This project marks a unique moment in the Callens Group’s history: Optimum by Callens, sister company callensvyncke, and parent company Callens joined forces to deliver a stunning result.
Heat recovery opens doors
Even though recovering heat from waste gas flows was all just pie in the sky until recently, Optimum has managed to develop a technology that does just that.
While heat recovery is a popular concept in the chemical and petrochemical industry also companies that use biomass-fuelled boilers, whose production processes release sulphur and plants that rely on glass furnaces for their processes have found the way to Optimum. As it happens, the flue gasses being released during these production processes contain sizeable amounts of energy that create major pollution while they are cooling in the steam boiler downstream.
