KT- Kinetics Technology, partner of co-funded EU HiFlex Project to reduce the CO2-footprint of pasta production

KT – Kinetics Technology joined a consortium of industrial companies and research institutes who are now working together to reduce the CO2-footprint of pasta production within the European co-funded HiFlex project. 

KT and NextChem will coordinate and supervise the project as well as provide engineering for the integration of the same. KT as coordinator of the project will manage the consortium dynamics and the relation with the European Commission.

Within the HiFlex project, a unique energy supply system will be built in the next two years near the Barilla pasta factory in Foggia, Puglia. Barilla will use the generated thermal energy for its pasta production to partly reduce its consumption of fossil fuels. The project will demonstrate that it is possible to run a pasta plant 24/7 continuously powering it from renewable sources. Eleven partners from the world of research and industry in seven different countries joined their forces for the project to succeed.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 857768.
