We are constantly forcing measures for the recovery of heat at our production sites. Installed heat counters document the sustainable success.
- We use waste heat from the cooling machines and use it to heat our production rooms.
- The use of evaporation condensers supports the cooling processes.
- We optimise compressor controls and thus reduce system pressure.
- The condensate is used to recover heat.
- We use heat exchangers.
The used or generated heat in the production areas is recovered and saves on the use of fossil fuels such as natural gas.
Recovery of heat - A benefit for the environment
The recovered amount of heat has increased 3-fold since 2008 and in 2013 a total of 931,151 m3 natural gas could be saved thus, 2,262 tonnes of CO2eq
The following reductions were achieved per milk processing amount with a 9.42% increase in the amount of milk 2012/2013:
- 8.94% less natural gas
- 9.32% less electricity
- 8.00% less fresh water
