Significant reduction of emissions, lower energy consumption and greater plant efficiency, and the drive to continue on a path marked by the sustainability of the entire production process. These are the main factors that have driven Klopman, European leader in the production of workwear fabrics, to construct a cogeneration plant for its Frosinone production facility. The objective is to replace the existing thermoelectric plant to supply energy to the entire facility within a year.
The new power plant will produce thermal energy and electricity at the same time. In this way, almost all the thermal energy produced in the combustion process will be recovered and reused. In fact, in a traditional thermoelectric plant, only about 35% of the fuel is transformed into electricity. The remaining 65% is not used and is instead released into the environment in the form of heat, known as thermal energy.
Klopman’s new plant has been designed to modulate both the electricity supply and the thermal energy supply, to cope with changes in demand from the facility.
