MORE ABOUT US

The STRATECO team gained comprehensive know-how for the implementation of consulting and planning processes with individual enterprises, municipalities, cities, research institutions as well as private persons in the field of sustainable development through the study of environmental system sciences and the joint employment of several years at the Graz University of Technology at the Institute of Process and Particle Engineering in the working group Process Synthesis, Process Evaluation and Regional Development under the guidance of Prof. Michael Narodoslawsky.

A large number of implemented projects, with numerous research and industry partner and other customers, led to an intensive deepening of sustainability assessment and optimization. This work was and is connected with a high personal motivation for the thematic contents. After the fulfilling research activity at Graz University of Technology, we set the initial spark in 2016 to build a joint company. The space for creativity is particularly motivating to move even more intensive in the direction of practical implementation projects!

KEM Carnica Rosental

The project aims to minimize greenhouse gas emissions in the region and maximize value creation. This is to be achieved through the increased use of regional renewable resources within a technology network. The network brings synergies that would not result from the use of individual technologies.

The core of the project is the creation of a calculation model for the region, which can be used to consider different scenarios. These scenarios show different paths of use of the regional renewable resources and their economic and ecological added value.
The region thus has an innovative basis for discussion, on the basis of which it can set the course towards environmental and climate protection and a strengthened regional economy in an overall concept.

JPI Urban Europe: Making Cities Work; Project Title: SYNCITY - Synergetic Cities for Europe

Joint Programming a process of the European Commission, which was established in 2008 with the aim to strengthen the cooperation in the field of research and innovation of the European countries by using national resources in a coordinated way. The Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe was founded in 2010 to expand cooperation in the field of urban research and development in order to create attractive, sustainable and economically strong cities.

SYNCITY - Synergetic Cities for Europe:
The city of tomorrow needs sustainable participatory processes involving all relevant stakeholders, pushing innovation competence and operating in a paradigm of sustainability. This is the starting point for the SYNCITY project.
How can processes and structures be established between the relevant stakeholders that enable synergies, creative sustainable solutions and positive changes for living together in an urban community? This question becomes all the more important when faced with conflicting interests and uncertainties typical of urban development processes.
In line with SDG 11 "Sustainable Cities and Towns", SYNCITY shows how urban transformation projects, especially in disadvantaged areas with very diverse communities, can achieve a high level of acceptance among residents and positive effects on urban society as such, the local economy and the whole life in the city.
Often, urban transformation plans with a potential for positive change lack a comprehensive and coordinated integration of stakeholders. The SYNCITY case study in the neighbourhood of Cureghem in the center of Brussels, Belgium, leads to a methodology for urban transformation processes, which leads to three feasible proposals for future larger scale urban transformation projects in Crureghem and a toolbox for European municipalities to better implement integrative urban transformation processes in the future.

Layjet; New micro-pipe laying process

The aim of the cooperation is to determine and present the ecological footprint using the Sustainable Process Index (SPI®) method and the carbon footprint of the average LAYJET Micro-Pipe laying process compared to the conventional standard process. The evaluation reveals the areas that stand out from an environmental point of view within the new process as well as the differences between the innovative LAYJET method and the conventional dredging method.

acib - THE AUSTRIAN CENTRE OF INDUSTRIAL BIOTECHNOLOGY

Instead of evaluating already existing processes, this projects aim is to integrate process and sustainability evaluation already during early development stages. Therefore, possibly costly and difficult changes in system structures can be avoided.

By creating a tool for standard process development, which combines important parameters with assessments of resources and materials, the user has an easy access to information about the future impacts of the process.

PROJEKT PRO GmbH

Die PROJEKT PRO GmbH entwickelt Softwarelösungen für Planungs- und Ingenieurbüros und ist stets bemüht ganzheitliche Lösungen für seine Kunden anzubieten.
In diesem Projekt wird der ökologische Fußabdruck und die CO2-Bilanz der Softwarefirma PROJEKT PRO GmbH ermittelt und dargestellt. Mit Hilfe der Lebenszyklusanalyse (LCA) zeigen sich Bereiche der Firma, die sich aus ökologischer Sicht hervorheben, sowie die ökologische Gesamtbilanz. Die Ergebnisse stützen sich hierbei auf die Methode des Sustainable Process Index (SPI) und beziehen jegliche Vorketten und auch externe Dienstleistungen vollständig mit ein. Stützend auf diesen Ergebnissen kann sich die Firma PROJEKT PRO GmbH somit in weiterer Folge zu einem klimaneutral wirtschaftenden Unternehmen entwickeln und darstellen.

Steirisches Kürbiskernöl g.g.A.

„Kein anderes Lebensmittel ist von seiner Entstehung und Entwicklung so untrennbar mit der Steiermark verbunden wie das Steirische Kürbiskernöl.“ Es ist eine naturbelassene Spezialität die durch ihren einzigartigen Charakter ohne jegliche Fremdöle, Farb-, Aroma, oder Konservierungsstoffe auskommt und in zahlreichen Speisen Verwendung findet.
In diesem Projekt sollen die verschiedenen Prozessschritte aus unterschiedlichen Herkunftsregionen der Steiermark nach dem ökologischen Fußabdruck des Sustainable Process Index (SPI) bewertet werden, um die sogenannten ökologischen Hot-Spots darzustellen. Dafür werden die Daten zahlreiche Mitgliederbetriebe der Kürbiskernöl g.g.A. digitalisiert aufgenommen und mit einbezogen. Aufbauend auf die ökologische Bewertung wird es der Steirisches Kürbiskernöl g.g.A. möglich sein sowohl noch ökologischer zu wirtschaften, indem man sich an dem erarbeiteten Best-Case-Szenario orientiert und dieses intern kommuniziert, als auch quantifizierte Vergleiche zu ähnlichen Produkten darzustellen.
