Econotherm To Use Industrial Heat for Energy

A company that says it has developed a unique process to convert industrial waste heat into re-usable energy is establishing an R&D and manufacturing plant for its heat exchanger technology in Wales.

Econotherm will manufacture its heat exchanger, which uses a patented superconductor heat pipe system to recover waste energy that can then be re-used in the form of heated fluid or air for industrial processes or can provide space heating.

“Heat pipes have been successfully used in space and electronics industries for several years and are a generically proven technology with strong technical advantages over conventional heat exchanger designs. However, they have hitherto been regarded as cost prohibitive and difficult to create an effective business case for the utilization as an energy recovery technology,” said Mark Boocock, Director of Econotherm.
