GeiserBox - waste Active Higienization
GeiserBox® represents a new concept in the treatment of the Municipal Solid Waste, which offers important advantages in relationship to the methods employed presently.

The GeiserBox® system developed by the Ambiensys engineers, processes the Municipal Solid Waste and the reject produced by the plants based on traditional selection models, to convert them into clean materials with market valorization.

The great versatility of its design, allows it to process from 25.000 to 600,000 tons annually of residues, in a reduced space. 

The GeiserBox® system has been conceived as a primary process of waste transformation. This means that the separation of the materials will take place during a second phase, using conventional separation equipments  increasing his efficacy up to 95% . 

The GeiserBox®  also can be adapted previously to the  Mechanical-Biological plants, reducing in a 80% to 5% the reject of these facilities, while that will be also reduced the bad smells and the maintenance costs.

Debate de Innovación - El Front-end de la Innovación

Fecha: 2.3.2015  Hora: 16:00 a 18:30

Lugar: Parc Tecnològic del Vallès (Cerdanyola, Spain) 

Debate de innovación

 

El Front-end de la innovación, desde la identificación de la oportunidad hasta la especificación del proyecto

 

 

El Parc Tecnològic del Vallès e Ideas2Value Network han diseñado un ciclo de debates abiertos a la participación y aportación de expertos y del público asistente, para abordar temas relacionados con la gestión estratégica de la innovación.

 

Nuestro entorno socioeconómico está cambiando de forma radical y acelerada. En este contexto, la innovación, principal fuente de ventaja competitiva y de crecimiento en una sociedad avanzada, está sufriendo cambios radicales. Pero, ¿en qué consisten estos cambios? ¿qué implicaciones tiene en la forma de abordar la innovación a nivel empresarial? ¿Dónde encontrar oportunidades para crear valor? ¿por qué ahora es urgente priorizar la ejecución sobre la ideación? ¿qué papel juegan las personas?

 

El Front-end de la innovación, desde la identificación de la oportunidad hasta la especificación del proyecto

 

Las fases iniciales del proceso de innovación estan ligadas, tanto a la identificación de oportunidades como a la generación de ideas y creación de nuevos conceptos.

En este debate queremos analizar el papel de las herramientas de creatividad (tanto psicológica como técnicamente) y de las herramientas estratégicas como la vigilancia y la previsión durante esta fase, juntamente con la gestión del proceso.

El programa previsto es:

 

 

  • Presentaciones:

 

 

  • Café - networking entre los asistentes
  • Debate entre los ponentes conducido por el moderador
  • Turno abierto de preguntas de los asistentes

Haciendo compatible la innovación con nuestro día-día

 

De todos es sabido que es bueno para la salud seguir una dieta equilibrada y hacer ejercicio físico regularmente, a poder ser cada día. Así lo avala la conocidísima frase “Mens sana in corpore sano”.

Por la mañana, bien temprano, me levanto y voy a un gimnasio. Allí me encuentro con un sinfín de posibilidades para hacer ejercicio: piscina, máquinas, sesiones dirigidas, etc. Normalmente existe un cuadro de horarios para que puedas elegir la actividad que desees a la hora que mejor te conviene.

Y me pregunto, ¿te imaginas algo así pero en la recepción de nuestra empresa? Pero…con unos ejercicios un poco diferentes:

Captura de pantalla 2014-06-02 a la(s) 19.27.51

Es decir, un tablón de servicios como; creatividad, desarrollo de negocios, técnicas para crear nuevos negocios… En definitiva: servicios para los empleados de la empresa.

¿Verdad que estaría bien?

Así uno se apunta al horario que mejor le va. ¡Sin cita previa! Ya que el día-día no nos deja innovar, la empresa se ha preparado para que podamos aprovechas aquellos tiempos que podemos tener más ligeros para dedicarlos a la innovación. Al no tener cita previa, se mezclan personas de diferentes áreas de la empresa, para así, conocernos mejor, compartir mejor y realizar talleres de todo tipo con la mayor diversidad posible, para crear con los más distintos puntos de vista que nuestra empresa ya puede ofrecer a sus empleados. Un especialista experimentado, interno o externo (en función de cada empresa) dirige las sesiones, para que en cada una salga lo mejor de nosotros mismos. En cada sesión se “ataca” un problema distinto, con la participación de las diferentes personas que se apuntan de forma espontánea, vengan de donde vengan. ¿Cómo lo ves?

