Projects outcomes will enable achieving the objectives of the Processes4Planet partnership, and the transition of the process industry towards climate neutrality, by developing new electrified processes, ensuring process flexibility, and capturing the full potential of renewable energy (related to P4Planet operational objective 1).
High temperature (over 400 °C) industrial heating systems, powered by fossil fuel combustion, are responsible for 20% of process industries GHG emissions. The topic focuses on the sustainable electrification of high temperature heating systems, for example, industrial furnaces, kilns and crackers among others. Electrification of these heating systems with renewable electricity could represent a major reduction of the related GHG emissions.
The proposals should:
The inclusion of a GHG avoidance methodology is recommended and should provide detailed descriptions of baselines and projected emissions reduction.
Proposals submitted under this topic should include a strong business case and sound exploitation strategy, as outlined in the introduction to this Destination. As a project output a more elaborated exploitation plan should be developed including preliminary plans for scalability, commercialisation, and deployment (feasibility study, business plan and financial model) indicating the possible funding sources to be potentially used (e.g., Innovation Fund, InvestEU, ESIF). Societal and environmental impact and implications for the workplace (such as skills, organisational change) should be outlined.
Research must build on existing standards or contribute to standardisation. Where relevant, interoperability for data sharing should be addressed.
Proposals should build on or seek collaboration with existing projects and develop synergies with other relevant European, national or regional initiatives, funding programs and platforms and are encouraged to consider the use of their expected outcomes in a wider approach that might benefit the establishment of Hubs for Circularity.
This topic implements the co-programmed European partnership Processes4Planet.
