Data and decentralized Artificial intelligence for a competitive and green European metallurgy industry

The Green Deal will make Europe the first climate-neutral continent in the world. To do that, European industries must contribute to a greener and more sustainable Europe, which is specifically recognized in a new policy for a climate-neutral and circular industry. Among the energy-intensive industries, the metallurgy industry poses a major challenge due to the tradeoff between maintaining economic profitability and progressively implementing the required transformations for greener production.

The mission of the ALCHIMIA project is to provide sustainable and competitive metalworking industries in the EU with a platform to support the transition to high-quality, competitive, efficient, and green production processes with the guarantee of high-quality products in the steel-making industry. ALCHIMIA will find an optimal mix to reduce energy consumption, emissions, and waste generation in the steel-making process while also guaranteeing the production of high-quality products.
