Installation of a high-temperature TERRAO heat exchanger to capture and treat smokes from the waste recycling center of Dunkerque Petite-Synthe.
The project called « Experimentation CVE », involved installing of a TERRAO heat exchanger to capture and treat part of the flue gases of the CVE, while recovering the thermal energy at high temperatures.
The CVE values 80 000 tons of residual waste per year. The heat generated during the combustion of waste is currently valorized by the production of electrical energy. With TERRAO, the CVE studies both the possibility to transform the waste in heat and clean the fumes. This technology could be deployed to other industrial sites using similar processes.
