LowUP’s RHeX Rotating Heat Exchanger – Rotating heat recovery unit is one of the Solar Impulse Foundation’s #1000Solutions In 2013, Pozzi patented a newer model of the rotating heat recovery system called RHeX, a key part of the LowUP project. RHeX is a rotating heat exchanger specifically designed to work with dirty effluents containing mechanical particulate without losing efficiency. More on RHeX: Normally,
The one-day Dissemination Workshop was conducted in Milan, Italy. The first part of the workshop focused on the LowUP project and each of its solutions while the second part was a guided tour of the POZZI facilities in Barlassina, Italy where a component of Heat-LowUP is being developed. In addition to the project partners, several external participants were in attendance.
LowUP – which stands for ‘Low valued energy sources UPgrading for buildings and industry uses’– will contribute to achieving Europe’s GHG reduction targets and increase energy efficiency. The project will develop and demonstrate three new efficient heating and cooling technologies that will significantly reduce both CO2 emissions and primary energy consumption. Heating and cooling refers to the energy needed to
