Applications within renewable fuels and chemicals industry

Biochemical production

Heat exchangers are utilized in biochemical production processes, such as fermentation, to control temperatures and maintain optimal conditions for microbial or enzymatic activity. They provide precise heating or cooling of fermentation vessels, ensuring high product yields and quality.

Biogas production

Heat exchangers are employed in anaerobic digestion systems to maintain optimal temperature conditions for microbial activity. They heat the digester feedstock to the required temperature range for microbial growth and help control the temperature within the digester to maximize biogas production efficiency.

Ethanol production

Heat exchangers are used to facilitate the heating and cooling processes involved in ethanol production, including scarification (conversion of starches into sugars), fermentation (conversion of sugars into ethanol), distillation (separation of ethanol from water), and dehydration (removal of remaining water to produce fuel-grade ethanol).

Renewable fuels

The renewable fuels and chemicals industry focuses on the production of biofuels, biogas, and biochemicals from renewable biomass sources such as plants, algae, and waste materials. This industry plays a crucial role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, promoting energy independence, and advancing sustainability.
