Can Solex technology recover waste heat?

Yes. Solex technology allows for the capture and re-use of low-grade energy that is otherwise wasted or not economical to recover  most notably during the processing of oilseeds such as soybean, rapeseed and canola.

By offering a much larger heat transfer surface area compared to traditional technologies in a compact design, our technology can accommodate the utilization of low-grade waste heat including steam, condensate or hot water.

Additional considerations:

  • Different process conditions will influence the heat recovery potential.
  • Carbon taxes will vary between regions, thereby impacting the attractiveness of heat recovery projects.
  • Capacity increases can make investments into heat recovery more attractive.
  • Existing equipment can influence the final heat recovery solution.
