The SisAl pilot partners gathered in Santiago de Compostela for the M24 progress meeting, hosted by CITMaga, at the Faculty of Maths. The consortium discussed the results achieved so far in all the project work packages and planned key actions to be implemented in the next period.

SisAl Pilot is a 4 year project funded by Horizon 2020 (GA 869268) and it aims to demonstrate a patented novel industrial process to produce silicon (Si, a critical raw material), enabling a shift from today’s carbothermic Submerged Arc Furnace (SAF) process to a far more environmentally and economically sustainable alternative: an aluminothermic reduction of quartz in slag that utilizes secondary raw materials such as aluminium (Al) EoL scrap and dross, as replacements for carbon reductants used today.
