Dear clients, our laboratories will be closed 2-5 January, 2015.Happy Holidays!
The results of Cosmos-Rice project were published in Science for Environemnt Policy, the information service published by Directorate-General Environemnt of the European Commision.
Reduction, re-use and recycling of waste produced on board in order to improve the contribution of the maritime sector to the European commitment against climate change
It is co-funded by the European Commission through LIFE+ the European program for supporting environmental projects.

Sustainable Cruise Newsletter:
As testimony that waste is increasingly considered to be a resource, Sustainable Cruise is adding an ambitious new objective to those already established: to demonstrate how a quality “product” can be obtained from the treatment of bio-waste and can be reused on board the ship or resold on the market.
This hypothesis, already shown in part by Contento Trade, which used its laboratories to analyze water samples directly from the shipboard pulper, the system from which all the bio-waste is transported and linked in turn to the turbo-dryer.
Thanks to special centrifugal machinery (DIC), it will be possible to separate the various elements making up this type of water: oil, light liquid, water and dry food waste.
Oil, which represents 1.9% of the total, may be reused depending on the following two hypotheses evaluated in the project: mixing the substance obtained to the ship’s fuel or offloading it and selling it on the market.
Clearly, in order to understand if and how it is possible to exploit this new product it is necessary to perform further tests on water samples and above all verify the correspondence between the product and the relative national and European legislation in force.
In any case, this involves an important result that offers “Sustainable Cruise” yet another element of innovation.
Contento Trade will participate at 6° edition of the International Exhibition Composites Technologies and Advanced Materials takes place from the 5th until the 7th of February 2014 in Marina di Carrara, Italy simultaneously with Seatec, the International Fair Technologies Subcontracting and Design for the Marine industry.
Hall 'D' - Stand 904
Compotec is the first exhibition in Italy totally dedicated to the composites and has the aim of gathering producers and distributors of different industries as well as universities, institutions and associations involved in the sector.
The latest edition Compotec (2013) registered the presence of 96 exhibited brands, 37 of which coming from foreign countries. The Exhibition addresses all industrial sectors using composites from the marine industry to aerospace, defense, automotive, aeronautic, transportation, house-building, medical, sport, design and more. The positive outcomes of the latest edition was also due to organization of foreign delegations of professionals from various strategic sectors, an initiative which will be repeated during the upcoming edition. The goal of the project is the organization of B2B meetings, a precious opportunity reserved to all our exhibitors.
