Heat PipE TECHhnology for Thermal Energy Recovery in INdustrial Applications
(ETEKINA)

CASE 1: Process Industry representative of the non-ferrous metals 

  • Main project scope:
    Reuse waste heat from heat treatment furnaces to heat air during the artificial aging heat treatment process.
  • Based in Spain, case led by fagor ederlan taldea (FED)

CASE 2: Process Industry representative of the steel sector

  • Main project scope:
    Utelisation of waste heat from the heating furnaces to allow preheating of the combustion air.
  • With a properly optimised system, the final energy savings could be maximzed from 1,100MWh to 1,495MWh
  • Based in Slovenia, case led by sij metal ravne (METAL).

CASE 3: Process Industry representative of the ceramics sector

  • Main project scope:
    Utelisation of waste heat from the exhaust of the kiln, to heat air in the dryer stage
  • Based in Italy, case led by Ceramiche Atlas Concorde Spa (CON)
