As diverse and complex are today’s product lines, the manufacturing conditions under which they are produced can be just as varied and complex. In addition to electricity, steam, hot water and cooling may be required. With cogeneration plants, these forms of energy can be generated together and thus supplied in a highly efficient manner.
Even companies that do not have a large heat demand can benefit from the advantages of cogeneration if cooling is produced from the surplus heat using absorption chillers. Absorption refrigeration technology consequently offers the ideal opportunity to make economic use of the heat coming from the CHP unit and thus supply the production process with cooling, electricity and, if necessary, steam and hot water.
