On the 24th of January 2022, COGNIPLANT joint forces with 5 other SPIRE projects (CAPRI, COGNITWIN, INEVITABLE, HYPERCOG and FACTLOG) and organized an on-line session dedicated specifically to the use-cases addressed by the projects. All these projects have been funded by the European Commission under the topic DT-SPIRE-06-2019 – Digital technologies for improved performance in cognitive production plants (IA). The session was chaired by William Davis, dissemination manager of HYPERCOG project, and saw the presence of Mrs Giuseppina Lauritano, Project officer of all the projects presented.
Each project presented one of its most promising use case.
In particular, for COGNIPLANT, Stefano Ellero, STAM Robotics and Mechatronics Business Area Manager, presented the FORNACI use case, located in Ponte della Priula (TV, Italy), which produces quicklime calcinating calcium carbonate at about 900-1000°C in a kiln and getting calcium oxide and CO2 and how the project is aiming to increase its efficiency and productivity.
The event attracted more than fifty participants, which were highly involved in the final round table with multiple questions and feedbacks. You can see the recordings here.
This being the second event organized with this group of projects, we are aiming to have at least one more final event last year, in which we are going to present the final results and next steps for each action.
