Full Title: Design for Resource and Energy efficiency in cerAMic kilns
The DREAM project aims to design, develop and demonstrate a radically improved architecture for ceramic industrial furnaces, characterised by optimised energy consumption, reduced emissions, and...
This will be obtained by substantially enhancing specific furnace parts (control system, refractories, emissions abatement system) and by adding new modules and sub-systems (CHP unit, heat pipes) to...
Full Title: Waste Heat Recovery in Industrial Drying Processes
The overall objective of the DRYficiency project is to lead energy-intensive sectors of the European manufacturing industry to high energy efficiency and a reduction of fossil carbon emissions by...
The DRYficiency consortium will elaborate technically and economically viable solutions for upgrading idle waste heat streams to process heat streams at higher temperature levels up to 180 °C. The...
Full Title: Energy Efficient Coil Coating Process
The main idea is to heat the metal strip by IR-radiation and operate the curing oven well above the Upper Explosive Limit (UEL), thus, performing the drying and curing process in an atmosphere mainly...
Full Title: Circular Process for Eco-Designed Bulky Products and Internal Car Parts
ECOBULK through a large scale demonstration effort will contribute to “closing the loop” of composite products in the automotive, furniture and building sectors by promoting greater re-use, upgrade,...
Full Title: Direct electrocatalytic conversion of CO2 into chemical energy carriers in a co-ionic membrane reactor
GHG emissions reduction policies to mitigate the alarming climate change can impact carbon-intensive industrial sectors, leading to loss of employment and competitiveness. Current multistage CCU...
Full Title: Reusing excess Heat/Cold in a profitable way
EMB3Rs aim to develop an excess HC (Heat/Cold) (re)use matching platform for industry and end users.
The EMB3Rs platform will allow users to determine the costs and benefits related to excess HC utilisation routes and help establishing conditions for implementing the most promising solutions. It...
Full Title: Integrated cross-sectorial approach for environmentally sustainable and resource-efficient alumina production
The ambition of the ENSUREAL project is to demonstrate that a modified version of the Pedersen process can produce alumina from a wide range of minerals while not producing any waste materials....
Compared to the established Bayer process for alumina production, the ENSUREAL process will increase alumina production yield by 15 percentile points and reduce energy consumption by 5.4 GJ/t of...
Full Title: Enhanced energy and resource Efficiency and Performance in process industry Operations via onsite and cross-sectorial Symbiosis
The EPOS project brings together 5 global process industries from 5 key relevant sectors: steel, cement, chemicals, minerals and engineering. EPOS's main objective is to enable cross-sectorial...
The ambition of the EPOS partners is to gain cross-sectorial knowledge and investigate cluster opportunities using an innovative Industrial Symbiosis platform to be developed and validated during the...
