Company Profile:
(SPANISH)
GIRO es un grupo de investigación del área de Medioambiente & Cambio Global del Institut de Recerca en Tecnologia Agroalimentària (IRTA www.irta.cat), que colabora con la Universidad Politécnica de Catalunya (UPC www.upc.edu), especializado en investigación y transferencia tecnológica relacionada con la gestión y tratamiento de residuos orgánicos de diferentes orígenes: gases contaminados, suelos contaminados, residuos sólidos (urbanos, industriales) o líquidos (aguas residuales, acuíferos, etc.).
GIRO ofrece a las empresas y administraciones un amplio abanico de soluciones dentro de las tecnologías del medioambiente y orientadas a la producción de energía renovable: producción de biogás, bioenergía a partir de celdas microbianas, producción de fertilizantes, biofiltración de gases contaminados, bioremediación de suelos y acuíferos, tratamiento biológico de aguas residuales, planes de gestión de residuos.
GIRO ofrece servicios relacionados con:
- Coordinación y realización de proyectos R+D+i, con temáticas específicas para empresas o de interés general para el sector del medioambiente y energías renovables, donde se implementarán procesos a escala laboratorio, piloto o industrial.
- Gestión de proyectos, incluyendo (I) la búsqueda de convocatorias públicas competitivas al alcance de empresas, (II) definición y redacción de proyectos, (III) presentación, seguimiento y justificación de las ayudas conseguidas.
- Soluciones tecnológicas mediante procesos de estabilización y aprovechamiento energético de residuos, como la producción de biogás (optimización, seguimiento y diagnóstico de plantas en funcionamiento), la producción de energía en celdas microbianas o el compostaje.
- Procesos biológicos específicos, como la biofiltración (diseño, operación, diagnóstico), la bioremediación (ensayos de biotratabilidad o de biodegradabilidad de contaminantes) o la eliminación biológica de nutrientes excedentarios (diseño, operación, diagnóstico).
- Asesoramiento y asistencia técnica en la implantación de sistemas de tratamiento mediante (I) evaluación de alternativas tecnológicas, (II) evaluación de residuos mediante ensayos estandarizados de laboratorio, (III) laboratorio de microbiología y de análisis de muestras ambientales (residuos, suelos, gases, aguas residuales).
(ENGLISH)
GIRO is a research group inside the Environment & Global Change area of IRTA (Agri-Food Technology Research Institute) that works in partnership with the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC) and carries out advanced research related to the management and treatment of organic waste.
GIRO is able to identify problems related with organic waste from different sources as complex environmental management, polluted gas streams, solids (contaminated soils, organic wastes) or liquids (wastewater, aquifers) or nutrient surplus in liquid effluents. GIRO offers to companies a wide range of R&D services, technological transfer and training that will enable them to find appropriate solutions and to take fullest advantage of the opportunities in environmental and renewable energy technologies: biogas production, fertiliser production, bioenergy with microbial fuel cells, biofiltration of polluted gases, bioremediation of solids and aquifers, biological treatments of wastewater, comprehensive management plans.
GIRO offers services on:
- Coordinating, managing and carrying out R&D Projects organised to provide made-to-measure technological solutions.
- Consulting services and technical support for the implantation of new waste treatment solutions, methods of organisation, management plans and programmes.
- Scientific and technical services. Comprehensive analytical support and interpretation and diagnosis of results.
- Environmental microbiology laboratory for environmental biotechnology studies.

Coordination and development of R&D Projects on biological treatment and/or valorisation of organic wastes

What we offer:
GIRO is able to identify problems related with organic waste from different sources as complex environmental management, polluted gas streams, solids (contaminated soils, organic wastes) or liquids (wastewater, aquifers) or nutrient surplus in liquid effluents.
GIRO offers coordinating, managing and carrying out R&D Projects organised to provide made-to-measure technological solutions. Projects might be on specific work line for a private company or with general interest for the environment and renewable energy sector. Experimental tasks will be done in laboratory or pilot scale. Project managing would include the searching of financial funding, writing and objectives definition or partners’ selection, as well as administrative tasks along the project development.

What we are looking for:
Partners in collaborative R&D projects

Collaboration sought:
  • Technical cooperation
  • R&D cooperation

Consulting services and technical support

What we offer:
GIRO is able to identify problems related with organic waste from different sources as complex environmental management, polluted gas streams, solids (contaminated soils, organic wastes) or liquids (wastewater, aquifers) or nutrient surplus in liquid effluents.

GIRO offers services on consulting services and technical support for the implantation of waste treatment solutions, methods of organisation, management plans and programmes.

These services would include the implementation of stabilization and/or energy valorisation of organic wastes through processes as biogas production, bioenergy production in microbial fuel cells, composting, bioremediation, biofiltration and excess nutrient removal or recovery.

What we are looking for:
GIRO looks for customers from these sectors:
- waste management
- engineering and consultancy
- manufacture or supply of equipment and processes
