The money will also be allocated to projects aiming to phase down the use of natural gas for heating.
GEA’s custom heat pump installation at the Mars facility has reduced total energy consumption by 6% and contributed to a reduction of more than 1,000 tons of CO2e per year.
The German manufacturer has fitted a truck with its latest products, like ammonia compressors, and embarked on a year-long trip around Europe.
A Sabroe ammonia heat pump will boost the district heating capacity at Vattenfall’s Berlin-Buch combined heating and power plant, avoiding 620 metric tons of CO2e a year.
A new plan published by the Scottish Energy Advisory Board emphasizes heat pumps as key to decarbonization efforts, but plans are hampered by U.K. electricity charges.
The heat exchangers can raise the evaporation temperature of the ammonia refrigerant on the cold side and lower the condensing temperature on the hot side, increasing the energy efficiency, says Alfa Laval.
The installations are mainly in Europe, but GEA is experiencing increasing interest in natural refrigerant-based heat pumps in North America as well.
The RedGenium and Red Astrum heat pumps have been successfully implemented in Europe.
Meat processing facilities face significant challenges in reducing energy costs and emissions due to the need for high temperature heat in their processes. This event will detail the latest innovations available to meet the needs of this industry and options for transitioning. This interactive meeting will include discussion heat recovery opportunities and methods for calculating…
The company seeks to accelerate a ‘swift transition’ in the use of low-GWP refrigerants like CO2 and ammonia in heat pumps and refrigeration systems.
