Alfa Laval supports Russia’s National Clean Air Initiative
Alfa Laval has won an order to supply heat exchangers to one of the largest copper and nickel producers in Russia. The heat exchangers will recover heat from the smelting process and reuse it for heating purposes. The project is part of the producer’s sustainability program supporting Russia’s National Clean Air initiative.
The order comprises compact heat exchangers which will be used for sulphuric acid cooling. The heat that is recovered and reused amounts to 150 MW. The energy-efficient process will also enable a 45 percent decrease in emissions from the plant.
“Energy efficiency is one of the key contributors to reaching the goals set out in the Paris Agreement and it can deliver more than 40 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions savings over the next 20 years – with half of it coming from industry,” says Susanne Pahlén Åklundh, President of the Energy Division. “Our energy efficient heat exchangers enable the industry to save energy and reduce emissions, thereby contributing to a more sustainable future.”
Did you know that… Alfa Laval’s plate heat exchanger technology is 20-50 percent more efficient than conventional technology used by the industry?
