Final Digital Conference

Bringing a waste heat recovery system to market.

The event took place on 15th February 2022 and was presenting the key results of the EU-funded ETEKINA project on the development, construction and comissioning of three prototypes of new heat pipe heat exchangers (HPHE), recovering more than 40% of waste heat streams in energy intensive industries.

The virtual event was aimed at engineers, scientists, energy managers of energy intensive industries and anyone interested in understanding and learning how heat pipe heat exchangers can substantially reduce the carbon footprint. 


about this event

The consortium presented the results of the ETEKINA project, which includes three heat pipe heat exchanger (HPHE) prototypes that can recover more than 40% of the waste heat streams in energy intensive industries.


The three end-users  provided insights about the implementation of these heat exchangers: SIJ METAL RAVNE (Slovenia) reported on their monitoring results in a steel factory, FAGOR EDERLAN (Spain) shared their experiences on an aluminium foundry and ATLAS CONCORDE (Italy)  have implemented the HPHE prototype in their ceramics production line and presented their results. 
In addition, there have been presentations on the HPHE technology itself and on the legal framework in Europe  energy intensive industries should consider when implementing heat recovery technologies.
