CO2 reduction through heat recovery system.
For our alkoxylation reactors at Kolb Moerdijk (NL) a heat recovery system was developed by our own engineers. It is patented and received the “Responsible Care Award 2010” from the Association of the Dutch Chemical Industry. Recently this system is upgraded and saves 500,000m3 of natural gas yearly equivalent to reduction of 1,000 tonnes of CO2. This is enough to provide around 300 Dutch households with gas.
