Goal: To develop a strategic roadmap within the consumer goods industry to increase value creation in healthy, safe, and sustainable consumer goods for emerging global consumers and social niches. The project addresses consumer needs in target groups with specific needs such as elderly, obsess, dibbles, or diabetic persons by supplying fashionable, affordable, and eco-friendly clothes and footwear.

IMS Activity: IMS collaborations create a knowledge charing platform for research groups from both the scientific and industrial community. They are engaged in R&D domains for customization and production paradigms for user centered products.

This is implemented through:

  • Common R&D activities
  • Workshops & Dissemination
  • Targeted Expert Exchanges
  • Promotion of New Research Initiatives
  • International Research Roadmap for the Consumer Goods Industry

Participants:

  • CNR-ITIA- EU
  • Synesis- EU
  • INESC Porto- EU
  • DITF- EU
  • Fratelli Piacenza S.p.A- EU
  • Assyst-EU

Overview

Definition of a holistic perspective of the economically and ecologically oriented production environment; Development of a comprehensive sensing, monitoring and data evaluation system which could grant access to an organic view of all the materials, energy, wastes and emissions flows within the factory;  Extension and development of new technologies to increase energy efficiency by reducing its consumption at machinery and production level, and by recovering it whenever wasted;  Development of advanced emissions abatement technologies; Introduction of a new adaptive management and automation platform to optimize production taking into account not only productivity targets but also eco and energy-oriented ones.

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.
