Increasing sustainability and cutting costs in the textiles industry
This translates into huge quantities of fossil fuels – both to create energy directly needed to power the mills, produce heat and steam, and power air conditioners, as well as indirectly to create the many chemicals used in production. In addition, the textile industry has one of the lowest efficiencies in energy utilization because it is largely antiquated.
Many different treatments and finishing processes are used in the sector. These include sizing and de-sizing, mercerising, bleaching, singeing, fire retardant and anti-static treatments, washing or spot cleaning, drying and pressing. These typically consume energy and water and result in handling of chemicals and other agents and contaminated waste water.
which will boost the performance of energy intensive industries, like cement, metals, mining, power, textiles, and pulp & paper to achieve significant reduction in energy consumption, and thus reduce operational costs and carbon footprint.
Ideal for process industries, where steam is available in large quantities the Heliex system can be used to:
- Generate a low cost supply of electricity
- Drive a piece of equipment
- Re-energise low pressure steam
- Power an air compressor
