DAPhNE: Development of Adaptive ProductioN systems for Eco-efficient firing processes

R&D Objectives

The overall scope of the DAPhNE project is to develop and demonstrate a package of integrated solutions for different energy intensive processes (ceramics, cement and glass), based on tuning alternative firing technologies to the material characteristics and on smart control systems, to provide real time information about the energy consumption as well as the product quality.

 

Overview of the Initiative

Many High temperature alternative heating techniques has not been implemented as a full-scale industrial-process. The DAPhNE project brings together three manufacturing sectors (ceramic, glass and cement) with common problems in relation to the energy consumption of their firing processes, seeking common solutions via the implementation of high temperature alternative technologies based on smart control and monitoring systems.

DAPhNE will contribute to transform the traditional manufacturing of energy-intensive demand commodities, which is based on consumption of fossil fuels with low control process capacity, into a completely new concept of flexible, modular, re-configurable, smart and digital factory concept based on:

  • Smart control of high temperature alternative processes
  • Smart control of production lines that incorporate the above proposed alternative solutions, capable of maximizing autonomy and interaction capability with existing machinery and ensuring reuse of existing infrastructures.
