Waste heat

The problem

BEWA, the neighbour just across the road from DCS, produces its own power by fermenting food refuse that comes from restaurants, for example. The fermentation process is carried out in two large tanks and produces a lot of heat. BEWA harvests this warmth to heat the large containers that hold the liquid fats and oils stored by the company. The excessive leftover heat, the waste heat, was just discarded in the past.

The solution

DCS suggested constructing a heat loop within the Moerdijk industrial zone where both companies are located. This loop now enables surrounding businesses to use BEWA’s excessive heat to warm their production halls. A solution that is both beneficial to the environment and the local companies, which now receive lower gas bills.
