Energy Assessment Reveal Waste Heat Recovery Opportunity

Kinergetics specializes in waste heat recovery strategies for the process industry. An assessment at a Wisconsin paper mill revealed high temperature whitewater being discharged to drain. After identifying the potential value, Kinergetics was contracted to prepare a preliminary design and detailed cost estimate, and assist the mill with a Capital Funds Authorization. Mill Management stated that due to internal time constraints, “This project would very likely not have moved forward were it not for Kinergetics involvement.” The project was approved by Corporate, for an annual fuel savings of over $80,000 and a simple return of approximately 1½ years.
