About the project
The CIRMET Project aims to design, develop and validate an innovative solution to provide energy and resource flexibility to Energy Intensive Industries (EIIs).
For this purpose, three new demonstrators will be built up, plus the retrofitting of existing industry process unit. The new demonstrators or modules will be: EFFIMELT furnace, a new concept of flexible and modular process unit for industrial wastes treatment, RECUWASTE heat recovery unit, for flue gas heat recovery and transformation into compressed air to re-used in the same plant, having also the possibility of storing the excess energy and AFF40 (Analytic For Factory 4.0) platform, to improve process plant competitiveness, to increase energy and resource efficiency by controlling and optimizing process units. The retrofitting of an existing process unit will be done to implement and validate the complete CIRMET solution.
The role of MSI is to contribute in an important manner to the development of the AFF40 platform, focussing on data fusion and data visualization on one hand and to the design and development of the CVT control of the RecuWaste unit on the other hand. Additionally, MSI will lead the task on the replicability analysis of the AFF4.0 platform towards other sectors.
Full Name: Innovative and efficient solution, based on modular, versatile, smart process units for energy and resource flexibility in highly energy intensive processes
Start Date: 01/10/2018; Duration: 42 Months
