OTTAWA, Oct. 29 /CNW Telbec/ - Thermal Energy International Inc. (TSX-V:
TMG) (www.thermalenergy.com) is pleased to announce it has completed its first
waste heat recovery project in the U.S.
The $1.4 million contract received through Johnson Controls, Inc., for a
Fortune 500 food and beverage customer involved the design and implementation
of a FLU-ACE(R) waste heat recovery system and extensive work on the design
and installation of extensive conduits and heat transfer processes to use the
recovered waste heat to reduce fossil fuel consumption.
"One of the challenges for this project was building on energy efficiency
measures previously implemented by the client, including stack economizers
already in place on three boilers to recover heat for preheating boiler
water," said Thermal Energy Chief Operating Officer Denis Forget. "Despite
such measures, we determined there were still large quantities of energy being
wasted which amounted to approximately 15% of the fuel energy purchased
annually and we have been successful in achieving those savings."
The project saves the manufacturer approximately $600,000 a year in fuel
energy costs which also results in a decrease in annual emissions of
3,000 tons of CO2 and 4 tons of nitrogen oxides (NOx).
Thermal Energy is in the process of conducting a feasibility study at
another one of the company's plants.
