Heat recovery in the industry - Results from Europe
The #EuropeanCommission spends billions on research about #EnergyManagement in #Industry. The results are obviously disseminated, after all, it is public money. I’ve myself worked in these energy dissemination projects for 13 years. An example is the #recovery of #WasteHeat and its useful application. There are several up to date resources about this for various kinds of industrial sectors.
What is the problem? Energy represents up to 20 % of the total production costs for energy intensive industries in Europe. However, despite significant technical progresses in reducing energy consumption, much energy is still lost in the form of waste heat. For example it is still difficult to find good and not too expensive technologies to recover heat losses and to use it again, but also to transform this heat so it can be actually used.
