Waste Heat Recovery


A waste heat recovery is a process to recover heat from hot streams of energy from gases, water and/or cooling towers. An exhaust gas stream (with temperatures above 250°F)  has significant potential to recover wasted heat.

Examples of recovery opportunities include:

  • Plant process heating
  • Combustion air preheating
  • Boiler feedwater preheating
  • building heat.

In addition to savings in everyday fuel consumption, many facilities can market and sell carbon credits back to industry.

State and / or federal funding is often available for waste heat recovery projects helping to reduce capital costs and expedite system payback.
