Stirling heat pump for high temperature industrial use

Project description

Turning up the heat efficiently and sustainably

Industrial sectors around the world rely on heat for a myriad of uses including washing, drying, sterilising, process heating and so much more. Demand for heat accounts for most of the industrial energy demand as well as significant global energy consumption, and it contributes to increased emissions. In particular, the demand for high-temperature process heat is on the rise, and it is primarily fuelled by conventional boilers. The EU-funded Highlift project is developing an innovative high temperature heat pump to make industrial processes greener. The system will take in water warmed to low temperatures by waste heat recovery processes and heat it with electricity to produce steam. The technology promises to slash energy consumption and emissions and have a tremendous impact on this huge global sector.
