Enhancing energy efficiency is necessary in order to cut carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. This can be achieved through innovative technologies that reduce energy consumption by using more efficient heat transfer solutions in existing processes, such as heat recovery. Alfa Laval provides a range of solutions in areas where the energy sector, industry and other stakeholders must work together to accelerate developments that will save energy and reduce CO2 emissions.
