Hypocarbonic Industry

Hypocarbonic Industry

We develop ceramic processes with a low environmental impact, with a minimum use of fossil materials, as we find ourselves in a context of scarce resources and increasing energy needs. To this end, we research and design manufacturing processes with lower energy consumption and greater efficiency, trying to incorporate renewable energies, both for the generation of electrical and thermal energy.

Decarbonisation is a key point: we research the incorporation of alternative fuels and seek to decarbonise processes through the electrification of gas equipment.

We are also investigating the use of fuel cells in manufacturing processes and CO2 capture and reuse. In addition, we continue to work on the optimisation of cogeneration systems.

With the LIFE HYPOBRICK project we aim to help to decarbonise the economy by developing unfired waste-based building materials, through a process of alkaline activation. Furthermore, the raw materials used are waste generated, both in the ceramic manufacturing process and from other sources. These actions would mean an exceptional saving of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, both from the reuse of waste and from the energy saving, by not using the traditional firing process.
