INITIATE study visit to the Swerim Plant

The INITIATE consortium – Horizon 2020 project with which RETROFEED signed recently a collaboration agreement will hold, in cooperation with its project partners Swerim and CO2 Value Europe, its first study visit to the Luleå pilot plant on Friday the 17th of February 2023 in Luleå, Sweden.

Targeting mainly R&D professionals, PhD and post-docs within the INITIATE consortium interested in familiarising themselves with the demo-scale equipment and in deepening their knowledge of industrial symbiosis and the role of carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) and carbon capture and storage (CCS) to mitigate climate change, participation is subject to availability – register now!

Here you can find the draft agenda for the day.

Modernising the Steel Industry: A step forward for digitalisation in Electric Arc Furnace (EAF)

Companies in the steel sector are Resource and Energy Intensive Industries mainly due to the use of Electric Arc Furnaces (EAF) to melt the steel scrap. This EAF has a very high energy consumption, which translates into a high environmental footprint.

Join us for this RETROFEED workshop to discover the solutions developed in two steel factories (PITINNI GROUP and TENARIS SILCOTUB) for reducing their energy consumption. We will demonstrate the Decision Support System (DSS) specially designed for them, which helps understand how some variables are influencing the process without having to perform extensive tests or complicated procedures.
