SEnS-GEA’s Sustainable Engineering Solutions

Sustainability is a major challenge nowadays, for all of us. In a world where more and more people are moving to urban centers and disposable income is increasing steadily, demand for better food and medicines is on the rise. To cope with that growing demand, we need large-scale industrial production to provide safe, high-quality food. Globally, water and energy are becoming increasingly scarce commodities and environmental norms are becoming ever stricter. That’s why we need efficient, resource-saving and reliable production processes.

Energy efficiency plays a key role in achieving sustainability in process industries

SEnS – Sustainable Engineering Solutions

Energy efficiency plays a key role in achieving sustainability in process industries. So, not surprisingly, it’s high on your agenda and on ours. Heat production and subsequent chilling account for roughly 60% of the energy cost of food processing. That’s because food, beverage and dairy processors require precise temperatures to ensure optimum product quality. By implementing energy-efficient refrigeration and heat pump solutions utilizing natural refrigerants such as ammonia, we can improve your energy efficiency up to 70% for heating and cooling.

Now is the time to act, together

We’ve made it our mission to find ways to lower your energy consumption, minimize your operating costs, and reduce your carbon footprint. By combining our expertise in both process technology and utilities, GEA offers efficient solutions to meet your energy challenges. Our team of experts design tailor-made solutions and implement them into detailed engineering, incorporating utility functions into your production processes in a smart way. This enables you to lower your energy usage and operating costs up to 30%, cut CO2 and NOx emissions by up to 90%, reduce water consumption, potentially eliminate your boiler, and reuse waste heat from your refrigeration plant to satisfy additional heating requirements within your process.
