Recovering the waste energy emitted by refrigeration systems

Recovering the waste energy emitted by refrigeration systems

Waste energy or heat is effectively the energy generated by an industrial process with a completely different primary purpose. This energy is often lost unless it is recovered and/or reused. The aim of this call for projects issued by ENGIE Axima in partnership with the French Food Industry Association (Association Nationale des Industries Alimentaires or ANIA) is to identify new ways of recovering and reusing the waste energy generated by food industry refrigeration systems. Although only 10-15% of this energy can be easily recovered today, the aim is to make maximum use of this heat energy source, thereby creating value for the industrial customer. The cutoff date for submissions is December 31, 2016.
