7th project meeting DESTINY

On November 22nd and 23rd, 2022 the 7th project meeting for the SPIRE project “Development of an efficient microwave system for material transformation in energy intensive processes for an improved yield” (DESTINY) took place at Keraben in Nules (Spain) and at the Universitat de Valencia. A new reduction process based on a microwave process is to be developed in an international consortium of 14 partners from the cement, ceramics and steel industries. Tests are carried out on a pilot plant. The new process is expected to require less expensive raw materials and less energy than other reduction processes. This reduces investment and operating costs as well as CO2 emissions. The meeting was combined with a tour of the pilot plant at Keraben.
