Mapping and distributing GC and ITP waste heat within ICs and local regions

June 2022

The study focuses on the Teesside industrial cluster and adopts a novel approach to identify waste heat sources and heat supply sinks within the region, involving total heat quantity and heat grade. This hybrid model framework considers classification of industry, production capacity, and CO2 emissions, alongside geographical data to map possible heat transport pathways and timescales. Findings indicate substantial waste heat potential, particularly from power plants and chemical industries, and highlight the feasibility of mobile thermal energy storage to reduce CO2 emissions compared to traditional gas boilers.
