The novel heat pump technologies developed and demonstrated within the
DryFiciency project aim to achieve usable process temperatures of 80 to 150ºC
which is of relevance for several industrial sectors such as e.g. paper,
textile, or food processing industry.
In line with the EU 2030 Climate and Energy Targets and the Energy
Efficiency Directive (2012/27/EU), DryFiciency will reduce CO₂ emission by 40% and
increase the energy efficiency in energy-intensive industrial processes.
Furthermore, DryFiciency will support the industry in complying with the new
F-Gas Regulation limiting the total amount of fluorinated gases sold (e.g. for
heating & cooling systems) and phasing them out to 2030.
In a nutshell, DryFiciency´s Key Performance Targets
To improve energy
efficiency by up to 80%,
2. To reduce production cost by up to 20%/kg,
3. To reduce CO₂ emissions by 57 to 73%,
To validate the individual
components and their integration within a fully
functional industrial heat pump system in industrially relevant environments,
To achieve the
targeted energy savings leading to an acceptable high return on investment
(ROI) for industry,
business models, appropriate IP protection and exploitation plans to ensure
post project rollout of the integrated technological solution.
