Consortium materials technology for thermal energy processes, KME

This consortium is at the forefront of developing materials technology to create maximum efficiency for energy conversion of renewable fuels and waste.

KME, Konsortium Materialteknik för Termiska Energiprocesser, is at the forefront of developing material technology to create maximum efficiency for energy conversion of renewable fuels and waste. KME has its sights firmly set on continuing to raise the efficiency of long-term sustainable energy as well as ensuring international industrial competitiveness.

Because the challenge of implementing environmentally sustainable energy is both complex and vital, KME consortium is financed by the Swedish Energy Agency together with stakeholders from the energy industry, manufacturers of systems and components for energy conversion and material producers.

The programme is operated and managed by Energiforsk.

There are currently 20 research projects within KME's 2014-2018 programme. The projects cover a wide range of research areas, such as the mechanical behaviour and corrosion of various materials, in a high temperature environment. Other research includes investigating and understanding chemical and composite materials and redesigning components. Total programme budget amounts to 13.5 MEUR.
