Large heat pumps in Europe Vol 2 - Check it out!

| The second edition of the large heat pump brochure.


EHPA is proud to present its second edition of a publication on large heat pump applications in Europe. The  brochure includes succesful application examples of 12 projects that show how heat pumps can be efficient and effective in several industrial sectors. 





Mostly unnoticed by public and industry, the heat pump technology has not only matured towards an ecologically and economically alternative heating technologies for the residential sector. It has also developed in terms of available power-output, served temperature levels and flexibility of use for very different applications. Applications from hundreds kW to even multiple MW in power output and heating temperatures approaching or even exceeding boiling temperature of water and being able to serve multiple sources and users simultaneously, are today not only available but state-of-theart, proven technology.


The "Large heat pumps in Europe vol.2" aims at showcasing best practice examples in sectors such as food processing, starch drying, confection plants, machinery production etc. Please see below the list of application examples listed on the publication: 

  • An intelligent hybrid system saves energy and improves production
  • Sustainable circular energy as a core value in chocolate bar processing
  • Heat from waste heat in machinery production
  • Internal integration of combined heating & cooling in Colruyt meat processing plant
  • Environment-friendly district heating network in Milan
  • Process heat in metalworking
  • Reusing waste heat has paid off: Ongoing energy savings and a substantially smaller carbon footprint
  • Heat pumps boost the energy efficiency of a Swiss Krono chipboard factory
  • District heating plugged into precious industrial waste heat source
  • Energy from Sewage
  • Use of Waste Heat for Starch Drying at Agrana
  • Heat pumps for brick drying at Wienerberger

This is the second publication on large heat pumps, in case you have missed it, please view and download the first edition, published in 2017.

Both brochures are an initiative of the Industrial and Commercial Heat Pump Working Group (ICHP).  ICHP works to increase recognition for this area of application and its contribution potential to the EU’s climate and energy targets. The group is open to all manufacturers of components and equipment of this heat pump category as well as to research bodies and other organisations interested in developing the segment. 


The group is chaired by Mr. Eric Delforge, Mayekawa.
