Industrial processes, industrial facilities

Your challenges

  • To improve competitiveness by reducing your energy and water consumption.
  • To reduce the environmental impact of your company.
  • To recover waste heat available in your site in a more efficient manner.
  • To optimise the incorporation of renewable energies into your energy mix.

Our strengths

  • Proven track record in energy/mass integration and industrial process modelling and in energy prospection and medium-term scenarios.
  • Sectorial know-how as well as on-field knowledge, at the heart of industrial processes.
  • Optimisation and decision-making assistance software platforms: PHOENIX, to design heat and mass exchange networks, as well as heat production and recycling systems (heat pumps, ORCs, etc.); and ETEM, for the medium-term economic optimisation of the energy mix and the study of the integration of renewable energy sources.

Our offer

  • Mapping of energy and mass recovery potentials within the industrial site.
  • Technical-economic optimisation of the design of heat and mass exchange networks on your process.
  • Design of new means of production of heat and cold, as well as heat recycling systems (heat pumps, ORCs, etc.).
  • Design of processing units.
  • Study of the medium-term profitability of a new energy mix, taking into account a prospective energy price scenario.
