Capitalizing on Hidden Assets: The Significant Energy Potential in Waste Heat with Armstrong International Circular Thermal℠
The first law of thermodynamics states that energy is neither created nor destroyed, maintaining a constant quantity in a system. When energy is utilized, often through conversion, it degrades into a lower quality form. This begs the question: how does degraded yet undestroyed energy exit an industrial plant?
Waste heat, while being of lower quality, retains a significant quantity of energy. Studies indicate that 50 to 80% of primary energy used in light industries becomes waste heat at medium or low temperatures when leaving the plant. Thus, up to 80% of this energy is recyclable.
By incorporating Armstrong International's Circular Thermal℠ model into industrial processes, we can recapture and reuse this waste energy.
