HighEFF and TINE explain how HighEFF helped TINE plan a more energy efficient dairy plant by implementing new heat pump technology.
Carbon Dioxide is so often cast as the villain in climate change debates. Yet that very same substance along with other natural working fluids has the potential to cut more emissions than any other climate change mitigation technology. Now HighEFF is poised to build on years of Norwegian research and push the technology through to commercialisation in new areas..
HighEFF Cross-sector Workshop 2018
For the second year, HighEFF invited the consortium members to a Cross-sector workshop to discuss highlights from the Centre thus far, and to give input on the research planned for next year. The workshop was a great success and we are looking forward to the next one in 2019.
We talked to Centre Manager Petter Røkke and five representatives from the industry and research partners in the Centre about HighEFF research and how being a part of HighEFF is beneficial to the partners.
HighEFF Miniseries: Natural working fluids
A big part of making industry greener and more energy efficient is to eliminate potential leakage of very potent (artificial) greenhouse gases from (for example) heat pumps. A way to do this is to replace these artificial gases, or working fluids as they are called, with natural working fluids which will not harm the environment if they leak out into the atmosphere. SINTEF and NTNU have decades of experience in using natural working fluids and Norway has come a long way in putting them to use. Now, HighEFF is looking to use the knowledge on natural working fluids in new areas: for surplus heat capture and utilization, for example. Watch the mini-series below (in Norwegian) to learn more on natural working fluids and how HighEFF is looking to use them to make the industry greener and more energy efficient.
