Energy Recovery & DHC

FREE Workshop - Check the potential of your waste heat!

One day – two platforms: The EMB3RS/R-ACES Team will be hosting a workshop on 29th March 2023 in Berlin or Lisbon to experience the features of the innovative heat and cold matching platform EMB3Rs and to test the Energy Management Platform (EMP). EMB3Rs platform links excess heat and cold energy sources with DHC networks and other sinks. EMP is an ICT-tool that makes energy flows transparent, allows energy consumption and production to be allocated to specific installations, stakeholders and nodes, and also identifies anomalies and opportunities.

Energy recovery solution for waste water with payback less than 1 year

Treating wastewater in Australia produces three million tons of sludge which must be treated and disposed of. The process is responsible for 50% of the total operating costs of wastewater treatment plants. A new treatment technology would reduce the amount of waste by a third also recovering energy from the sludge itself.
