CHP or cogeneration technology enables simultaneous production of heat and electricity. CHP producing energy locally gives the benefit of saving around 7% of the energy that normally would be lost throughout transmission and distribution process within national or local network. In regular energy production plant some energy is usually discarded as waste heat. Cogeneration enables to re-capture most of this thermal energy and use it for district heating or industrial processes.
Industrial cogeneration is very popular and effective way of producing necessary heat and energy by pulp and paper mills, chemical plants and also rafineries. Cogeneration process enables to recover heat at temperatures above 100°C and use it for process steam or drying purposes.
