The project

Implementation of a smart RETROfitting framework in the process industry towards its operation with variable, biobased and circular FEEDstock

RETROFEED main objective is to enable the use of an increasingly variable, bio-based and circular feedstock in process industries through the retrofitting of core equipment and the implementation of an advanced monitoring and control system, and providing support to the plant operators by means of a DSS – Decision Support System – covering the production chain.

This approach will be demonstrated in five resource and energy intensive sectors (ceramic, cement, aluminium, steel, and agrochemical)

Design And Drawings Of The New O2 Injector And Delacquering Drum

March 2022 - The objective of RETROFEED project in aluminum industry is to increase the amount of scrap aluminum in the melting furnace from 37.8% to 48% in order to save energy. This will decrease the CO2 emission and, therefore, the carbon footprint of the process. For this reason, retrofitting solutions in ASAS demo site are focused on the oxygen injector system, the new burner head and the delacquering drum system.conference and exhibit.

What is coming up in 2022?

January 2022 - The 2022 is, probably, the key year of the project. RETROFEED is expected to install and test the new sensors developed and the DSS will be finished for all demo sites, starting its use by the plant operators. Moreover, the core equipment will be already installed or modified, allowing demo sites to work with the new developments carried out in the project, helping to use a variable, biobased and circular feedstock.
