LSBU conducting new hydrogen waste heat research

LSBU conducting new hydrogen waste heat research

A “world-first” research project is developing a new way of recovering waste heat from industry and decarbonise heating and cooling with new hydrogen technologies at London South Bank University (LSBU).

Unveiled today (2nd Feb), the project will investigate new ways of providing heating and cooling from energy intensive industries including steel, glass, paper and food.

It is thought the University’s new approach will offer three major benefits including huge cost and energy savings, significant carbon emission reductions and higher energy and cost savings.

Commenting on the project, Professor Yunting Ge, LSBU Professor of Building Services Engineering, said, “Waste heat recovery from industry can contribute significantly to cutting carbon emissions by decarbonising heating and cooling systems.”

“Our study will investigate new ways that industry can reuse waste heat and convert it for use in heating and cooling. About 60% of total waste heat produced in the UK by industry could potentially be reused.”

“We will be testing the potential of new hydrogen technology to tackle the huge environmental problems and financial costs caused by wasted heat. Our research offers the chance to cut carbon emissions and pollution, cut costs for business and create new jobs.”

“This waste heat recovery project is another example of the international lead that LSBU is taking to clean our environment and create a more sustainable planet through world-first research.”

Professor Ge is the principal investigator for the project and will work with two UK academic partners. The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) are providing £979,290 funding for the three-year project, launched in January 2021.
