Waste heat is the thermal energy generated by a technical device or system that is released unused into the environment. In times of rising energy prices and dwindling resources, intelligent energy management represents a significant competitive advantage.
Waste heat recovery is important in practically all industrial and commercial sectors. It is obvious in industries whose processes require a lot of heat.
Examples of energy-intensive industries
- Metal processing industry
- Food industry
- Paper and pulp industry
- Wood industry
- Drying plants
- Biomass furnaces
Typical examples of waste heat utilisation
- Building heating
- Hot water heating
- Preheating of media
Depending on the temperature level, there are other types of use. At higher temperature levels, as can occur in industrial processes or from waste gases from incineration plants, we also implement electricity generation by means of an ORC process.
The challenge in creating waste heat concepts lies in finding energy sinks that need the waste heat as useful heat. We minimise the necessary buffer volume for heat storage through cross-plant control concepts, for example by starting production processes in a controlled manner in order to release or absorb heat. The limiting factor is always process-related. With our concepts and solutions for waste heat utilisation, you benefit from our many years of experience and expertise as well as optimal utilisation of your potential. You also make a contribution to climate protection. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
