Waste-to-heat recovery or heat integration is a process that uses waste produced by industries and reuses it to provide hot water, heating, and numerous energy sources. It is a sustainable method as waste is processed into a renewable energy solution that can generate low-carbon electricity.
Often, waste can be utilized and re-processed to have a purpose. Waste heat comprises energy discarded or released into the environment. It can be extracted from equipment, operating inefficiencies, and thermodynamics restrictions on equipment methods.
Currently, less than 50% of the overall energy used in industries comprises waste heat. A significant percentage of the wasted energy is low-temperature heat transferred to the atmosphere from fin-fan coolers, flue gases, and cooling water. Waste heat recovery technologies capture the heat that is usually wasted and supply it to a process or a device where it can be used economically, effectively, or to preserve energy.
Various waste-to-heat recovery technologies and methods are used in petroleum refineries and chemical industries. Older buildings and plants often have numerous opportunities to execute heat recovery strategies.
Waste-to-heat recovery technologies have also been efficiently used on ships. The waste-to-heat system comprises an exhaust gas boiler or merged with an oil-fired boiler, a steam or power turbine, and an alternator. The boilers can be accommodated to fit the systems, such as the efficiency of the ship engines.
Over 80% of the energy discarded as heat during manufacturing processes can be cost-effectively retrieved and used again. Waste heat recovery technologies are increasingly recognized in many businesses to improve energy productivity. Companies have an opportunity to use smart resources to make up the country’s energy mix.
At MMG Engineering Private Limited, we use waste-to-heat recovery systems to retrieve thermal energy and convert it to electrical energy. Our engineers and researchers design the most efficient methods for energy conservation. The process generates thermal energy that can be directly re-used in refrigeration, pre-heating appliances, upgrading to a higher degree of heat, and electricity conversion. The excess heat can be used in making steam and hot water for various industrial uses.
Recovery methods that employ waste-to-heat are essential for energy conservation in most chemical process plants. By reusing waste, industries can minimize their CO2 emissions and energy costs. The waste heat recovery process is a sustainable approach to improve the energy utilization of the combined power and heat. It is also a remarkable low-carbon method to get clean heating sources for urban housing and industries.
Waste heat minimization is an excellent step to lower energy bills and towards a greener future. It is also an intelligent way to cut maintenance costs and increase equipment productivity because energy-using equipment can run with lower intensity.
Several industrial facilities are upgrading their energy efficiency by installing waste-to-heat recovery systems. However, these technologies are currently not being implemented to their full capabilities due to many barriers, including material restrictions and maintenance expenses.
The installation cost and hiring experts to set up the waste-to-heat system can also be a deterrent. But it’s crucial to remember that traditional energy generation methods are greatly risky. Not only are they harmful to the planet, but they also have an expiration date. While the initial costs of shifting to waste-to-heat energy are high, there is undoubtedly empowerment in generating your own energy and cutting costs in the long run.
