Industrial Goals

Common industrial goals to reach by implementing the proposed technologies are:

  • 60% reduction in process time, to enhance production throughput and cut down costs;
  • 15-20% cost reduction, to increase competitiveness on the market;
  • 50% energy reduction, to improve sustainable production and reduce energy related costs;
  • achieve new microstructures not accessible by conventional technology;
  • improved technical performance of the newly produced materials (“sustaining” innovation);
  • open new markets by lowering price of CMC products, displacing conventional materials from their traditional fields of application and enabling new products to enter (“disruptive” innovation).
