WP4 Process Heating

Of the total energy used in industry approximately 2/3 is for industrial process heat of which approximately 30% is in the temperature range from 0-200˚C. The main sectors with heat demands in this range include the food processing industry, chemical industry, textile industry and the building products industry. Both energy efficient heating and cooling are required and significant scope for carbon savings exist by using alternative heat generation technologies, energy recovery or (for batch processes or with varying loads) thermal energy storage.
