District Heating and Cooling using “Waste” Heat / Joint Presentation with Engineeirns Australia Group

A presentation on the previously untapped opportunity to use industrial waste-heat

For a new housing estate we accept the use of recycled water for water conservation. Why not use the same approach and pipe waste industrial heat to new estates for heating and cooling?

Using industrial waste-heat is offering a significant efficiency upgrade of industrial processes, in Western Europe commonly utilized in district-heating and -cooling.

Erwin Boermans shows an insightful journey from Rotterdam in the Netherlands to Australia’s greater Melbourne area and Geelong. The 42 existing district heating grids in the Netherlands, zooming in on Rotterdam’s industrial heat-exchange called ‘Botlek-loop’.

In Australia – Decentralised cogeneration in Dandenong-station area, Sydney’s green infrastructure sustainable 2030, are examples.

Real sustainable innovation is available by bridging traditional boundaries and integrating smart ideas.
