Most of our energy consumption is heat – not electricity. If we want to battle climate change we also need to increase our energy efficiency with regards to primary fuels. Process industry has much waste heat. This large reservoir of energy is now released in the atmosphere, because there is no technically or economically viable solution to recover – until now. The Qpinch Heat Transformer recovers residual heat from 40 °C and up. It is applicable on a megawatt scale throughout all major industries that use industrial heat, including oil & chemicals, food and feed and paper and pulp.
