REEMAIN

Efficiency of energy and material resources.

Description

The REEMAIN Project (Resource and Energy Efficient ManufacturINg) combines cutting edge knowledge and experience from production processes, energy simulation software tools, energy and resource planning and renewable energy and storage to develop and demonstrate a methodology and platform likely to boost the efficiency of both energy and material resources.

Within the REEMAIN framework the intelligent employment of renewable energy technologies and resource saving strategies consider energy purchase, generation, conversion, distribution, utilization, control, storage, re-use in a holistic and integrated way.

Objectives

  • Innovation on use of resources (energy and materials) at the factory, including the optimization of the production-process-product.
  • Decision making tool to support factory owners in the complex tasks of analysis, decision and planning.
  • Dissemination at the European and International levels together with a strong support for standardization activities.

Actions

  • Seamless integration of renewable energy systems,
  • Recovery of wasted energy.
  • Simulation tool to plan best strategies towards resource efficiency and minimal environmental and cost impact.
  • Demonstration activities in three different factories (SCM foundry in Italy, Bossa textiles in Turkey and Gullon biscuits in Spain).

Expected results

  • Simulation tool.
  • 15 efficiency measures in demo factories.
  • Innovative industrial electricity storage prototyp.
  • Innovative concentration solar panel.

SO WHAT

SO WHAT

SO WHAT project aims to develop and validate an integrated software for auditing industrial process, planning and simulation of waste heat and cold (WH/C) valorisation systems towards the identification of economically viable scenarios where WH/C and renewable energy sources (RES) cooperate to match local demand.
