Periodic Reporting for period 1 - CIRMET (Innovative and efficient solution, based on modular, versatile, smart process units for energy and resource flexibility in highly energy intensive processes)
Reporting period: 2018-10-01 to 2020-06-30
An increase of the energy and resource efficiency of these processes are then critical for the competitiveness of this industry, but also for the environmental sustainability. This is why technologies to improve the waste management, increase the heat recovery and reuse and reduce emissions are being developed in the project.
The main objective of the project is to design, develop and validate the CIRMET solution, an innovative solution to provide energy and resource efficiency and flexibility to Energy Intensive Industries (EIIs).
A preliminary communication and dissemination plan has been prepared in this period. Different communication channels are active since the beginning of the project and periodically updated: the project website (https://www.spire2030.eu/cirmet) and project accounts in social media such as Twitter and LinkedIn. Learning resources are also being developed in order to disseminate the knowledge built up in CIRMET. An online course is being prepared divided in different modules addressed to different target groups such as policy markers, industry and educational community.
Concerning the exploitation plan, the key exploitable results (KERs) have been defined and a preliminary version (pre-exploitation plan) of these results has been already prepared.
