FACOEE: competitive manufacturing through energetically efficient process
This project, developed in collaboration with Befesa Aluminio, Nervacero, Bs-tech Rolling Mill and Tecnalia technology center, aims to develop innovative technologies to increase energy efficiency in industrial furnaces. Specifically, it focuses on these two areas of action: -Recovery of secondary aluminum in rotary furnaces, through:
- Multi-door system that reduces temperature loss, prevents re-dipping and allows a greater use of the load, all this decreasing the casting time.
- Regenerative burners that minimize metal oxidation
-Reheating of steel billets in walking beam furnaces This project, FACOEE, has been co-financed by the SPRI, Business Development Agency of the Basque Government.
