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.
