The EU Horizon 2020 funding programme aims to support the transformation process of energy-intensive manufacturing industries towards carbon neutrality in 2050. In the joint project FORGE, four key challenges (H2 embrittlement, corrosion, abrasion, and mechanical and thermal damage) and four key technologies (cement, steel, aluminium and ceramics production) are addressed.
The project objective at HTL is the development of novel coatings to reduce the thermal and corrosive degradation of the refractory material in a tunnel kiln. The focus is on metallic and ceramic coatings with complex entropy-stabilised compositions, so-called Compositionally Complex Alloys CCA or Ceramics CCC. The compositions will be developed by a combination of AI and ML methods, computational chemistry, thermodynamic considerations and high-throughput experiments. For in-situ sensing, luminescent elements will be added.
