Market analysis - stakeholder survey
September 2020 - RETROFEED partners aims at performing a detailed market analysis of RETROFEED industrial framework in order to ensure a successful exploitation of the technological solutions developed by the project.
The purpose of the research is to identify potential external barriers and opportunities (e.g. biomass availability, regulation etc.) from the perspective of resource and energy intensive industries considering the replication of solutions tested by RETROFEED demonstration sites.

Can solutions for industries be transferrable among the different facilities in different sectors? Could this lead to industrial symbiosis?
September 2020 - The ultimate goal of RETROFEED is to provide industries with the necessary tools and strategies to incorporate variable, preferably biobased feedstock, leveraging on circular economy opportunities. But are the solutions developed transferrable among the different industries involved? Might this lead to industrial symbiosis?Read more
Retrofitting tools for industries: what's already available?
September 2020 - In the last decades, digital tools have become the key for handling complexities and evaluate opportunities in multiple industrial sectors. Industry 4.0 is part of this trend and is opening the door to the next phase of industrial digitalization where data, advanced analytical capabilities and new modelling techniques are leveraged to increase productivity with a specific focus on sustainability.
So, what's the state-of-the-art of the industrial digital landscape, in six different industrial sectors?Read more
Energy Intensive industry - Preliminary Market Analysis of agrochemical, aluminium, cement, ceramic and steel sectors
April 2020 - One of the key objectives of RETROFEED is to ensure the exploitation and commercialization of the knowledge and technical results obtained from the execution of the project in order to pave the way for the market uptake of RETROFEED in the industrial environment around Europe. A first preliminary report on a market analysis of the five sectors is published.Read more
RETROFEED kicks off in Brussels
November 2019 - The 26th and 27th November 2019 marked the official launch of RETROFEED, a project funded under the European Commission’s program Horizon 2020. The initial two-day meeting took place at the heart of Europe, Brussels, bringing together 18 ready-to-act partners with strong industrial expertise. The initiative’s ultimate goal is the implementation of smart pioneering retrofitting frameworks in the process industry by developing variable, biobased and circular solutions.Discover more
