The Plus-Moby project is focused to the implementation of low cost and low energy intensity technologies to manufacture premium four wheel fully electrical micro vehicles (450-650kg and speeds up to 90\ km/h)) that can be upgraded to M1 configurations. Technologies and methodologies developed in previous calls of the EU Green Car will be implemented in terms of low aero-drag and safe structural designs, system integration on powertrain, batteries, solar panels, energy management (Wide-Mob and P-MOB), design criteria to reduce electromagnetic emissions (EM-safety), customer demand (Capire,ICT4FEV). Weight is optimised to satisfy maximum stability in all weather conditions including high lateral wind. Materials and systems are selected to assure the highest EURONCAP standards applied in conventional cars for both front and lateral crashes. Safety cells concepts will be introduced with low cost structures based on the combination of pure retainable and self-adaptable mechanics. Starting from a prototype having an energy consumption already demonstrated at 65Wh/km in the NEDC cycle, further reduction of energy consume is expected by enhancing the performance under pure electrical braking. Altogether the average energy consume is expected to be lower than 40Wh/km in the NEDC cycle with most of the days fully run by solar radiation only in most southern EU countries. The two motor electric powertrain addressed, which has been demonstrated to have the highest fail safe mode, within Plus-Moby it will be demonstrated to emulate, and for certain extent replace, both the ABS and ESP expensive systems. The technology addressed will be implemented with low cost and easy to access manufacturing technologies. A relevant role is given to SMEs and regional SMEs clusters to assure competing speed and commitment. The partnership is organised in such a way that a new era of easy to produce low cost but high performance micro e-vehicles is opened across all EU countries.

The paper presents result of investigation of physical, chemical and energetic properties of steam coal slurries deposited in twenty four impoundments. Performed investigation include determination of chemical composition, moisture content, volatile matter, sulfur and calorific value at various states. Additionally, properties of coal slurry of particle size below 0.1 mm are presented. The paper presents also results of energetic potential analysis of coal slurries deposited in impoundments. Results shown are for "as received" basis and for concentrates after beneficiation. Coal slurries were beneficiated using the following techniques: hydrocyclone classifier-separator, centrifugal separator, Reichert spiral separator LD4 and flotation. Assessment of energetic potential was made for concentrate whereas losses of energetic potential due to beneficiation were estimated. The most effective method was flotation where the loss of energetic potential was 15% and varied from 3 to 31% depending on the impoundment. Average value of obtained concentrate was 25 057 kJ/kg being the highest among all of the methods. The research was performed under the development project Nr N R09 0006 06/2009 titled: "Identification of energetic potential of coal slurries in the national fuel balance and technological development strategy of their usage". The project is implemented by the Institute of Mechanized Construction & Rock Mining in Warsaw in cooperation with the Department of Mineral Processing and Waste Utilization of the Silesian University of Technology.

Rare earth metals including yttrium and europium are one of several critical raw materials, the use of which ensures the development of the so-called high technology. The possibility of their recovery in Europe is limited practically only to secondary materials such as phosphogypsum and electronic waste. The article presents the results of our research concerning the development of recovery technology of yttrium and europium from luminophore CRT used lamps. It describes the principle of separation of elements and the test results of cleaning the concentrate. It was shown that the costs of preparing the concentrate according to the proposed technology are lower than the phosphogypsum processing technology and the composition of the resulting product does not contain hazardous substances. © Copyright by Polish Academy of Sciences and Institute of Environmental Engineering of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Zabrze, Poland 2013.

