About our project.
Low-grade heat waste (-70 °C) is often widely present in several ENERGY INTENSIVE INDUSTRIES, however it can be hardly valorised using conventional technologies (e.g. Organic Ranking Cycles). Conversely, some innovative technologies (Waste Heat Recovery System-WHRS) are emerging and can provide further energy improvement and CO2 savings.
The overall objective of HEATLEAP is to implement a number of technologies suitable for different EII (Energy Intensive Industries), to test them in a real-scale industrial environment and demonstrate their environmental and economic benefits.
Innovative Large Heat Pump (LHP) with a size of up to 7MWth output (combined with the existing heat exchangers), able to supply to district heating temperatures up to 120°C and characterized by a COP between 5 and 8, thanks also to an innovative working fluid.
