Factory-ECOMATION project foresees a new development in the production scenario in which integrated assessment of environmental benefits, health benefits and energy efficiency are based on quantitative and reliable key parameters. Such an assessment will be the key factor in determining quality of service associated to material production and product manufacturing.
Factory-ECOMATION methodological approach aims at comprehensively addressing such problems by developing inter-operable methods, scalable tools and technologies at process/machinery level in a unique framework. Its overall solution will be proven on two different industrial fields that are normally faced separately and independently, despite the fact they cause very similar problems.
The focus of the project will be on two industrial sectors, relevant for European economy and crucial to achieve the EU 20/20/20 objectives:
- The iron&steel industry, a highly energy intensive industry;
- The woodworking industry, a high carbon footprint industry;
On the whole Factory-ECOMATION is expected to produce the following results:
PROJECT EXPECTED RESULTS
|A dramatic improvement in consumption phases is expected from the combined efficiency coming from different areas involved within the project.Such improvement areas are:
|Improvements in reduction of process emissions are expected with reference to the following areas:
