Waste Heat: An Opportunity for Energy Efficiency

Clauger aims to help manufacturers optimize their energy use to meet their needs. It takes a “Green Label” approach to energy management, ensuring sobriety at an industrial site level and environmentally conscious operations.

Récupération et valorisation des rejets fatals

Clauger, thanks to its experience as a refrigeration specialist, has worked for many years on optimizing the Coefficient of Performance (COP) of its installations, taking into account the needs of operators.

In recent years, Clauger has added an additional dimension to its efforts to decarbonize by focusing on recycling waste heat. This allows significant secondary gains with two objectives: reducing energy consumption and decarbonizing.

Clauger’s added value is its capacity to recover and reuse the gas or liquid waste generated by a production facility.

In the first case, Clauger focuses on different types of gaseous emissions, whether they are hot and dry (boiler exhaust) or hot and humid (drying, dehydration, cooking applications). Through its heat exchanger technologies (cyclonic exchangers from the Aireco range), Clauger can reintroduce this thermal energy into the process.

Lowering the temperature of a discharge can lead to a decrease in relative pollution and should be considered an essential first step in the abatement process.

Another possibility that Clauger exploits is the recycling of grey water, which can be used to generate energy in certain cases and depending on the customer’s process.

Clauger’s offer combines various inputs, such as the energy demands of a site, energy costs, available waste heat and process requirements, to propose an efficient solution with a measurable ROI (Return on Investment) to manufacturers. In addition, Clauger provides potential financing solutions associated to the proposed solution.

As energy prices fluctuate and the challenges of energy become more crucial, Clauger offers interesting solutions through recycling and reusing sources of energy that are still often overlooked and untapped.
