Energy saving with software-based pinch control

Food Pinch presented as best-practice project at conference

Food Pinch Projekt auf dem Kongress Energieeffizienzforschung für Industrie und Gewerbe

Our research project Food Pinch – energy saving with software-based pinch control – was presented in a poster exhibition at the two-day conference “Energy Efficiency Research for Industry and Commerce” on May 17 and 18, 2022.

As part of a poster exhibition (German), selected researchers, amongst them ÖKOTEC had the opportunity to present results and trends of their energy research in industry and commerce. The participants took the opportunity to find out more about the research projects both during a tour of the exhibition and digitally. Furthermore, they were invited to get in touch with the project teams directly.

The extensive program of the conference also offered the opportunity to hear keynote presentations on current energy efficiency topics and to discuss energy saving, digitization and climate-neutral heat, amongst other topics, in a range of workshops.

In the following video (German), Knut Grabowski, project manager of Food Pinch, gives an insight into the research project and reports potential energy savings of 16 percent by controlling cooling water supplies.
