Article: Harnessing the sun to clean up industrial processes
The SOLPART project was presented on the H2020 news website : http://ec.europa.eu/research/infocentre/article_en.cfm?artid=43916
The production of cement and lime involves fossil fuels and produces harmful greenhouse gases. Industry could change this, if scientists can develop a technology that can use solar power for high temperature industrial processes. The EU-funded SOLPART project has built lab-scale reactors that use a solar powered process to meet this need.
