ICCS will lead the development of the Feedstock Adaptation Agent (T3.4). The Feedstock Adaptation Agent is an AI based component that will be a part of TRINEFLEX decision support system. It will enable processes optimization based on the qualitative characteristics of the feedstock assuring increased feedstock sourcing flexibility and leading to reduction of the raw materials dependency. Additionally, ICCS will define the methodology for “green ICT” constituting a part of the monitoring framework which will be developed as a part of T1.5 to create monitoring plans for each demo case and process. The analysis will concern the cost of procurement, the power consumption at the collection and data exchange steps, as well as the possibility for software adaptations for further improvement.