Research in mineral resources management clearly indicate that more substances known as waste become mineral resources in new technologies. The common meaning of the word "waste" is replaced with the term "potential mineral resource" and most recently as "secondary resource". This reflects both usage properties and potential benefits. Basing on statistical data (the end of 2011) the amount of waste produced by the economic sector in Poland is nearly 123,5 mil Mg. In this, hard coal mining waste constitute about 28 mil Mg, meaning nearly 23%. Additionally, it is estimated that nearly 480 mil Mg of such waste is deposited in the environment. The result of the data analysis is that around 80% of waste produced during exploitation and processing of minerals is - in order to avoid fees for dumping - used in economy. Only 30% of this is industrially used and almost 70% is applied in ground levelling, engineering works or in so called "ground constructions". This way the abundance of potential mineral is irretrievably lost. The basic legal act for waste management issues is the Act from 10 July 2008 on extractive waste (Dz. U. Nr 138, poz. 865) adapting to the existing Polish law Directive 2006/21/EC. The aim of this Act is to prevent production of waste in extractive industry, diminishing their negative influence on the environment and people's health. The major aim of the project "Foresight in priority and innovative technologies of hard coal mining waste management" is identification of leading technologies in mining waste management of primary meaning, as their development in next 20 years in Poland will be a priority as well as creating scenario of their development through applying systematized research methodology. The project is conducted by the consortium including Institute of Mechanised Construction and Rock Mining, Silesian Technical University in Gliwice and AGH University of Science and Technology in Cracow. The article presents current situation of hard coal mining waste management in Poland, including criteria of their economic usage. It also presents the diagnosis of current state of development in economic management of hard coal waste technologies, defines evaluation criteria of innovativeness of currently applied technological solutions, provides SWOT analysis results on institutional and technological level, scenarios for the development of innovative technologies for utilisation of hard coal mining waste and future research and development work.

In the construction industry carbonate aggregates are commonly used in processes such as concrete production. Aggregates which contain (in their mineral composition) dolomite and an admixture of clay minerals and amorphous silica,can react with alkalis. These reactions can lead to a destructive expansion in concrete. This article explains the mechanisms and the essence of this phenomenon. What is more, some effective and fast methods of the estimation and evaluation of Polish aggregates consisting of carbonate rocks suggests effective methods to determine the usefulness of Polish carbonate aggregates in concrete production are discussed in the paper. Underneath the quality criteria to determine the reactivity of the aggregates will be given. It has been agreed that alkaline reaction and expansion are two separate phenomena related to each other genetically. The aggregates in which reactions caused by clay-siliceous admixtures occur are subjected to expansion. Mineral composition of expansive aggregates as well as their texture indicate that epigenetic dolomites with a distinctive texture are the most reactive.

The article presents current state of waste management from hard coal mining industry including legal requirements within the field. The article also deals with the research project "Foresight in priority and innovative technolo-gies of hard coal mining waste management"which aims at evaluating current state of technological development in economic usage of hard coal mining waste and indicating investments priorities and directions of management. Research activities in the area of mineral resource management clearly show that more and more of the substance, recently regarded as waste, is getting in new technologies, the value of minerals. Functioning well until recently, the term waste shall be replaced by potential mineral resource, and recently more and more as a secondary raw material. This reflects both the values of utility and possible benefits from its use. Idea of the project Foresight on priority and innovative technologies for handling hard coal mining waste (Foresight OGWK) is to identify priorities for investment in research and technological development, changing the orienta-tion of science and innovation system, strengthening the potential of Polish research & development sphere and public as well as private sector enterprises operating in the sector of economic use of waste from extractive industries, through development and implementation of foresight methodology in the range of innovative waste management technologies. There is an urgent need to develop a comprehensive program of waste management from coal mining and the placement in government programs for restructuring of coal mining and power industries, adequate records regarding the waste and their use.

The KAM2CentralPoland project will be implemented by the consortium called EEN-CP in central parts of Poland. The main objective of the project is to increase the efficiency and the effectiveness of R&D and innovation investments that will contribute to smart growth in EU countries. Main objective of the project will be implemented via two specific objectives: (1) To increase the innovation potential of small and medium enterprises lacking professional support in the field of innovation management. (2)To increase the economic potential among enterprises benefiting from The SME Instrument of H2020 by identifying bottlenecks and indicated solutions with the help of a capable coach. The innovation processes starts with an idea and ends with the innovation result, including leadership, management skills etc. Many EU regions, including Poland seem to lack complex services supporting innovation management. Regions covered by KAM2CentralPoland consortium belongs to more developed part of Poland, even so they still lack of complex services supporting innovation management. There are measures within the structural funds dedicated to the SME sector that support elements of innovation management but the coaching schemes still do not exist. Thus, both services the Key Account Management and the Enhancing the innovation management capacity of SMEs offered under this proposal address the challenges of the H2020 Work Program 2014-2015 Innovation in small and medium-sized enterprises and also meets the requirements of this consultations.
