The aim of the project was 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 in the strategy of the region as a priority area.

The project promoter had previously established on his own resources a one module type pilot plant with a production capacity of 30tons/year/shift of aluminium composite and a 60tons/year/shift (200mmx1200mmx50mm) of bulk aluminium foam.

The aluminium foaming technology of Aluinvent Zrt. is capable to produce aluminium foams in a wide range of cell size having uniform cell size distribution which makes the Aluinvent foams unique among the products 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 demands.

During the implementation of the project, based on the positive experiences of the pilot plant operation and the lively interest arose from international industrial and scientific sectors, Aluinvent Zrt. could scale up its technology from TRL7 to a level of TRL9 by establishing a production plant to produce 600mmx1200mm size aluminium foam panels – called Designium – for the building industry having a capacity of 300t/year/shift. Additionally, in the frame of the project the heat treatment and recycling technologies of aluminium foams were developed and adapted to the production line.
