The Cell3ditor project wins the innovation prize from the FCH JU AWARDS 2018

Cell3ditor project, led by the group of the ICREA Prof. Albert Tarancón at IREC, wins the innovation prize from the FCH JU AWARDS 2018. Congratulations!

The ambitious goal of the Cell3editor project is to develop ‘tabletop factories’, in the form of 3D printers which can make monolithic solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) stacks with embedded functionality. This is a great opportunity to achieve product flexibility, simple design for manufacturing and slash the time-to-market, waste material and manufacturing steps (shaping and thermal treatments). In addition, lowering initial investment by an order of magnitude will open the SOFC market to new players that will boost the supply chain and generate new high-skill jobs.

The Cell3Ditor project is coordinated by the Fundació Institut de Recerca de Energia de Catalunya (IREC). It has the support of the Joint Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Company of the European Commission, an entity that has the objective of contributing to research activities such as this, thus accelerating the entry into the market of this type of technological creations. The project consortium is formed by companies and research institutions from 6 different EU countries: 3DCERAM (FR), Promethean Particles (UK), FAE (ES), SAAN Energy (SE), HyGEAR (NL), DTU (DK), ULL (ES).

IREC will be present at Smart City Expo World Congress

IREC will be present at the Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC 2018), participating in the Smart Cities event, a meeting point for intelligent city sectors and an innovative platform for urban action worldwide.

IREC will be at SCEWC 2018 from November, 13th to 15th at Stand 19 of Generalitat de Catalunya, Hall 2 D413, presenting some of our products: Low energy districts modelling tool, Energy Aggregator, iEnergy Box, HVAC economizer and the RESCCUE tool for resilient cities.

Likewise, will actively participate co-organizing the Workshop on “Low energy districts in the GrowSmarter project” in SCEWC, in collaboration with other partners of H2020 GrowSmarter project. We will be glad to welcome you and meet you at this open workshop! SmartCity Expo in Barcelona at the Ajuntament de Barcelona: Room 1.1 CC1 on November 15th from 9h00 to 11h00.

We look forward to seeing you in SCEWC 2018, November 13th to 15th. You can't miss it!

Science Week 2018: "Print your Energy" at the IREC

In the framework of the 23rd Science Week, an initiative dedicated to the dissemination of science, the IREC will organize next November 9th at 10h a workshop led by Dr. Marc Torrell and Dr. Marc Nuñez, both of them researchers of the Nanoionics and Fuel Cells group, will bring the research developed in the IREC laboratories through 3D Printing closer to the society.

3D Printing is mainly known for its application in plastics, but it has already reached the metallic materials and ceramic materials. The IREC researchers, focused on this research, coordinate different projects where this technology is applied to manufacture devices such as fuel cells, sensors or catalytic reactors, printing different functional ceramic materials.

The participants can use 3D printers based on different technologies and visit the hybrid printer developed during the project. Also, the researches lines will be explained and the most outstanding results.

Fun and interesting experiences coming soon.

Come to join us how 3D printers work when ceramic materials are applied, and see the applied technologies and the results of the research that we do into the IREC.

The workshop is free, but registration should be made at the following link (limited places according to the room's capacity).

We look forward to seeing you at the IREC next November 9th, 2018 at 10h. You can't miss it!

IREC organizes the workshop "Introduction to Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEB)" at the School of Engineering of Barcelona East - EEBE (UPC)

Next October 10th at 12am the "Introduction to Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEB)" will be held at the School of Engineering of Barcelona Este - EEBE. The objective of the session is to introduce to the engineering students what is a nZEB building and which are its characteristics. The design and operation challenges to achieve an efficient buildings stock will be presented, as well as some best practices.

The workshop is organized by the working group formed by IREC, LEITAT, EURECAT, CIMNE and the Catalan Energy Institute that collaborate together for the promotion of nZEB buildings. In addition, it has the support of the Fluid Mechanics Department of the UPC.

For more information, visit the Workshop Programme (registration not required).
