In the chemical and pharmaceutical Industry large amounts of steam and heat are used for various applications: heating, processing, drying, cleaning, disinfection, etc.
At pressure drops as small as 0.6bar an Energy Module could be placed parallel to a pressure reduction valve and convert this unused energy
With a production volume of 150 billion euros, the chemical industry is the fifth largest industry in Germany. In the chemical and pharmaceutical production processes, a lot of steam is generated and consumed. This results in many possibilities for the application of our technology for energy recovery.
From pressure drops as low as 0.6 bar and up, the ENVA energy module can be connected as a bypass to a pressure reducing valve, thus generating electrical energy from previously unused steam energy.
By connecting the Energy Module as a bypass, your existing process is not affected in the event of a fault. The patented ENVA process is based on the use of a rotary lobe blower as an expander, which can, with its compact and robust design, handle a wide range of steam qualities. A rotary lobe blower is extremely robust compared to a turbine.
Depending on the application, an amortization period of less than 3 years is generally the rule. By applying our technology, you may also be entitled to the energy tax reimbursements, or energy efficiency grants which can make the economics even more attractive.
