The European Commission has allocated €1.59M for the commercialization of the Neoballast project led by COMSA through the ‘Fast Track to Innovation’ (FTI) program, an initiative to close to market innovative products. Neoballast aims to improve the properties of railway ballast to reduce the level of degradation and attenuate the noise and vibrations caused by the trains running on the tracks. 

On the other hand, the engineering area has set-up the eQualtiq start-up, an advanced solution which enables energy consumption of facilities and buildings to be optimized in accordance with sustainability and efficiency criteria. The technology includes active control systems to adapt consumption to the real needs of the facilities, forecasting systems to predict future demands, and recommendation tools to propose and implement cost-saving measures leading to cost reductions.
