In order to achieve the EU’s target of a net-zero economy by 2050, decarbonising our industrial heat supply is a top priority. 

Industrial heat pumps can use renewable energy from air, water or ground but also waste energy from buildings and processes to provide heating and cooling. Users of heating and cooling in many industrial processes can benefit economically from a most efficient use of energy while providing a significant benefit towards emission reduction and air quality.

This webinar will dive into the benefits of high-temperature heat pumps and it will showcase some examples of real-world applications in industrial facilities. The event is organised within the framework of SPIRIT, EU project funded under the Horizon Europe Programme, aiming at fostering the uptake of the heat pump technology in the food & beverage and paper & pulp industries.
