Waste water heat recovery
Waste water contains energy that can be used in buildings for heat and indoor cooling. It is a hidden energy potential that is currently not being used. By implementing the technology we have developed, it is possible to reduce energy costs and CO2 emissions, as well as the dependence on external energy suppliers.
The device is intended for energy supply, functioning as a provider of heating, hot water, and indoor cooling in houses, industrial facilities, food factories, etc. It requires a connection to a waste water line. The demand for heating and cooling is not simultaneous, and waste water serves both as a supplier of energy and as its accumulator. The operating efficiency of the device can be calculated as a sum of the heat energy transferred to the building and the heat energy transferred as part of indoor cooling, divided by the electricity consumption required to power these processes.
The operating cycle of the heat pump can generate two energy resources: cold and heat. Both of them are necessary in the production of food. The waste water resulting from the production process has energy potential and energy storage properties.
