Steam Recompression


Innovation image

Heat surpluses are an important challenge within the chemical industry. To tackle this issue, a pilot project of the Dutch company Trinseo Netherlands B.V. uses a smart and integrated solution that reduces the surplus of low pressurized steam and increases the total efficiency of energy generation. As an effect, less natural gas is being burned up and less CO2 is being emitted. By effectively using energy waste within a circular chain, the entire site's energy use decreased by 15 percent. The pilot project proves that the production of chemical products can both be cost-effective and more environmental-friendly, which increases the competitiveness of chemical industries.
