Advanced Heat Recovery from a Low Global Warming Potential Refrigeration System at the Yosemite Foods Facility
This project will demonstrate an advanced heat recovery system to reduce natural gas consumption and GHG emissions at a food processing facility.
The purpose of this project is to install and operate an advanced heat recovery system at the Recipient's meat processing facility. The heat recovery system will be incorporated into an existing, large-scale transcritical carbon dioxide (CO2) refrigeration system in order to recycle waste heat for use in a singer system resulting in reduced onsite greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, energy consumption, and operating costs. Natural gas consumption will be measured before and after the system is installed in order to quantify and validate the GHG emissions reductions.
This project is expected to reduce GHG emissions by approximately 2,500 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year and nitrogen oxide emissions by approximately 6,000 pounds per year.
