GEA NEXUS Holistic Engineering Solutions

A unique integration of process solutions and cooling & heating demands, resulting in lower energy consumption, minimized operating costs and reduced carbon footprint.

NEXUS - Holistic Engineering Solution

As an intensive energy user, the large-scale production industry needs to be at the very forefront of net-zero activities. The need is there. The intent is there. And together with GEA, you can take real action to get there. You can start growing greener with GEA NEXUS Holistic Engineering Solutions.

Rolling towards a greener future

The future is looking brighter, and we have marked the beginning of the end when it comes to the use of fossil fuels with United Nation’s agreement to ratchet up climate action before the end of the decade. We now have the world’s first “global stocktake” to shift to sustainable resources. The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) encourages companies to take strong action on climate change by setting goals for reducing their greenhouse gas emissions. We are here to help you reach those goals.

How do you grow, profit and become greener?

The short answer: Get in touch with our GEA NEXUS team.

Getting serious about your decarbonization journey, while also ensuring a solid profit margin, sounds like a contradictory challenge. But as we all know – a challenge is also an opportunity. An opportunity to take a step back and look at the bigger picture - look at your entire production setup. The biggest win can be found in the smallest detail, so the trick is to find the different paths to upgrade plant performance whilst downsizing consumption and carbon footprint.

GEA NEXUS is a holistic approach to efficient, resource-saving and reliable production processes that can be implemented with limited or no downtime and ensures a fast return on investment.

How to make your energy last longer

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 50% of the energy cost of food processing.

More than 90% of your factory’s heat demand can be met through upgraded waste heat. The use of heat pumps can potentially eliminate your boiler, and reuse waste heat from your refrigeration plant to satisfy different heating requirements within your process.

By implementing energy-efficient refrigeration and heat pump solutions utilizing natural refrigerants such as ammonia, GEA can improve your energy efficiency by up to 40% for heating and cooling.
