It is time for new updates from BAMBOO.
The project is currently in the phase of demonstration of the novel technologies and the partners are starting to achieve great results. It is the case of the mineral sector, where Grecian Magnesites, has obtained significant pollutant reduction in their process thanks to the use of a novel burner combined with the cofiring of 50% of biomass.
In the plant of UPM, of the paper sector, the partners are assessing the different strategies for electric flexibility management and the stability of the grid system when the plant is used as a virtual battery.
The two technologies demonstrated in the steel sector, with ArcelorMittal leading these tasks, are progressing towards their final results. For waste heat recovery, the demo facilities are being commissioned for testing the novel High-Temperature Heat Pump, and in the case of the flame monitoring systems, the predictive model has started its phase of validation after the test campaign.
For Petrochemical Sector, the partners are currently assessing the strong requirements to install an ORC in the Tüpras facilities. The activities from now on will be focused on the replicability of this technology in the petrochemical sector and in other intensive industries.
