The SisAl Pilot project has been funded by the European Commission under the H2020 Funding Programme, topic CE-SC5-07-2018-2019-2020 “Raw materials innovation for the circular economy: sustainable processing, reuse, recycling and recovery schemes”.

It aims at demonstrating a patented novel industrial process to produce silicon (Si, a critical raw material), enabling a shift from today’s process to a far more environmentally and economically alternative: an aluminothermic reduction of quartz in slag that utilizes secondary raw materials such as aluminium (Al) scrap and dross, as replacements for carbon reductants used today.

The first-call consortium of 22 partners online met on June 11-12 for the kick-off meeting and officially started the project activities!

CiaoTech is partner as Dissemination and Communication WP leader.

Stay tuned for updates!
