(ENTEG) are partners in a MOOI consortium (mission-driven research, development and innovation). The consortium receives EUR 3 million for their project ‘The Heat is On’. Cherukuri and Jayawardhana receive EUR 300,000 to develop, deploy and use digital twin technologies for smart process optimization and control.
In the agrofood, paper and specialty chemicals industries 40 to 80 % of CO2 emissions is related to heat driven processes. By developing and implementing an innovative process design for dewatering, drying and heat integration, the recently granted industry driven innovation program The Heat is On will reduce fossil fuel consumption and increase energy efficiency. This leads to more than 3,0Mton CO2-reduction in 2030.
Within The Heat is On, partners in the agrofood, paper and specialty chemical industries collaborate to increase process efficiency through optimizing separation and drying processes and to increase the heat upgrading potential. Digital twinning, making an exact digital copy of a process, is used for smart process optimization and control. The Heat Is On has been developed with industrial partners, SMEs, research institutes and universities, and is coordinated by the Institute for Sustainable Process Technology (ISPT).
Many innovative technologies for energy reductions in heat driven processes have been developed on lab or small pilot scale. However, due to the complexity and cohesion of processes in companies, translation to industrial application remains difficult. This project aims to accelerate the application of innovations through a case-based approach for integration into the existing process industry.
The Heat is On will especially look at a combination of the following efforts:
