European Climate and Energy Modelling Platform 2022

ECEMP conference brings together Europes climate and energy modelling community. The three-day event will feature a balanced mix of high-level panel discussions and interactive workshop sessions. Conference is planned again as an online event due to uncertainties regarding the possibility of physical meetings. The original EMP-E was created in 2017 and has since been organised on a yearly basis by the H2020 Energy Modelling group - a group of projects funded by the European Commissions Research and Innovation Programme. Projects contributing to the conference have received funding from the European Unions Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme. Themes include: Day 1: Energy security and geopolitics for fossil and low-carbon fuels Day 2: Innovation, societal and technical changes for Net Zero Day 3: The latest IPCC findings and implications for national and short-term

Energy recovery solution for waste water with payback less than 1 year

Treating wastewater in Australia produces three million tons of sludge which must be treated and disposed of. The process is responsible for 50% of the total operating costs of wastewater treatment plants. A new treatment technology would reduce the amount of waste by a third also recovering energy from the sludge itself.

How waste heat recovery will change the landscapes

The ETEKINA project has reimagined a decades-old technology called heat pipe heat exchangers. The technology allows companies to re-use the heat they generate. So far three sites that installed the prototype technology have slashed their fuel costs by 40%.

The transformation of energy intensive industries

The ETEKINA project aims to recover 57-70% of the waste heat stream in energy intensive industries which up to now just go out of the chimney. The new heat pipe heat exchangers are an efficient tool to recover heat from industrial processes.

Deep decarbonisation of industry: The cement sector

Fossil fuel combustion to meet heating needs accounts for 35% of cements CO2 emissions. The remaining 65% are due to direct process emissions, which must also be addressed. By 2050, cement production in the EU is expected to remain below pre-2010 levels.
