Robot makers tend to assume that their creations will make people's lives easier. Prospective users may not share their enthusiasm, or indeed their perception of the needs. Talk to each other, say EU-funded researchers. Otherwise, the uptake of this fantastic technology will suffer, and potential benefits to society may be lost.

Photo of article Sviluppare una fornace meno inquinante e più produttiva

L'industria della ceramica è responsabile dell'emissione di una considerevole quantità di gas serra. Per contribuire a ridurre la sua vasta impronta di carbonio, un gruppo di ricercatori e sviluppatori finanziato dall'UE ha impiegato tecnologie, simulazioni e test per creare una fornace più efficiente. Il risultato è una soluzione d’avanguardia caratterizzata da un consumo energetico ottimizzato, emissioni ridotte e minori costi operativi.

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 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.
