Making the most of energy resources: how can you improve the efficiency of your production cycle?
April 14, 2021
One of the main drivers to increase efficiency is the installation of a cogeneration system in which a boiler recovers and enhances the thermal energy contained in the exhaust fumes generated by the main engine. This type of application is called High-Efficiency Cogeneration.
High-Efficiency Cogeneration, in accordance with the directive 2004/8/EC of the European Parliament, is defined as the production of electrical (or mechanical) energy combined with the production of heat.
A cogeneration solution can save up to 30% of primary energy compared to the separate production of electrical (or mechanical) and thermal energy for the production process. In accordance with the directive, cogeneration plants can access the incentive scheme relating to Energy Efficiency Certificates.
The cogeneration plant, through primary energy savings, can reduce global atmospheric CO2 emissions by reducing the environmental impact of the production process.
Like all generators in our portfolio, heat recovery boilers are designed and built to support specific customer requests. We ensure maximum reliability and flexibility; our boilers can achieve the highest efficiency level, making the most of energy resources (electrical and thermal energy) and maximizing the thermal energy recovery of a cogeneration plant.
How to maximize heat recovery
Our heat recovery boilers are the technological solution to maximize heat recovery from internal combustion engines or turbogas. The heat of the hot fumes is recovered to generate further heat in the form of steam, superheated water or diathermic oil, thus maximizing energy recovery.
- Maximum energy efficiency
- Reduction of energy costs
- Reduction of consumption in production processes
