HyCool: Industrial Cooling through Hybrid system based on solar heat, is a project co-funded by the European Union, related to the “LCE-12-2017 (IA): Near-to-market solutions for the use of solar heat in industrial processes” call, starting on May 2018 with a duration of 36 Months and a budget of 7.74 M€. The consortium is composed of 16 partners from 6 different countries and is coordinated by the company Veolia Serveis Catalunya.
The main aim of the project is to increase the use of Solar Heat in Industry Processes by coupling of a new Fresnel CSP Solar thermal collectors (FCSP) system with specially build Hybrid Heat Pumps (HHP).
The developed technology will be validated in two real demo sites located in Spain.
CNR ITAE role:
Support in the development and experimental validation of the HHP for cooling and refrigeration in two industrial sites.
