Terraosave Technology recycles thermal energy from industrial emissions
Starklab, an innovative SMU in the field of energy and the Poujoulat Heating and Power division for industrial chimneys, have concluded an ambitious partnership for the development of a new technology for recycling the thermal energy from industrial smokes in Europe. The partnership, signed in between M. Jaouad Zammouri, President of Starklab and Frédéric Coirier, Head of the Poujoulat Group, was officially ratified on December, 13th during the World Efficiency summit, 1st International rendezvous on low-carbon and resource-efficient solutions in Paris.
The Poujoulat Heating and Power division for industrial chimneys is willing to become an actor in sustainable development by offering to its industrial customers a new technology which recycles the thermal energy from the flue gases so as to reduce the quantity of fuel (gas, biomass) used in the process.
This innovative solution developed by the Starklab company uses a new generation direct heat exchanger between air & water, Terraosave, which mixes smokes and water. The innovation is in the thermodynamic mixing process, which pushes the smokes into water so as to collect as much energy as possible, to increase the efficiency of thermal recovery with a very compact solution.
The idea of recycling the industrial smokes to recover thermal energy has never been seen before Terraosave as technical difficulties had to be solved beforehand which had made the process not profitable. The installations of this technology protected by several patents are now profitable within a shortest period, thanks to the thermal energy savings involved.
Poujoulat’s customers will now be able to self-produce a part of their energy and avoid the dissemination of gases in the environment, thus engaging against the existing global warming. The target of this innovative solution are energy centers and industrial process (steam production, combined heating and power, incineration, filtration, furnaces, …) in the United Kingdom, Belgium; the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Poland.
Jaouad Zemmouri presented the Terraosave technology during the World Efficiency Summit on December, 13th in Paris and has insisted on the importance of industrial smokes recycling with Brune Poirson, Minister of state for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition. This presentation was followed by the official signature and explanation of the partnership by Benjamin Laurent, Director of Poujoulat Heating and Power development, on the booth of ADEME (French Environment and Energy Management Agency), co-financier of the technology.
