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.
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.
