Living Lab Metal Power

The successful realization of the combustion system of 100 kW in the first Metal Power Project raised the question if the combustion installation for iron fuel can be optimized and scaled up. In January 2020 Living Lab Metal Power started to answer this question.

Combustion demonstration system

Within the Living Lab, together with end-users, a 0,5 to 1 MW combustion demonstration system is being developed, evaluated and rolled out to warmth-intensive industries. The project budget contains 3.7 million euros. Next to the development of the demonstration system the project aims to spread knowledge and to rollout the results so new partners are attracted to become a part of the realization of the Living Lab. This way open innovation-ecosystems arise in which partners can develop and embed the Metal Power-technology. Within the ecosystem the development of adjacent projects and implementation processes have the highest priority.
