Photo of article Developing a better producing, less polluting kiln

The ceramics industry is responsible for emitting a substantial amount of greenhouse gases. To help reduce the industry's sizeable carbon footprint, a team of EU-funded researchers and developers used technology, simulations, and testing to create a more efficient kiln. The result: a state-of-the-art kiln defined by optimised energy consumption, reduced emissions, and lower operating costs.

Photo of article Wydajny i niskoemisyjny piec do wypalania ceramiki

Przemysł ceramiczny odpowiada za emisję znacznych ilości gazów cieplarnianych do atmosfery. W celu zmniejszenia dużego śladu węglowego tego sektora, zespół finansowanych przez UE badaczy i programistów wykorzystał symulację, technologię i testy, aby na ich podstawie opracować bardziej efektywny energetycznie piec do wypalania ceramiki. Dzięki temu powstał nowoczesny, niskoemisyjny piec, który zużywa mniej energii i oferuje niższe koszty operacyjne.

Photo of article Tidal flows generate huge potential for clean electricity

More predictable than the wind and sun, tides have a massive potential when it comes to generating clean electricity. With tidal turbines already generating electricity within our seas, the challenge facing the industry now is to reduce costs. A consortium of EU-funded organisations has been using this knowledge to create a novel turbine able to make tidal energy more competitive.
