Technology Market Penetration and Roadmapping

Industrial waste heat management has seen rising levels of importance due to volatile fuel prices and also regulations to maximize energy conservation. As such, industries have started recognizing the necessity and advantages of industrial waste heat management. Till recent past much importance was being paid to recovering waste heat and reusing it as thermal energy. But now the focus is on new methods of waste heat recovery which convert even low grade waste heat into other forms of energy with increased feasibility. Low grade waste heat recovery, which has slowly been gaining prominence is expected to be a major driver for research in the future.

This research service report presents analysis on current technology capability and expected future trends in technology adoption for industrial waste heat management. Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) was used to evaluate the application potential in the five most energy intensive industries – Cement, Oil and Gas, Steel, Pulp and Paper, and Glass to identify the industry with greatest future application potential. Based on inputs from technology developers and from the predicted market scenario, an evaluation was done.

The objective of this research is to report on the market penetration of current industrial waste heat management practices and map the technological development in the industry until the year 2020.

Waste heat is heat generated in a process during the course of fuel combustion or chemical reaction, which is dumped into the environment and not reused for useful and economic purposes.

Briefly, this research service provides:
-A snapshot of current industrial waste heat management technologies and their capabilities.
-Market impact assessment and analysis of key innovations and technology and business accelerators and challenges in the field of waste heat management technologies.
-An assessment of technology adoption region-wise and by technology.
-An evaluation of emerging opportunities, application roadmapping and recommendations for technology development and management.
-Some key patents that provide an insight into notable activities and global participants, and a detailed list of contacts in the field, which includes names, titles, addresses, phone numbers, email IDs, and Website URLs.

Key Findings

1 Future innovations in waste heat recovery would be focused towards recovery of low grade waste heat recovery,
Industrial waste heat recovery potential is immense in the Asia Pacific Region, which is a major manufacturing hub. North America is the global leader in the number of patents closely followed by the North East Asia region.
2 Asia Pacific is one of the major innovators in industry specific Waste Heat Recovery (WHR) solutions.
3 In developing nations, the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) has played a major role in facilitating the implementation of waste heat recovery projects.
4 Industries with maximum potential for application of waste heat recovery would be the cement industry and glass industry.
5 An increasing trend of using waste heat towards generation of power would be seen in the future as against past trends of recycling of heat as thermal energy.
