The SCCER Efficiency of Industrial Processes is a joint effort of major Swiss research institutes active in industrial energy efficiency, thereby covering all relevant disciplines and competencies, representing the various regions and their diversity and ensuring a close link to industry.
New methods and novel technologies
The goals of the SCCER EIP are twofold:
- New methods will be developed in order increase the implementation of energy efficiency measures and technologies in industry.
- Novel technologies will be developed in order to increase energy and material efficiency of new processes.
Comprehensive techno-economic information of existing and new technologies, new integration methods and tools on company/site level and the inclusion of multiple benefits that facilitate most effectively the implementation energy efficiency measures and novel technologies are being researched.
Technologies which are investigated include separation processes such as adsorption, condensation heat transfer, small and mid-power generation from steam engines, as well as process intensification by improving transport phenomena.
