Decarbonize your heating processes

Heat to Cool - industrial heat recovery

Industrial Heat Recovery – the road to a carbon neutral plant

Nowadays, the heat pump is quickly becoming the technology of choice by industrial manufacturers scrambling to meet ever-stricter environmental rules, reduce CO2emissions as well as their operational costs. Indeed, major food manufacturers are now starting to see the significant benefits of using heat pumps in their production processes, especially those that require the application of heat during preparation and subsequent chilling.

Heat pumps convert renewable or waste energy from buildings and processes to provide heating. For example: during cooling, refrigeration systems emit heat from a condenser, which is simply released into the environment. The heat pump captures this valuable resource and then boosts the temperature to produce heat suitable for other production purposes. When a heat pump is combined with a refrigeration unit, both cooling and heating are possible, turning one-time use into a continuous cycle.

How it works

Even wondered how a heat pump works in the production process? Our heat pump expert explains in just a couple of minutes how it makes your production process sustainable. Check out this video.

What that means

Utilizing heat pumps can result in up to 70% increase in heating performance, 90% reduction in CO₂ and NOx emissions, huge costs savings from reduced energy usage and a significant reduction in water consumption. All applications can reduce the size of boiler and condensing equipment. In some cases, the boiler can be turned off completely or omitted from a new build.

GEA RedGenium heat pump

GEA raises the bar for standard heat pumps to +95⁰C/203⁰F

GEA Heating & Refrigeration Technologies continues to consistently expand its heat pump portfolio. The GEA RedGenium heat pump combined with the brand new GEA Grasso V XHP reciprocating compressor enables the provision of temperatures of +95⁰C/203⁰F at the best efficiency.
Natural refrigerants

GEA chooses natural refrigerants

GEA strongly believes that refrigeration and heating systems with natural refrigerants are predestined to meet the growing global demand for cooling and air-conditioning. Why? Because they are climate-neutral and cost-effective. GEA relies on the climate friendly refrigerant ammonia (R717, NH3), because of its global warming potential (GWP) & ozone depletion potential of zero.
