SOLAR ERA.NET project SLAGSTOCK meeting in Erlangen
The progress meeting of the SOLAR ERA.NET project “Low-cost sustainable thermal energy storage system made of recycled steel industry waste” (SLAGSTOCK) was held at the Institute of Biomaterials, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, on 3rd May 2017, organised by Dr. Jasmin Hum and Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini. SLAGSTOCK is a FP7 funded European network of national and regional funding organisations and RTD and innovation programmes, with academic and industrial participants from Germany, Spain, France and Switzerland. In Germany the project is supported by the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWI). In particular, SLAGSTOCK project aims to develop an innovative thermal storage concept making use of steel slags as storage material. Our Institute is involved in the material characterisation of the new thermal storage systems being fabricated.
