Always at the forefront of technological innovation
We have been studying plasma for over ten years. Our internal researches and our collaboration with several research centres around the world led us to the development of extremely innovative products that let us remain always at the forefront of technological innovation.
The use of plasma in industrial processes, in fact, is recent but not totally new. It is absolutely essential though to distinguish between GRINP Plasma Technology and a common corona, that has nothing to do with the role of “chemical reactor” our plasma has (please visit our page and contact us for further information about our Plasma Technology).
Our ongoing R&D&I efforts produce great results thanks to a highly skilled team composed by engineers, physicist and chemists who earned their PhDs in renowned universities in Italy, France, Germany and United States. Their mental agility and different backgrounds are a great added value when it’s time to innovate, since dynamism and confrontation are the first step towards the creation of something new and brilliant.
Other than performing internal research studies, we are used to collaborate with companies, research centres and universities around Italy and Europe through Regional and European Research Projects (under the Seventh Framework Programme and Horizon 2020).
The ones that follow are some of the projects of technological innovation we are involved in.
Atmospheric plasma treatment for the enhancement of textile surfaces for more efficient treatment processes.
The POWER project aims at industrial demonstration and market uptake of a more efficient and sustainable textile manufacturing process through atmospheric plasma technology in key points of the production chain.
Plasma is an eco-friendly technology that modifies the fabric surface by high energy electrons and ions bombardment. With POWER solution, which proposes plasma as fabric pre-treatment step, water and pollutants (dyestuffs, resins, additives, etc) used in the wet chemical processes of the textile production chain can be reduced dramatically.
Duration: December 2013-November 2016
This project is co-funded by the European Union within the CIP Eco-Innovation Initiative, under grant agreement ECO/12/332996
The main aim of the GRASS project is to design, develop, test and validate “on-the-field” an innovative prototype of Graphene-Related Node for a Wireless Sensors Network, to be used as autonomous system for Environmental Monitoring on different areas.
The Node prototype(s) will be composed by sub-systems, exploiting different components based on Graphene Related Materials (GRMs), taking advantage by the most recent progresses on GRMs research in the field of Sensors and Energy Applications, thanks to a specific multi-module approach.
The Node prototype(s) will be continuously updated until the end of the project (also during the final validation phase), following GRMs-based components’ developments and improvements within the GRASS Consortium and the Graphene Flagship.
Duration: October 2014 – March 2016
Large area transparent thin film thermoelectric devices for smart window and flexible applications.
The main objective of the project is to develop an innovative large area distributed sensor network integrating transparent thin film thermoelectric devices and sensors for multifunctional smart windows and flexible high impact volume applications.
Different breakthrough concepts are proposed: 1) large area high performance transparent thermoelectric thin films deposited on flexible substrates for thermal energy harvesting; 2) low cost high throughput thin film thermal sensors for thermal mapping and gesture sensing; 3) flexible smart windows and walls with energy harvesting, environmental sensing and wireless communication functionalities.
Duration: January 2015 – December 2017
This project is funded by the European Union within the H2020 program.
Plasma Active Pollution Control System.
The PAIR project aims to introduce in the market an innovative air emission control system, based on plasma technology, for the active and efficient reduction of gaseous pollutants and odours deriving from industrial and agricultural activities. In particular, PAIR project will first address NMVOC emissions from solvent producers and users.
Duration: May 2015 – November 2015
This project is a SME instrument Phase 1 that has been co-funded by the European Union under Grant Agreement 673428
Technological innovation: a challenge for us, an opportunity for you market.
ECIPOL – Economia Circolare nell’Imballaggio e negli infissi a base POLimerica (Cod. Domanda 311-204)
- PARTNERS: Agrindustria Tecco Srl – Guala Closures Spa – Grinp Srl – Bonelli Serramenti Srl – Ramaplast SpA
- BUDGET: €776.992,00
The objective of the project is the use of waste from the agricultural production to obtain materials that could be used for packaging.
The plasma treatments of the substrates increase their properties and chemical-physical interaction with the polymer matrix.
The project has been co-financed by POR FESR Piemonte 2014-2020, Asse I, azione I.1b.1.2
