The CEM-WAVE Revolution is here!

With its official online kick-off meeting in October 2020, the CEM-WAVE project embarked on a journey towards making heavy industries more sustainable.

Barcelona, 19 February 2021 – With a budget of 4,8 million EUR and a timeline of 42 months,  the “Novel Ceramic Matrix Composites produced with Microwave assisted Chemical Vapour Infiltration process for energy-intensive industries”project – CEM-WAVEplans to stimulate the shift to renewable energies within the heavy industry.

Using Microwave-assisted Chemical Vapour Infiltration (MW-CVI technology) to reduce production costs for novel Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) materials, and Artificial Intelligence (AI)-aided modelling research to best predict material behaviour, CEM-WAVE will prototype a small scale sensor-embedded tube to be used in steelmaking radiant tube furnaces.

Since its virtual kick-off meeting jump-started activities on 15 and 16 October 2020, a Consortium composed by 13 partners from five different countries has worked to set the basis for a research journey that might revolutionise the way energy-intensive industry operate. Thanks to the new website, now online, more information is available to anyone interested in learning more about the project.

In particular, a detailed description about the concept, the changes it aims at introducing and the impact it expects to generate is available under the website’s “Project” section. Navigating through the “News” section allows to keep up-to-date with the latest project developments, as well as to browse through thematic blog articles on CMCs applications, the use of microwave technologies within steel processing, and much more.

While the “Events” section of the website collects useful information about interesting conferences, seminars and exhibitions the project consortium might be attending to present CEM-WAVE’s advances, it is within the “Resources” section that their presentations, research articles, project deliverables and press-friendly materials are made available for download.

The CEM-WAVE project is now active also on Twitter and LinkedIN, from where it shares updates and relevant sector communications with the community wanting to take part in its journey, either by following the project or by actively collaborating and participating in it.
