Project description

The overall goal of this project is to show the economical use of heat pumps in industrial environments. A high temperature heat pump is to be developed aiming at upgrading process heat by the use of unavoidable waste heat. Making this available will decrease the excess of waste heat into the environment and reduce the energy demand for energy intensive industries like.
