Turn waste heat into profits
for glass and ceramics
production

The glass and ceramics industry is in a delicate situation: Sensitive production processes rely heavily on increasingly expensive natural gas, but the energy transition to renewables also places pressure on operations and profitability. High temperatures are standard in the production of glass, and hence energy efficiency is a vital lever for both competitiveness and sustainability.


Glass and ceramics manufacturers need non-intrusive solutions to solve this problem, and ENERGYNEST technology provides the missing link. Efficiently utilize waste heat to by balancing supply and demand, and sell excess to nearby steam-consumers with green heat on demand.

Applications recommended for Glass & Ceramics Industry

 

All too often in the industry, valuable high temperature heat cannot be re-used within operational processes and needs to be released as waste heat. Just hours later, at the same site or at the neighbour’s factory, a gas boiler is starting to provide steam for other processes (e.g. process heat, steam degassing) – but now it’s too late to repurpose the lost energy.

Storing waste heat and using for steam on demand is the missing link towards a better solution, making steam available on-demand dramatically reducing plant fuel and operating costs.

Application Benefits

  • Save money easily
  • Reduce CO2 emissions
  • Increase security of supply
  • Limit energy market exposure

 

All too often in industry valuable high temperature heat from batch processes in furnaces, kilns etc comes in stops and starts. Processes to transform this waste heat into valuable electricity such as Organic Rankine cycle (ORC) rely on constant input, leading to further wastage.

Storing waste heat and turning it to power with our storage system is the missing link towards a better solution, enabling constant electricity production using ORC from waste heat. This innovative approach means reducing plant and electricity costs and increasing independence from the grid.

Application Benefits

  • Save money easily
  • Reduce CO2 emissions
  • Increase security of supply
  • Limit energy market exposure

 

Industrial processes are usually not designed for volatility. In order to attain stability, heating of endothermal- or cooling of exothermal processes  must continue round the clock – adding major cost and resource burdens to power plants. But all too often batch processes or interruptions lead to imbalances between supply and demand requiring back-up boilers to start or steam to be dumped.

 

Our steam to steam storage system fills exactly this gap by storing, time-shifting and balancing high- or medium pressure steam to make it available on demand: achieving true balance needed for greener industrial processes.

Application Benefits

  • Decarbonize heat immediately
  • Save money easily
  • Optimize automation
  • Increase security of supply
 
We are always excited to create, design and engineer new solutions completely out of the box together with our customers to meet their requirements. As long as there is heat, steam or electricity without its place, we will store it until needed for 24/7 green energy supply. Get in touch with us to design your custom thermal storage solution for your individual production needs.
