A new project was started in 2023, named SURE2COAT
It is a Horizon Europe EU project, named SURE2COAT (coordinated by SINTEF Industry)
One of the objectives is to develop new and more sustainable surface treatment methods for complex shaped components to be used in heat storage, water heating and food production applications. The picture below indicates shapes to be used in units for latent heat storage. To reduce corrosion issues, surface treatments shall be integrated into the production process of the parts to reduce energy, materials and transport demand.
