Dr. Christian Wieckert mit Prof. Boccaccini

Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini participated at the last progress meeting of the EU Project “Low-Cost Sustainable Thermal Energy Storage Systems Made of Recycled Steel Industry Waste” (SLAGSTOCK) which was held on 4th May 2016 at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) in Switzerland, hosted by Dr. Christian Wieckert of Solar Technology Laboratory at PSI (pictured with Prof. Boccaccini). SLAGSTOCK is a SOLAR-ERA-NET project supported by the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMW) involving academic and industrial partners in Spain, Switzerland, France and Germany. SLAGSTOCK project aims to develop an innovative thermal storage concept making use of steel slags as storage material and our Institute is involved in the material characterisation of the new thermal storage systems being fabricated.
