CEN Workshop Agreement on ' Experimental characterization of the hybrid heat pump module' - open for public consultation

Industrial processes are often energy-intensive and the need for their efficient decarbonization is now at the forefront of governmental and corporate policies worldwide. However, solutions for the green transition of the industrial sector should be flexible, widely applicable, and reliable. Two-thirds of industrial energy consumption is related to heating and cooling processes and is becoming a major environmental problem. The integration of renewable thermal energy sources at industrial sites is therefore crucial.

CEN Workshop on 'Preparation of nanocatalysts for non-oxidative dehydrogenation (nODH) of light alkanes'

Although good catalysts for nODH of alkanes have already been provided, there is still a need of additional ones with high catalytic conversion, activity and selectivity, and/or with a catalytic conversion. The selection of certain metals in combination with other elements, all of them stabilized with particular organic compounds and adsorbed on porous supports, gave rise to highly active catalytic surface areas that, in addition, not only are selective for propene selectivity in nODH, but also are highly stable and free from the main drawbacks of other catalysts for the same reaction (i.e. coke formation, by-side deactivating reactions, etc.).

CEN Workshop on 'Mediation Grammar: a standard to enable migrants integration'

The CEN Workshop (CEN/WS) will develop a CWA aimed to provide a user-centred summative and formative testing methodology for public sector bodies and agencies willing to measure the extent to which local public service delivery (including offline and online modes) empowers refugees and regular immigrants in the fulfilment of their integration goals and in so doing, ultimately enables a full exercise of their acknowledged citizenship rights.

EN 50388-1:2022: A new important step to manage electrical compatibility in railways

Ensuring the electrical compatibility between rolling stock and electric traction systems is crucial for organizing a railway network. The train operating companies must be able to know the electrification parameters to confirm, after consultation with the rolling stock manufacturers, that risks of non-compatibility are minimized and that there will be no consequential disturbances on the electrification system.
