The project in Gmunden contains several innovations which in com-bination are a real novelty and open a high replication potential for other installations. The implementation of ceramic high temperature gas filtration allows a highly efficient re-cuperation of the exergy contained in the cement gas, opening the way for cost efficient heat storage solutions.
The main project goal is to develop, engineer and implement 10 MWth heat recovery at 400°C from a cement plant. The main technological characteristics are the implementation of ceramic gas cleaning and the use of molten salt or supercritical CO2 in a cement plant, the development and design of a thermal storage unit with a capacity comprised between 24 hours and 60 days and the 1,5km heat transport at temperatures between 240 and 350° C across public land to the city area.
- Ceramic gas filtration of cement gas
- Implementation of finned tube heat recuperation with novel fluids
- Cost efficient bulk thermal energy storage
- High temperature heat transport over 1,5km of public land
