Reuse waste energy and invest in a sustainable future

Energy efficiency is in our DNA. It is something we have been developing for almost a decade. In fact, Alfa Laval's heat transfer solutions save 100 GW of energy in industry every year. That is enough power to heat 20 million homes.

We have found that there is always room for reusing waste energy by changing the cleaning and maintenance program or updating the configurations. Watch the video and learn how Alfa Laval can help.

Now, we are accelerating our hunt for waste energy to improve existing industries and help you to save energy today.

We provide online calculators to help you estimate energy saving

Our simplified saving calculation tools can estimate how much energy you can save when using our efficient plate heat exchanger technology, either by ensuring they are serviced optimally or by reusing your waste heat. In addition to the energy saving you will also get a monetary value estimate, as well as a calculation of the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions and water consumption.

Optimized service could hunt back waste energy from 8000 kWh per year, and the payback time on investment in heat recovery is usually very low, ranging from a couple of months to a few years.

Value of Reused Waste Heat

Do you cool your hot process media using a cooling system? Our online calculator can estimate how much waste heat you could hunt with one of our heat exchangers. It can even tell you how much you could save in carbon emissions, water consumption, and overall costs. Click the below button to start saving.

Our recent waste energy hunting projects in the industry


Industrial waste heat recovery

Recovering industrial waste heat is one of the most effective ways to improve energy efficiency on a global scale. By recovering energy that would otherwise be lost to the atmosphere or water and reusing it for other purposes, we can greatly reduce fuel consumption compared with today’s levels. As a result, we can also drastically reduce global carbon emissions.

Energy balance

Papermaking requires huge amounts of energy to maintain the heating and cooling processes the industry requires. Finland-based UPM-Kymmene, Europe’s biggest forest industry group and one of the world’s largest paper manufacturers, has fine-tuned the balance between heating and cooling processes, resulting in surplus energy.

Steam recovery

Sappi Maastricht paper mill, the Netherlands, needed to replace their shell and tube heat exchanger which was frequently leaking. In addition it was difficult to access and expensive to maintain. AlfaCond solved the problems.

Sulphuric acid heat recovery

Economic and sustainability gains with sulphuric acid heat recovery. Following a total reconstruction of the cooling system at the Kemira sulphuric acid plant, the temperature of the cooling water has been raised to a level at which it can be used for district heating.

Waste heat recovery

With the right heat exchanger technology, you can recover high temperature heat generated by industrial processes, as well as lower temperature heat captured by heat pumps in, for example, data center cooling or water treatment applications. This heat can then be used for applications ranging from district heating to producing electricity.
