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.
