Final Report - ANIMPOL (Biotechnological conversion of carbon containing wastes for eco-efficient production of high added value products)

Project ID: 245084
Funded under: FP7-KBBE


This is the final report of the ORIGAMI project which was funded under the Seventh Framework Package (FP7). The ORIGAMI project was concerned with improvements in long-distance door-to-door passenger transport chains through both improved co-modality and intermodality. It started from the premise that, with the continuing increase in trip length in interregional travel, effective use of the available transport modes as well as the interconnection between trip legs would become increasingly important for a growing proportion of passenger journeys, particularly of those which contribute most to the regional and national economies. The report covers the nine workpackages. Apart from the horizontal workpackages concerning project management, dissemination and exploitation, the technical ones were: Identification of travel behaviour, identification of needs, technical solutions, cross-fertilisation, scenarios, and conclusions and recommendations. From the wider view of ORIGAMI and the project's emphasis on decarbonisation of transport, one conclusion that needs to be particularly highlighted is the need for affordable and sustainable new fuel and / or propulsion technologies. The scenarios developed in ORIGAMI conclude that air travel will continue to rise strongly, but also car rises further in most scenarios.
