric-vehicles through the development of new materials and chemistries making use of abundant, sustainable low cost materials, which are easily available in Europe. Solutions are required to provide the same or better performance than vehicles with internal combustion engines and to be capable of recharging the electric vehicle within a time equivalent to fill a conventional gasoline/diesel fuel tank.
