First Qpinch unit at Kuraray

- 29th December 2019

The year is ending well, with another company that is known for its innovations joining the ranks of the very first Qpinch customers. Kuraray, one of Japan’s leading chemical companies, will integrate our technology for the first time into one of its plants.

Kuraray’s Energy Coordinator said he’s “excited to be among the very first companies in the world to implement Qpinch”.

Our technological breakthrough allows Kuraray to realize a sizeable reduction of CO2 emissions while also lowering its energy bill considerably. Once fully proven, the technology will help Kuraray to deliver on its environmental commitments.

The Qpinch Heat Transformer converts waste heat from the production process into new process heat–steam in this case. This increase in energy efficiency reduces the overall gas consumption needed to drive the process by up to 50%.

This first 1.5 MW unit is slated to be fully operational in the second half of 2020. It will save 3 300 tonnes of CO2 per year – the equivalent of over 2 000 passenger cars.

Stay tuned to hear more about our mission to help the industry reach net-zero emissions faster.
