DREAM

The DREAM project aims to design, develop and demonstrate a radically improved architecture for ceramic industrial furnaces, characterised by optimised energy consumption, reduced emis-sions, and lower operating costs compared to currently available technological solutions. This will be obtained by substantially enhancing specific furnace parts (control system, refractories, emissions abatement system) and by adding new modules and sub-systems (CHP unit, heat pipes) to the current furnace architecture. DREAM Specific Objectives will be: To design innovative hardware furnace components improving energy efficiency; To introduce substantial improve-ments on current hardware-software kiln parts; To demonstrate the DREAM solutions in a variety of industrial settings (WP6); To pave the way for a full seizure of DREAM related market oppor-tunities (WP7)
