Impressions from our stakeholders
"To increase energy efficiency in EU's industry, the utilization of otherwise unused waste heat is one of the most important drivers to reduce CO2 emissions. The DryFiciency project will demonstrate three pilot instalations to apply innovative high-temperature heat pumps to reduce the carbon emissions and energy costs in industrial drying processes at the sites of Wienerberger, Agrana and Mars. The newly developed heat pump technology, supplying up to 160°C, will then be ready to be implemented in other sectors as well to contribute to a clean, innovative and competitive EU industry."
