Many production processes generate waste heat in the form of exhaust gas. Often, this heat is simply released into the atmosphere and goes unused. The heat, however, contains a large energy potential which can be used for generating cold via adsorption technology: Both for cooling manufacturing processes, and for air conditioning the production facilities in order to create a more pleasant and productive room climate for the workforce.
Creating Cold from the Heat of Exhaust Gases
In foundries, plastic extrusion facilities, paint shops, laminate manufacturing, or in many other thermal manufacturing processes—adsorption cooling enables re-using this heat for cooling without electricity.
In general, this requires the heat to be transferred to water, typically via exhaust gas heat exchangers.
