TechnipFMC signed the renewal of its strategic partnership agreement for innovation and technology development with the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA).
For the eighth consecutive year, the CEA has been ranked in the Top 100 Global Innovators thanks to its proactive intellectual property policy. It is the only French research body to appear in the Clarivate 2018 list.
The first-ever tool to study the pressure exerted by granular material on the walls of the tank containing the material was developed by Liten. The tool will be used to dimension and make improvements to dual-media thermocline-type thermal energy storage systems.
A system that injects light into glass was modified for automatic doors. The doors can now be customized, offering an extremely affordable medium for visual communication.
A study of the impacts of various pollutants present in hydrogen on fuel cell performance and lifespans was completed, and the results will aid in the development of international standards.
A method based on a model of human memory has made it possible for neural networks to learn incrementally. This advance will open the door to new possibilities in the field of autonomous systems.
The first power-to-gas demonstrator unit built on technology developed by the CEA was commissioned a few months ago. The early results are very encouraging for the future of the technology, which could play a major role in facilitating the integration of renewable energy into our grids.
Year after year CEA Tech events in Asia are gaining momentum. The third CEA Tech Days, held on October 16 and 17 in Tokyo, brought in nearly 400 participants, more than 90% from industrial companies. The event was followed by the second Leti Day in Hsinchu, Taiwan, with 140 participants, 70% from industry.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
