On behalf of the H2020 SOLPART project team, we are pleased to invite you to the SOLPART Final Info Day. This two-day final event will take place on:
- Thursday 28 November 2019: Conference sessions on CSP and SOLPART (Toulouse, ENSACIET, France)
- Friday 29 November 2019: Side visits of SOLPART Solar facilities (CNRS-PROMES, Font-Romeu-Odeillo, France).

The SOLPART Info Day will present a panorama of the project's main activities over the last 4 years, such as:
- an introduction on concentrated solar technologies applications to particle processing for the general public,
- the project's mains results and achievements in the field of solar calcination, such as: solar heat in industry, environmental benefits, scaling-up…

This event is free and open to the public and interested stakeholders. REGISTER HERE: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScQCjeYSThNePI44iTtkSK-wPwwL0MdrSCBXe58bIBBbBPUlA/viewform

SOLPART IN A NUTSHELL
SOLPART is a H2020-funded project which stands for "High temperature Solar-Heated Reactors for Industrial Production of Reactive Particulates".
The project aims to develop - at a pilot scale - a high temperature (800-1000°C) continuous solar process suitable for particle treatment in energy intensive industries, such as lime and cement.
Our objective: substituting fossil fuels with solar heat by 60 to 100% and cutting the greenhouse gas emissions of process industries by 40-60%.
