SO WHAT visits Martini & Rossi’s demosite

Last November 15th, SO WHAT project partners from Environment Park and RINA visited Martini & Rossi’s (M&R) Pessione plant in Turin, Italy, where all the products of the company, such as Martini, sparkling wines and liquors, are produced.

This industrial site is particularly relevant for the SO WHAT project, since many heat recovery options are already in place and thus it represents a challenging situation for the project to test its efficacy. In addition, a remarkable amount of thermal processes, including heat and cold, are in place during the production of the beverages.

M&R is currently implementing different waste heat recovery processes and the integration of renewable energy sources (RES) – solar thermal collectors – is ongoing, which turns them into an optimal test case for the analysis of RES integration and its direct impact on the production.

As one of SO WHAT’s demosites, M&R will test and validate the project’s tool to analyze those Waste Heat and Cold valorisation processes.

So What Upcoming workshop and panel!

The SO WHAT project is holding a Design Thinking Session at the YUST hotel in Antwerp, Belgium, on the evening of Tuesday, December 10th!

This event aims at bringing together European players active in the energy and industrial sectors, public authorities, ESCOs, and energy agencies.

Participants will help to define, via a participatory approach, the requirements for an integrated software to audit and map energy processes and to recover heat and cold wasted to match local demand.

In addition, there will be a networking session with drinks after the workshop, so that all the assistants can meet and interact with stakeholders.

The event is free upon registration through this link: http://bit.ly/SOWHATworkshop

And on the following day, December 11th, we are participating in the panel Smart District Heating networks as part of smart cities, at the Provincial Government Building in Antwerp.

This conference is part of the event Smart District Heating in Antwerp and it is intended for everyone involved in heating, both from the public and private sectors. The session will count with the participation of top speakers from Ireland, the Netherlands, Germany, and Denmark. 

Don’t miss this chance and join us there!
