Stop wasting money and energy – Invest in a sustainable future now
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 every year. That is enough power to heat 20 million homes.
Our proven and efficient heat transfer solutions enable you to save energy and water, improve heat recovery, and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by maximizing energy efficiency in almost all industries.
Now, we are accelerating our hunt for waste energy to improve existing industries and help you to save energy today.
Calculate how much you can save and get in touch with one of our Energy Hunters today
Do you have a process cooling application where a hot process media is cooled using a cooling system?
Our simplified tool can help you estimate how much energy you can save with waste heat recovery when using our efficient plate heat exchanger technology. You also get an monetary value estimate, with how many carbon dioxide emissions and how much water consumption you will save.
The payback time on an investment in waste heat recovery is usually very low, ranging from a couple of months to a few years.

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.
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.
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.
The Energy Efficiency Movement
What is more sustainable than energy that hasn’t been produced in the first place? That’s why energy efficiency is our ‘first fuel’ for decarbonizing the future. We just need to make it happen. That’s why Alfa Laval has joined the Energy Efficiency Movement.
Join us as part of the open-door initiative to accelerate the implementation of energy efficient solutions. Together we can accelerate the transition to a more sustainable future. Discover what the Energy Efficiency Movement is all about.
