SOLPART Final Info Day

SOLPART Final Info Day

On behalf of the H2020 SOLPART project team, we are pleased to announce the organisation of the SOLPART Final Info Day. This two-day final event will take place on:

  • Thursday 28 November 2019: Conference sessions on CSP and SOLPART (Toulouse, ENSACIET, France)
  • Friday 29 November 2019: Site visits of SOLPART Solar Facilities (CNRS-PROMES, Font-Romeu-Odeillo, France).

The SOLPART Info Day will present a panorama of the project’s main activities over the last 4 years, such as:

  • an introduction on concentrated solar technologies applications to particle processing for the general public,
  • the project’s mains results and achievements in the field of solar calcination, such as: solar heat in industry, environmental benefits, scaling-up…

This event is free and open to the public and all interested stakeholders. Registration is mandatory here.

SOLPART IN A NUTSHELL

SOLPART is a H2020-funded project which stands for “High temperature Solar-Heated Reactors for Industrials Production of Reactive Particulates”. The project aims to develop – at a pilot scale – a high temperature (800-1000°C) continuous solar process suitable for particle treatment in energy intensive industries, such as lime and cement.

Our objective: substituting fossil fuels with solar heat by 60 to 100% and cutting the greenhouse gas emissions of process industries by 40-60%.
