LIFE - HEAT-RWelcome
On September 30, the World Day of Reflection and Debate was organized by the ESADE Chair of Leadership and Democratic Governance, led by Prof. Àngel Castiñeira. Under the motto Are we in time? Business leadership to transform the world the day focused on the 2030 agenda and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
On October 2, Dr. Raúl Aragonés gave the inaugural conference of the 26th academic year of the Salesian University School of Sarria (EUSS).
Our president, Dr. Raúl Aragonés, and our CEO, David Comellas, have attended the LIFE platform meeting on climate change mitigation in energy intensive industries in Utrecht, the Netherlands (26-27 September 2018).
The meeting is hosted by LIFE OPTIMELT (http://lifeoptimelt.com/announcement.htm), a project that is recovering waste heat in glass manufacturing, and is organised in cooperation with the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) and the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Climate Action (DG CLIMA).
The two-day gathering included plenary sessions on the policy context, industry commitments and technological solutions; workshops; a poster session; and field visits to the OPTIMELT project at the Libbey Leerdam glassware factory and Tata Steel’s Horizon 2020 project, HIsarna, both in the Netherlands.
On March 15 we participated in the 8th edition of the Tech Demo Day organized by La Salle.
Together with 50 other startups, we had the opportunity to present our technology and, most especially, our HEAT-R project, a European LIFE project in which we will deploy different heat-electricity conversion pilots.
Today we have participated in the IQS Tech Festival, an event in which some thirty startups have participated, with an attendance of about 3000 people and that has been held in the emblematic Damm Factory in Barcelona.
A very special event for us because it was the first time that we spoke in public of our LIFE Heat-R project, which, by the way, generated a lot of excitement.
