OTTAWA, ONTARIO – October 16 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 leading European meat processing company, to install an innovative heat recovery system.
The FLU-ACE® heat recovery project, valued at over $738,000, is designed to improve site efficiency and sustainability. The project is expected to provide a utility saving of over $614,000 per year, delivering a strong return on investment and a simple payback of just over one year.
Upon commissioning, the system will recover heat currently lost to the atmosphere and use it to displace steam used for heating wash-down and process water. The approach is estimated to decrease fuel usage by more than 15% and reduce carbon emissions by over 5,200 tonnes annually. This is a CO2 saving equivalent to removing over a thousand cars from the road or replacing nearly 200,000 incandescent light bulbs with LEDs.
The commission is the latest in a series of measures the pork processing company is taking to improve fuel use and reduce its carbon footprint and follows the installation of Thermal Energy’s high-efficiency, low maintenance GEM™ steam traps at its flagship site.
“Meat processing plants are high energy users with heat required for multiple stages of the production process as well as for hygiene purposes.” Said William Crossland, CEO of Thermal Energy.
“With an estimated 50% of all industrial energy lost as waste heat, this subsector of the food and beverage industry represents a key global growth market for the Company and holds 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 ENDSFor media enquiries contact:Marketing@thermalenergy.comFor investor enquiries:Investors@thermalenergy.comAbout Thermal Energy International Inc.
