HORIZON CL4-2024-TWIN TRANSITION 01-41: Avances para mejorar la eficiencia de recursos en la industria de procesos
ResumenA Spanish Research & Development (RTD) centre represents a specific use case involving an international consortium including key industrial partners of the steel/ferrous and engineering sector, that can complement any other use case related to this topic, summing up in the successful presentation of a high impact proposal.
Ferrous components manufacturing industry is an industrial sector highly intensive in raw material and energy consumption. Our use case develops complex engineering products, redesigned by using an innovative manufacturing technology that allows saving resources in almost all the manufacturing process steps. The international consortium of this use case comprises key manufacturing industries, technology providers and end-users, representing all the value chain from the component manufacturer to the final user. RTD centre contributes with its expertise in sustainable manufacturing technologies, advance materials, process modelling and digitalization tools. The project provides the opportunity to reduce at least 30 % of the industrial processes resource (raw materials) efficiency of the ferrous sector compared to the current state of the art.
Additional use cases are necessary to complete the consortium based in any of the other process industries sector of Process4planet partnership: cement, ceramics, chemicals, engineering, non-ferrous metals, minerals, pulp and paper, refining, or water. The new/innovative technologies to be applied in all use cases must assure a reduction of at least 30% of industrial processes resources after the project. The technology should be demonstrated and validated at a suitable scale against current industrial processes to produce the same products.
RTD center fully committees to support in the preparation of the common chapters of the proposal, the description of the activities linked with the ferrous use case and the coordination of their integration with the activities resulting from from the other use cases.
Modelling, digitalization and environmental impact evaluation would be transversal aspects tying up the different use cases.
RTD centre is a private non profit institution specialized, in technologies and metallic materials developments for process industry sectors: engineering, ferrous and non-ferrous.
Advantages and innovation
Innovative manufacturing process of ferrous components with a resource efficiency in raw materials higher than 30 % together with a proportional waste generation reduction.
Potential changes in final component design also provides enhanced performance properties of final product.
Reduction C02 generation intensity of the process industry.
Technical Specification or Expertise Sought
The ideal partners should be a combination of RTD+industrial partners active in manufacturing and disruptive process technologies development to assure a 30 % of industrial resource efficiency after the project ends.
A coordinator of the proposal is sought.
