Three companies in Slovenia invested in distribution and generation of warm water, portal Trajnostna energija reported.

The steel industry is focusing on the vast potentials of waste heat for electricity and district heating. Metal Ravne d. o. o. launched a project with Petrol energetika to provide heat to the local Carinthian village Ravne na Koroškem. The member of SIJ – Slovenian Steel Group completed the first phase by taking the surplus energy from the furnace to the local businesses and population. The produced heating is equivalent to between a fifth and a quarter of the needs. The challenge is to move to second phase, where low-temperature waste heat would, for instance, be converted with heat pumps, the article said.

Group Hoteli Bernardin d. d. installed a heat pump in San Simon resort in Izola in the country’s seaside. The project is worth EUR 150,000 and it was implemented with GGE d. o. o. This is the hotel enterprise’s third heat pump with the partner’s solutions.

Italian Aquafil SpA’s chemical industry Julon d. o. o. in capital Ljubljana invested EUR 300,000 together with Atlantis spa centre to supply it with waste heat for the swimming pool, meeting all needs. The companies say an equivalent of over 2,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions is saved per year, parallel to economic gain.
