The aim of the project is the development of green capacities in the lagging behind region of Northern Hungary at an industrial site, in topic of materials science which area is defined both in the call for proposal and the in the strategy of the region as a priority area.

Previously to the project the project promoter, on his own resources, estabished a one module type pilot plant with a production capacity of 30 tons/year/shift of aluminium composite and a 60 tons/year/shift (200mmx1200mmx50mm) bulk aluminium foam.

The recent TRL7 level aluminium foaming technology is capable to produce aluminium foams in a wide range of cell size and having uniform cell size distribution. This solution makes the Aluinvent foams unique amoung the foams of the competitors. This is the first reliable and reproducible quality aluminium foam which can be applied as structural elements and its properties can be designed upon customer demans.

Based on the positive experiences of the pilot plant operation and the lively interest arised from international industrial and scientific sectors, Aluinvent Zrt. is intending to scale up its technology to a level of TRL9 by establishing a production plant to produce 600mmx1200mmx50mm size aluminium foam panels having a capacity of 300t/year/shift. Additionally, in the frame of the project the heat treatment and recycling technology of aluminium foams will be developed and adapted to the production line.
