Decadom: solutions for monitoring manufacturing defects

IMT Mines Albi and its corporate partner Diota launched the “Inspection 4.0” joint laboratory in 2016 to detect and analyze part manufacturing defects. In 2020, the Decadom project was launched. This initiative has developed inspection solutions based on the use of a scanner hand-held by an operator or mounted on …

Plastic waste: transforming a problem into energy

Déchets plastiques, plastic waste

The linear life cycle of plastics, too rarely recycled, exerts a heightened pressure on the environment. The process of gasification makes it possible to reduce this impact by transforming more waste – currently incinerated or left in landfill – into useful resources like hydrogen or biomethane. Javier Escudero, process engineering …

An oasis of waste reconverted into ceramic materials

Déchets verre, waste

Transforming industrial waste and unused by-products could make it possible to respond to issues of scarcity for civil engineering resources, recyclability and even reducing use of fossil fuels. Doan Pham Minh, process engineering researcher at IMT Mines Albi, explains several avenues for recycling and reusing materials explored by his work. …

Carbon-free hydrogen: how to go from gray to green?

hydrogène décarboné carbon-free hydrogen

The industrial roll-out of hydrogen production only makes sense if it emits little or no carbon dioxide. Researchers at IMT schools are working on various alternatives to the use of fossil fuels, such as electrolysis and photocatalysis of water, plasma pyrolysis of methane, and pyrolysis and gasification of biomass. Currently, …

Power-to-gas, when hydrogen electrifies research

Hydrogen is presented as an energy vector of the future. In a power-to-gas system, it serves as an intermediary for the transformation of electricity into synthetic methane. The success of this energy solution depends heavily on its production cost, so IMT researchers are working on optimizing the different processes for a …
