COPRO - ASM participates in the COPRO project whose kick-off was held on November 23rd and 24th.

Horizon2020 SPIRE project COPRO Kick-off Meeting in Brussels.

Brussels – 40 Representatives from the 17 partners of the CoPro consortium and from the European Commission met for the project kick-off in Brussels on November 23rd and 24th, 2016. In the upcoming 3.5 years, large and small companies, research institutes and universities from eight European countries will jointly work on improving resource and energy efficiency in the process industries by better coordination of production.

The HORIZON 2020 project CoPro – “Improved energy and resource efficiency by better coordination of production in the process industries” which is led by Prof. Sebastian Engell (Department of Biochemical and Chemical Engineering of TU Dortmund), has started on November 1st, 2016.

The aim of the project is to develop methods and tools for better management of industrial plants and chemical parks under dynamically changing market conditions with the goal to save energy and resources and to improve the competitiveness of the European process industries. The CoPro consortium receives funding of 6 million € from the European Commission under the SPIRE public private partnership until the end of April 2020.

The technical developments are motivated by the practical needs of industry and will be demonstrated in five different use cases from various sectors of the European process industries. At the sites of COVESTRO and INEOS in Cologne the coordination of production processes of base chemicals will be improved. At Lenzing, Austria, the leading European manufacturer of cellulose fibers, complex evaporation and recycle networks of their wood-based production process will be optimized. Further use cases come from FRINSA, a Spanish food packaging company, and from Procter & Gamble. Several leading small and medium enterprises will develop new computer tools for process modelling and process management.

The stimulating discussions during the two day meeting provided an excellent start into an ambitious project that will contribute significantly to the sustainability of the process industries in Europe.

MEDRAR - Improvement of wastewater treatment in small villages

START DATE: 11/02/2016. END DATE: 11/30/2018

The general objective of the MEDRAR project is the development and experimental demonstration of an innovative and sustainable wastewater treatment system for small towns through a modular system, which will be adapted to the characteristics of the flow to be treated and to the criteria for discharge or reuse of treated water.

It is applicable to urban wastewater or grey and black water and for small population centers or small urban/industrial agglomerations that have separate networks, as well as for those that do not have such systems.

It is proposed as a more sustainable alternative to the current systems used in small towns, often deficient, inoperative or unfeasible due to the operational costs involved, adapting to the peculiarities and conditions of each nucleus that allow energy self-sufficiency and water reuse, thus reducing the costs of drinking water and wastewater.

Currently, a modular adaptive control and decentralized monitoring system has been implemented with web access from any device and security system through encrypted communication between the Server and the Wastewater Treatment Plants.

SF4SF - Plant integration of emerging technologies for the detection, elimination and management of food risks

R&D Project

The main objective of the SF4SF project – In-plant integration of emerging technologies for the detection, elimination and management of food risks – is to increase the production efficiency of food processing plants and the food safety of processed products. Our objective was to develop an application to manage and integrate food risks in plant information systems.

All this, through the integration of faster, more sensitive, effective and sustainable emerging technologies for the detection, elimination and management of microbiological and allergen risks in the plant.

This project has been developed with the aid granted by the Center for Industrial Technological Development (CDTI) of the Ministry of Industry, Economy and Competitiveness, and has been co-financed by the European Union (ERDF Funds) through the Smart Growth Operational Program (2014-2020), in the framework of aid for regional cooperation in research and development (ERDF Innterconecta Program).

The SF4SF project involves the participation of a consortium of four companies formed by CLAVO FOOD FACTORY, S.A. (leader of the consortium), ASM Soft, Kemegal and Nanoinmunotech, and with the collaboration/participation of the research organizations ANFACO, University of Vigo and the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory.

The participation of ASM Soft. in the SF4SF project, awarded on 20/11/2015, has been developed between 2015-2018 and has had a budget of 251,857€. The place of execution of the project has been the facilities of ASM Soft (Vigo) and Clavo Congelados (Caldas de Reyes).

As a conclusion of the project, a MES 4.0 platform has been developed that collects all the information from the production plant, integrating productivity data (Metrics, Consumption, Batches, etc.) with Quality Control, Food Risks and with the ERP business management.
