Heat recovery

Patented process for particulate control and highly efficient heat recovery

If untreated and wet biomass is being used to generate heat and/or electricity, the use of exhaust gas condensation plants is generally recommended. The ERCS (Energy Recovery & Cleaning System) process developed and patented by Scheuch offers not only the highly valued levels of dust and particle control reliability that customers have come to expect, but also highly efficient heat recovery and energy-optimised depluming.

By harnessing the heat recovery properties of our ERCS plants, you can

recover 50% of the boiler output from heat

make fuel savings of 30%

achieve a 20% reduction in investment costs for the heating plant

The heat obtained from the flue gas can be put to good use in applications including the following:

  • Boosting efficiency in district and local heating networks
  • Process heat (e.g. for steam or ORC processes)
  • Drying shavings, fuel or sawn timber
  • Depluming of the steam plume at the chimney outlet
