Come mith us at MIX.E – The low-carbon energy mix event in Lyon!

Our project exhibited at MIX.E – the low-carbon energy mix event, in the “Europe in Action” section devoted to EU-funded projects, held at the Cité internationale in Lyon, France, on April 10 and 11, 2024!

Represented by Damien Serret from our project partner, TEMISth (Technology leader for high performances thermal systems), this event was a great opportunity to promote collaborative projects that help accelerate Europe’s transition to clean energy and decarbonization by bringing cutting-edge technologies to market in energy-intensive industries, renewable energies, green hydrogen, energy storage and more!

Energy specialist, manufacturers, local and regional authorities, researchers, funders & institutions: on the way to systems that are more autonomous, efficient and sustainable, but also – and the word is in everyone’s minds – more virtuous…

The DESOLINATION project presented at Advanced prototyping solutions meetings 2024!

The DESOLINATION project presented at Advanced prototyping solutions meetings 2024!

On April 9 and 10, our project was presented by our partner, TEMISth, at the 12th edition of the Business Convention for 3D printing, additive manufacturing, rapid prototyping and product development held at the Double Mixte convention center in Lyon (France), as part of the APS (Advanced prototyping solutions) meetings.

Represented by Jean-Michel HUGO, CEO of our project partner, TEMISTh (Technology leader for high performances thermal systems), this event was an excellent opportunity to promote the DESOLINATION project and to present their advanced manufacturing solutions for thermal management, as well as CNC and FSW additive assembly.

On Wednesday morning, Jean-Michel gave a talk on “Additive manufacturing applied to energy efficiency: the use case of the H2020 DESOLINATION project”.



Zoom on the event…

The Business Meetings dedicated to Additive Manufacturing in France offers suppliers the opportunity to connect with Contractors from various sectors such as aerospace, defense, automotive, electronic, rail, medical…

With its unique concept based on pre-selected and pre-planned 40 minutes BtoB meetings, APS Meetings is the most efficient way for businesses to network and engage cooperation: from equipment acquisition to R&D and Engineering services, through additive manufacturing and prototyping sub-contracting services, including raw material supply.

Zoom on TEMISTh…

Since 12 years TEMISTh supports big companies in the developmement of innovatives solutions from the design and the simulation of a complex physics to the manufacturing of prototypes and small series of heat exchangers, heat sink or cold plates.

Their team gather experts in CFD simulation, from air flow to supercritical heat transfer ; FEA for mechanical analysis ; heat exchanger design ; advanced manufacturing and experimental measurements.

TEMISTh is also developing its own solution such as heat recovery for sCO2 brayton cycle.

Join our “New developments in membranes” online workshop

Join our “New developments in membranes” online workshop

In the last days, our project member, Prof. Frank Lipnizki from the Department of Chemical Engineering of Lund University (Sweden) has had the opportunity to organise a workshop on “New Membrane Developments” with some great international speakers.

The online workshop is free-of-charge and took place on Thursday 7th of December from 9:00 – 11:00am.

The aim of the workshop is to provide an overview on recent developments of membrane with focus on water and wastewater. For this, the LUND team has invited some of the leading researchers in the field from Japan, Egypt, India and Sweden.

Membranes are the centre of all the stages of the desalination process, nanofiltration (NF) pre-treatment, Forward Osmosis (FO) and Membrane Distillation (MD) processes. In DESOLINATION, modelling and small-scale testing activities will target the optimization of all steps of hybrid membrane separations. First, NF membranes will be used to reduce fouling and scaling effect in FO. Then, the FO separation membrane will be fine-tuned to ensure control over high water flux in combination with low reverse flux from the draw to the feed solution and thus maximize the efficiency and use of the osmotic pressure difference between the seawater and the draw solution. Lastly, the MD separation membrane needs to optimize the removal of pure water from the draw solution and must therefore be adapted to the chemical and physical properties of the draw solution designed for thermal heat recovery, as well as to the temperature and pressure conditions required for the VMD recovery process.
