SOLPART organized its 4th project meeting in Cologne, at the DLR institute on the 20th of June, 2017 to discuss about the advancement of the project since January 2016. The project is reaching its first periodic report to hand back to the EC and will undergo a review of the achievement of the project in September 2017. More info on the latest achievement of the project to come soon.
On the 21st of June, the project organised an exploitation seminar in order to better map the key exploitable results of the project and plan appropriately the future ways of maximising the project impact. More info on the key exploitable results to come soon.
On the 29th of May, 2017, the SOLPART project was presented at the Climate Change conference organized in the capital of Malta under the auspices of the MALTA EU presidency.

On the 29th of May 2017, in the capital of Malta, will be held an important event on climate change and organized under the aupisces of the Malta EU presidency: http://paragonevents.eu/event.php?c=climate-change
While the goal to contain global warming and reduce considerably the emissions of greenhouse gases becomes more and more important, energy intensive industries needing thermal heat to process their chemical reactions (like the cement or lime sector) are still big energy consumers and CO2 emitters (the 2nd biggest sector in the world). This becomes crucial to find alternative ways to produce this thermal heat other than with fossil fuels.
As part of this objective, the SOLPART project has been funded by the EU H2020 research programme to demonstrate the use of a solar heated reactor working at 900°C 24h/day and suitable for the thermal treatment of reactive particule in non-metallic mineral industries. Highly relevant for the thematic of the conference, the project will then participate to the Malta EU presidency to make a flash presentation of the objectives and expected impacts of such a project dealing with the integration of solar energy into high-temperature industrial processes.

On the 1st of December 2016, the SOLPART team visited the phosphate calcination plant of the OCP moroccan company which could use solar energy to provide the thermal heat needed for their energy intensive processes. The development of this new technology will be possible thanks to the SOLPART project.
For its third project meeting, it was decided to host it in Morocco where two partners of the project are located. This happened on the 30th of November, 2016.
