Haldor Topsøe and E.ON to harness excess industrial heat  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Haldor Topsøe A/S (Lyngby, Denmark; www.topsoe.com) and E.ON, one of the world’s largest power and gas companies, have entered an agreement, where E.ON will utilize excess heat generated at Haldor Topsøe’s production site in Frederikssund, Denmark, to provide district heating for up to 50% of Frederikssund city’s homes. In late August construction of a 400-m long district-heating pipeline between Haldor Topsøe’s production site in Frederikssund and E.ONs district heating network began. By the end of this year construction of the pipeline will be completed, and thereby make it possible to transport approximately 30,000– 35,000 MWh/yr of excess heat as warm water. This water will be fed into E.ON’s district heating infrastructure and corresponds to the annual energy consumption of more than 1,700 households. Simultaneously, it will save the environment from 6,000 ton/yr of carbon dioxide and 2.5 ton/yr of nitrogen oxides. “As a manufacturer of catalysts that reduce air pollution and energy consumption worldwide, we have long had our eye on the pollution-reducing potential of the excess heat generated by our plant in Frederikssund. Until recently, however, it has been impossible…
