OTTAWA, ONTARIO – August 22 2019 – Thermal Energy International Inc. (“Thermal Energy” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: TMG), a global provider of energy efficiency and emissions reduction solutions, has been commissioned by a multinational food-products corporation to install a turn-key, energy-saving heat recovery system
The FLU-ACE® heat recovery project, valued at approximately $1.4 million, is designed to improve efficiency and reduce emissions at the manufacturer’s infant milk processing plant. Upon commissioning, it will recover and reuse energy currently lost through the boiler’s exhausts, to provide heat for the pasteurizing, fermentation and drying processes on site.
The project is part of a company-wide commitment to improving energy efficiency and minimizing emissions, with the installation expected to deliver both pollution prevention and pollution control.
Analysis shows it could improve fuel use by up to 12%, equating to an annual energy saving of up to $570,000. Carbon emissions will also be reduced by up to 2,610 tonnes, as will end-of-pipe particulate matter by between 50% and 90%. This is the second energy-saving initiative the site has embarked on with Thermal Energy, the first being a full site conversion to the Company’s high efficiency, low maintenance GEM™ steam traps in 2017.
Originally the manufacturer was looking to recover energy from the dryers located on site. However, due to the level of heat required and emitted by the boilers, Thermal Energy’s calculations showed a better return on investment would be achieved by installing a specially designed FLU-ACE® system on the boiler exhausts. Final sign-off for the project was secured following site visits to observe the technology in operation at both a brewery and a hospital facility.
“This project, with one of the five largest global food and nutrition manufacturers, is a clear example of how adaptable our propriety products are for a range of applications. At the same time, it demonstrates how we apply our engineering expertise across various industries and applications to determine the optimal project for the customer” Said William Crossland, CEO of Thermal Energy.
“The commission combines our extensive experience in both the dairy and medical nutrition sector and highlights the diversity of the food and beverage processing market as a whole. This is something we are harnessing as part of our strategic growth strategy, with the sector holding significant potential across the full range of Thermal Energy’s solutions including FLU-ACE®, GEM™, HEATSPONGE and DRY-REX.”
The scope of this order covers all design, construction, installation, commissioning and training for the system. The project is expected to be completed and revenue earned within nine months.
