The project concerns a domain defined in English as Urban Forestry (UF) - i.e. it is directly related to the role of urban greenery (high and low as well as the entire „green infrastructure") in urban areas. UF issues are extremely important for the inhabitants of urban agglomerations, whose awareness regarding the presence and health status of urban greenery has significantly increased in recent years. The project's innovation is based on the use of innovative 3D technologies, including LiDAR laser scanning - in the precise high green inventory. Assessment of the health condition of trees can be used in the context of improving the safety and health of urban residents and tourists staying in these places, as well as minimizing the risk of damage to public and private property.

It is planned to make a laboratory technology demonstrator that will be adapted to continuous process running together with a measuring stand for quick verification of the obtained process effects. Thanks to this solution, it will be possible to demonstrate the effect of using the technology on potential customers, based on real waste water samples. It is a unique solution on the domestic and international market, which allows to demonstrate to the client how the technology works and the effects of its application after implementation at the plant.

The invisible layer of microcapsules with carp gelatin hydrolyzate and / or peptide, located on the surface of perishable food (e.g. raw fish) will allow the inhibition of oxidation processes, which is one of the reasons for the inadequate quality of stored fish. Therefore, the technology developed for the production of microcapsule solution with hydrolyzed carp gelatin and / or biopeptide can be an effective solution to many environmental as well as food problems.

The subject of R&D works are steel reference balls with devices for their stabilization on the surface of the land in the form of a steel tripod (solution R1) and on balustrades and handrails in the form of steel clamp (solution R2). Terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) is used in many engineering fields, including enables non-contact and automatic measurement of one million points in real time. To uniquely identify common points in the space of scanning stations, among others, reference balls. The balls are placed in the scanner view space and stabilized by means of handles, magnets, etc.

The use of living organisms in the removal of impurities (generally bioremediation) is becoming increasingly popular in the world. Previous studies have experimentally confirmed the critical functions of future technology (treatment plant). Callitriche together with accompanying species can be a high-efficiency biological filter enabling purification of water and sewage from chromium compounds present in the environment, i.e. chromium (VI) and chromium (III). The solution obtained under the project may be used in hydrophyte sewage treatment plants containing chromium (and other heavy metal compounds). The area of application of such treatment plants will be mainly areas contaminated with Cr compounds - plants producing or using chromium compounds, as well as post-mining areas.

„Growth Stimulator" is an innovative technology of post-emergence plant irradiation, using the combined method (algorithm for irradiating plants with adjustable light beams). It is dedicated to agricultural producers looking for agro-technology dedicated to plants in the juvenile phase, sensitive to potential abiotic and biotic stress factors, including pathogens, water deficit.

Measuring balls dedicated to the integration of measurement data from TLS and UAV are not produced in the world or in Poland. Until now, manufacturers of scanners and accessories for them have focused on the modification of reference balls for the needs of measurements by ground laser scanning techniques. In commercial sales you can find only a few offers of reference balls for laser scanning in the classic form of the white sphere, but there are no reference balls in the proposed form and functionality.

There are no known (in Poland, Europe or in the world) constructions of the strawberry fruit harvester intended for cultivation, carried out in rows or beds, field and / or under cover, neither in the production version, in the form of a finished product, nor in the version prototype. The planned result of pre-implementation works will be the optimization of the construction and operation of the pneumatic system designed to support the work capital collecting strawberry fruit.
