The company uses a solar concentrator with a patented giant Fresnel lens to transform waste into valuable materials recovery. This innovation addresses the global need for efficient and sustainable waste management. The SME is looking for an industrial partner to develop and manufacture the industrial pilot (TRL8) of their solar concentrator and is targeting an open call from the EIT Raw Materials.

With this project, the primary goal is to scale-up their current prototype to an industrial level (from 2mx2mx3m machine to 15mx15mx14m). This project will include: the design and the manufacturing of our solar recycling machine. The application of the machine is to transform waste into an inert material, suitable for the construction industry as well as for the glass industry, thus contributing to sustainable waste management and recycling. The point is to get from a TRL7 to a TRL 8-9.

They are looking for an industrial partner to collaborate. The collaborative project, which focuses on advancing a solar concentrator technology to market readiness, has a budget of €2 million. This budget underlines their commitment to achieving significant technological milestones and ensuring a rapid transition to commercialization.

To finance this project, the company is targeting European funding more precisely EIT Raw Materials for Upscaling Projects (KAVA 12). This call offers funding to collaborative projects composed of partners from the industry and research and education. Upscaling KAVA projects are innovation projects based on validated technologies that need additional step(s) for testing, demonstration, proof of concept and up-scaling prior to commercialization. The purpose of these projects is to support good technologies, products, and services that are currently under development to reach market entry.