Revelo: A revolution in urban transportation

Bike Month is well underway, having kicked off on May 26 with Toronto’s 25th annual Bike to Work Day. Until June 26, Toronto and its surrounding areas will be home to countless community-initiated events that celebrate cycling. These events are a great way to explore bike culture in Toronto, connect with other cyclists and enjoy the long-awaited sun.

You may notice a greater number of e-bikes, or electronic bikes, in bike lanes this year. E-bikes are an environmentally friendly urban transportation alternative, and sales of the latest designs are taking off throughout Asia, Europe and North America. In fact, according to a full lifecycle analysis done at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2010, e-bikes have about the same cradle-to-grave environmental impact as traditional bicycles. That’s 13 times less than a typical sedan and about six times less than rail transit. Plus, let’s not forget about all the time you can save by avoiding traffic and public transportation delays while carving your own route through the city.

One e-bike manufacturer to pay particular attention to is Revelo, a MaRS Cleantech Venture Services client and the creator of the newLite Electric One (LE-1). Henry Chong, founder and CEO of Revelo, set out to redefine how people think about sustainable and greener modes of transportation with his concept of a creatively designed, compact and foldable e-bike. The result is definitely a gear above the competition.

Translate Creativity and Innovation into Results

Until recently, innovation was limited to the creation of new products and value added services that will give advantages over competitors. Today innovate means much more: open or new business revitalization and transformation of management in key areas of management to achieve the objectives pursued. There are traditional companies that are getting strong results from this type of innovation, and what they do is achievable for a large number of our businesses. This requires overcoming a number of key stages:

 

  1st Sensitization: seeks to achieve a favorable attitude to overcome various factors that are blocking progress and potential for innovation.


   2nd Credibility: is obtained if we reach some initial results with minimal resources.


   3rd Systematic Management: to ensure quality recurring in the same process of innovation.


   4th Consolidation: to ensure that innovation delivers results beyond the initial impulses and people that have launched.

Sistematització de la Innovació - CECOT - 9.10.13 - Terrassa (Spain)

Cada dia, estem confrontats a una gran afluència d’informació en relació a nous desenvolupaments, productes i tecnologies. En aquesta maror, és fa difícil prioritzar quina informació és d’alt impacte per la nostra entitat i podria esdevenir una innovació disruptiva, contrastar-la amb desenvolupaments recents i, si escau, cercar socis tecnològics per desenvolupar-la.

 
En aquesta jornada, tres experts ens introdueixen eines que ens ajuden a identificar, de forma més àgil i sistemàtica, aquelles idees i tecnologies que ens poden aportar un alt valor afegit.
 
Per una banda, coneixerem l’eina easycrit, un banc d’idees que ens ajuda a avaluar i desenvolupar de forma sistemàtica les idees aportades pels treballadors i/o col•laboradors fins a l’obtenció dels resultats esperats, amb un mínim de riscos i un màxim de consens intern.
 
Per l’altra banda, podrem conèixer a través de Innorocket una eina que ens ajuda a trobar socis tecnològics que ens ajudin a desenvolupar idees que requereixin d’una expertesa que no tenim in-house.
 
Les dues eines s’han desenvolupat amb un enfocament internacional, basat en el núvol amb opció a versió client, i amb un disseny altament funcional.
 
DIA: 9 d'Octubre
HORA: de 19:00 a 20:30
LLOC: Patronal Cecot – Sant Pau, 6 Terrassa
 
 
Presentació: 

Sr. Valentí Sallés, president del Club Cecot d’Innovació i Noves Tecnologies.

 

Moderador:

Sr. Carles Cosials, membre de la Junta Directiva del Club Cecot d’Innovació i Noves Tecnologies

Providers development - Open Innovation

November 7th, 2012.

Today we updated easycrit with new functionality. This time, it is what is called Supplier Development. It is able to send the same challenge to some providers. These are invited. Each contributing their ideas. From the hiring company you can see all ideas and knows who has contributed. From the point of view of the supplier they only see their own ideas. The contractor's private information is hidden. Thus, the contractor can decide which supplier will do that project. The same system can be applied internally in the company, because now you can define different user groups, each with different objectives or not.
