The food industry requires a lot of heat and cold. The aim of the Food Pinch research project is to use heat and cold more efficiently and to put waste heat flows to further use. Researchers are developing and testing a dynamic pinch analysis for this purpose.
Energy efficiency in the food industry
Flexible heat integration with dynamic pinch analysis
The food industry requires a lot of heat and cold. The aim of the Food Pinch research project is to use this more efficiently and to put waste heat flows to further use. Researchers are developing a dynamic pinch analysis and testing it with three users. The specialist portal Industrie-Energieforschung has published an article about the Food Pinch research project, which you can read below (The article is only available in English).
