Where goods are produced, energy is consumed. This applies to industrial operations producing in shifts and whose machines are therefore running all night and even on weekends. The conditions could not be more suited to the use of combined heat and energy production: The continuously high energy demands, consisting of electricity and thermal energy, of manufacturing businesses makes combined heat and power by 2G their ideal partner.
Combined heat and power for the manufacturing industry
Efficiency that creates new opportunities
The high efficiency of 2G CHP systems is the key to its success, up to 90% of the primary energy is used effectively, meaning that more energy is saved during production providing significant financial savings on energy costs.
Chemical and pharmaceutical companies
Chemical and pharmaceutical companies generally use large amounts of energy as they require heating, cooling and electricity continuously throughout the day and night. A 2G CHP can provide a cost effective solution to provide the vast amounts of energy required.
Energy costs are the second highest cost involved in feed production. Cleaning processes are responsible for a significant proportion of these costs, followed by the different processing stages at different temperatures and the mandatory cold chains. The energy demand constitutes perfect conditions for the application of a combined heat and power system from 2G.
Synthetic materials industry
Besides consuming a significant amount of energy, the processing of synthetic materials also produces it in the form of high temperatures that are created by drilling and milling as well as during other processes. To avoid a loss of quality and an excessive material wear due to overheating, constant cooling is required. Combined with an absorption cooler, a 2G CHP can provide the required energy while being incredibly cost-efficient.
In order to produce paper, heat and steam is required in large amounts. Considering these two facts, it is especially beneficial for this industry to invest in combined heat and power because it provides financial savings and increases profit.
From milling to electroplating machines - an astonishing variety of machines with high energy demands is involved in metal processing. A specifically conceptualised combined heat and power system by 2G provides the exact type of energy required and even enables particular thermal oil applications.
Good planning is half the battle
For a successful investment, the right planning of the CHP system is essential. With the right degree of utilisation, the investment will be amortised within a few years and can therefore sustainably increase the company's competitiveness.
This self-produced energy also shelters you from the impact of rising energy prices and used as emergency power generator the system can uphold production during power outages.
