The ENVICRACK cluster was established in 2006 for the purpose of supporting innovation and improving the competitiveness of its members.

Since its inception, ENVICRACK has been focused primarily on activities connected with the liquidation of waste and the resulting gases and substances.

Based on the needs of its members, the scope of the cluster’s activities was expanded from the area of waste-processing to include the area of innovation activities in the use of renewable and alternative sources of energy. The cluster’s main activities are science and research activities in the preparation of waste for further utilisation with the use of pyrolysis technology and in the area of using renewable and alternative sources of energy.

The results of science and research activities are applied in the form of technology transfer in three areas:

  1. Pyrolysis technology for processing sorted waste
  2. Solar energy (conversion into thermal and
  3. Innovation in rail transportation (particularly reduction of energy consumption through the use of recuperation and accumulation of energy)

The cluster’s activities especially consist in:

  1. cooperation between members
  2. support and development of activities focused on the enhancement and application of research and development in the relevant areas
  3. development of innovation activities
  4. the endeavour to penetrate foreign markets and to maximise the export performance of the cooperative’s members
