Industrial Process Heat

Industrial Process Heat

Most industrial process heat requirements today are met with fossil fuels like Coal, Furnace/Fuel Oil, Diesel, Biomass, LPG/CNG etc. Of these, relatively cleaner fuels like Diesel, Furnace Oil and LPG cost the most per unit of heat delivered.

However, as these fuels are getting scarce and expensive, there is a need for using solar heat to supplement the existing industrial heating systems. International Energy Agency’s (IEA) roadmap vision for Solar Energy use for Industrial Heat shows that by 2050 around 20% of the industrial heat requirements will be met with solar heat.

Each industry has its unique processes and the solution for each requirement needs to be designed based on various factors like:

  • Process requirements
  • Space Available
  • Time of operation
  • Location
  • Integration with existing equipment
