For industries that utilize large quantities of fuel and electricity to produce process heat -- and the concomitant large amounts of exhaust heat -- waste heat recovery may reduce energy consumption and yield cost savings. Is your process a candidate?
Waste heat has been with us since the dawn of the industrial revolution. In countries where energy has always been relatively expensive, there has been an effort to reduce costs and minimize waste. In the United States, the interest in conservation has been driven primarily by periodic spikes in energy costs. Today, there is renewed interest and many opportunities for industrial processors to reduce their energy costs.
