Webinar - 11.00 am CET
This is the era of the fourth industrial revolution. An era of change towards new digital solutions for the simple and efficient management of processes and plants. Unlike the innovations of the previous industrial revolutions, however, these ones, in addition to the optimization of planning and management, focus on sustainable production pushing towards processes with a reduced environmental impact and greater energy efficiency and autonomy.
We organize a free webinar to illustrate the recent innovative digital solutions studied, used or developed in four different European research projects: SHIP2FAIR, SO WHAT, RETROFEED and ECOFACT, which tackle different steps of the value chain. Take part in the webinar on Monday 22nd February and discover innovative digital solutions that will be transferred to industrial practice.
In particular, the following innovations will be presented: the SHIP2FAIR Replication Tool that supports the design phase of solar heat technology in industrial processes and the development of techno-economic feasibility studies, the SO WHAT integrated Tool that supports industries and energy utilities in selecting, simulating and comparing alternative waste heat and waste cold exploitation technologies for the heat and cold processes demand reduction, the tool that allowed to carry out the RETROFEED industrial sites energy audits even during the first lockdown of the Covid-19 pandemic and to conclude the ECOFACT platform built in a multi-service approach providing an innovative holistic combination of functionalities for advanced energy-efficient, sustainable process / product design and manufacturing management.
These projects have received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreements no. 792276 (SHIP2FAIR), 847097 (SOWHAT), 869939 (RETROFEED) and 958373 (ECOFACT).
