Don’t think of it as waste – it’s energy in waiting

16 August 2011

All over the world companies and governments are investing billions to develop new sources of energy in the form of biofuels, solar and wind power and traditional fossil fuels. Yet, according to heat transfer specialists, Alfa Laval Limited, all of them could save time – and money – simply by getting much more out of the energy they already consume.

According to the International Energy Agency most companies use up to 50% more heat energy than they need to as a matter of course. Yet, with the right technology, most, if not all, of that heat is recoverable says Alfa Laval. And the volumes involved wouldn’t be insignificant. Some authoritative sources claim that the amount saved would be equal to three times the total current output of the global nuclear industry. 

Alfa Laval has produced an informative, fact-filled booklet. Waste Heat Recovery - Optimising your energy system, that spells out the potential benefits; highlighting where energy is most likely to be wasted; how to recover it and recycle it to reduce energy consumption; how to profit from greater energy efficiency and how to transform waste heat recovered from one source into productive heat for another.
