Generating electrical energy in bottles production in Milan


Use waste heat to generate electrical energy for company’s need and heating for nearby properties for the production of bottles in Milan

Vetrobalsamo is an investor of this project in Milan (Italy).
Waste in the form of gases emitted from the furnace is generated during bottle production. Instead of commonly used Organic Rankine Cycle, a 400-kW steam expander was installed in 2015 and is used to generate electrical energy. The solution is optimized to provide electrical energy for the company’s need and heating for nearby properties. The device lowers costs and improves overall effectiveness of the company. CO2emissions are also reduced thanks to a lower consumption of fossil fuels.
