Announcement: 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%.
