CELL3DITOR

A Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) is a ceramic-based multilayer device that involves costly and time-consuming multi-step manufacturing processes including casting, screen printing, start-up, shaping, and several thermal treatments. In addition, these cells are manually assembled into piles resulting in additional steps for bonding and sealing, making product standardization and quality control difficult. Since current processing of ceramics has strong shape limitations and an extremely complex design for manufacturing (more than 100 steps), industrially manufactured cells and SOFC cells are expensive and have low flexibility and long time to market. The main objective of the Cell3Ditor project is to develop a 3D printing technology for the industrial production of SOFC batteries, covering research and innovation at all stages of the industrial value chain (inks formulation, 3D printer development, ceramic consolidation and system integration). FAE participates as partner developing the process of consolidation of ceramics and contributing with its experience in the manufacture of cells for fuel cells.

Ris3Cat COSIN

The project is aimed at developing the necessary actions to become an international scientific, technological and industrial reference in synthetic fuels based on biogenic carbon and water. The project aims to cover the fundamental need for current and future energy systems to be able to store energy as chemical energy by solving the problem of how to store renewable energy on a large scale.

FAE participates in the development of systems more efficient systems of electrolysis and co-electrolysis.

RIS3CAT REFER

The REFER project aims to improve the available energy alternatives for buildings, providing them with flexibility with several options to face the generation of renewable energy and energy efficiency. Keeping in mind that the great challenge of society is to improve the energy efficiency of existing buildings more than in new buildings, whom is easier to incorporate new technologies and knowledge, the REFER project focuses on the energetic and flexible rehabilitation of residential and tertiary buildings through the installation of solar panels and fuel cells, where FAE is involved in the design and production of fuel cells.

The scope of the project includes participation in Smart Grids, the use of "Low Carbon Technology" and energy efficiency, which are the three pillars of the community.

SCAPE-SOFC

The goal of the project is to develop a new solid oxide fuel cell technology that will be able to feed auxiliary power units (APU) for the automotive sector. In particular, the project aims to develop an industrial scale manufacturing process of 100Wel stacks based on SOFC cells, which should be capable of operating at intermediate temperatures (T = 700-800°C) while being fed with H2 or CH4.

NHIBRID

The project’s objective is the development and implementation of a hybrid additive technology which will allow for a novel electronic device manufacturing process. Such process is intended to be based on a single equipment unit and to combine 3D printing  - through use of DLP (Digital Light Processing) of ceramic material – with 2D inkjet printing, wherein the ink comprises the drivers circuitry components necessary for the electronic component to be developed.
 




 

FRACTAL

Development based on an Advanced Systems Spanish Technology for the Prototyping and Manufacturing of Strategic Components by means of Laser Assisted Powder Sintering.

The main objective of the project is to generate new AM forms which are oriented to large size components. Currently existing solutions are not covering this range of applications due to size, processing time and/or cost issues. Fractal seeks to combine both the opportunity to generate variable spots - by means of defined energy densities - and a novel solution powder deposition. Thereby, productivity, efficiency and processing time ratios are improved substantially.
