FOUR DEMONSTRATION SITES
ABOUT THESE DEMONSTRATION SITES
The systems will be demonstrated at four demo sites: a pilot office building in Seville (Spain, ACCIONA Construction); a water treatment plant in Madrid (Canal de Isabel II & ACCIONA Water); a Pulp and Paper mill in Setubal (Portugal, The Navigator Company); and a student hall in Badajoz (Spain, University of Extremadura).
During the first year of the project, the Demo sites have been evaluated in order to be equipped with their respective LowUP systems during the next year. In parallel, the individual components have been designed and customized for each one of the sites.
Demo #1: Pilot office in Seville
Demo #2: Student hall in Badajoz (RUCAB)
Demo #3: Waste Water Treatment Plant in Madrid
The plant includes a line of anaerobic digestion of the sludges that allows the production of biogas which becomes electrical power. The process requiresthat key components are kept warm (around 40ºC) which results in huge heating demands. By means of the HP-LowUP system, part of this heating process will be recovered from the wasted sludges of the process thus increasing its efficiency.
Demo #4: Pulp & Paper mill
The Navigator Company is highly concerned about operational and energy efficiency and has started several initiatives around it. This brings the LowUP project the opportunity to test their HP-LowUP system, by gathering valuated heating from dirty effluents downstream in the main fabrication processes. Different possibilities are being evaluated over the site.
