Proposal of a methodology for the preliminary assessment of low temperature heat recovery opportunities for industrial applications Benedetti M., Dadi D.*, Introna V., Santolamazza A.



Despite the large availability of low-temperature industrial waste heat, and the maturity of the technologies for its exploitation, the rate of implementation of these interventions in the industrial sector is low, mainly due to the presence of numerous barriers, such as the complexity of identifying the solution on which to focus attention based on the available heat and internal needs. Through the definition of a comprehensive methodology, this work aims to propose an easy-to-use tool that can provide real support to companies in the preliminary assessment of waste heat recovery opportunities.

Keywords Waste heat recovery, Organic Rankine Cycle, low-temperature waste heat, energy efficiency, industrial sustainability.
