Valorising energy for a better efficiency

Efficient heat generation and distribution play a major role in a energy-efficient society. We are convinced of that. That is why we like to go a step further and valorise as much energy as possible that would otherwise go to waste.

Valorisation of residual heat

This involves using the heat from a process that would otherwise have a temperature too low to be of use. Precisely because this form of energy cannot be used directly, we call it “residual heat”.

We make this residual heat usable by bringing it up to a higher temperature. This can be done, for example, with heat pumps in which the refrigerant absorbs energy on one side (the evaporator side), is compressed by an electric compressor and then releases it again on the other side (the condenser side) at a higher temperature.

This saves not only energy but also CO2. The waste heat that is valorised in this way no longer needs to be generated by a fossil boiler, and the electricity required for the heat pump can be produced by renewable energy sources or high-quality cogeneration.


Heat networks

Not only cities and towns will make strong use of heat networks in the coming years in order to optimise energy production and distribution. In industry, business parks and residential areas too, there is an increasing interest in centralising heat production for ecological and economic reasons.

We will be happy to work out a suitable solution for you, from the production of the heat and its distribution to the various users up to the maintenance of the installations, always in compliance with local regulations.

Connecting to an existing heat network is also an option.

Sustainable production with CHP at Timac Agro

Sustainable production with CHP at Timac Agro

In 2018, Luminus Solutions built a 1200 kWe CHP plant for fertiliser producer Timac Agro in Charleroi. This enables Timac Agro to generate the energy needed to run the factory itself in a sustainable and efficient way and to reduce its annual CO2 emissions by 900 tonnes.
