Optimized waste heat utilization in the steel industry with industrial heat pump and low-temperature distribution systemPaper - 20 Jan 2022
To tackle environmental and climate challenges, industry must reduce its emissions, implement energy efficiency and increase flexibility. The steel industry's energy consumption is strongly related to heat pump technologies that produce the necessary amount of heat and steam necessary for steel processing. However, much heat is lost in this process. And what if it could be captured and exploited elsewhere?
Integrated methodology to assess the energy flexibilityPaper - 29 Jul 2021
This paper aims at mapping flexibility strategies and their requirements in the process industry environment. The conception of flex- ibility measures requires a characterization of energy flows, in order to identify hotspots and estimate the flexibility potential. An integrated methodology has been developed with the purpose of supporting investment decisions for a case-study in the paper production sector in Germany.
Enhancing energy flexibility: Paper and pulp case studyPaper - 29 Jul 2021
The paper investigates different flexibility strategies and identifies the requirements for integration in a process industry environment. The analysis is based on a real case-study of the paper production plant UPM, located in Germany.
