Combining the paper industry and heat pump systems makes sense. That is the message coming from the partnership between the associations representing the paper manufacturing sectors, CEPI (Confederation of European Paper Industries) and EHPA (European Association of Heat Pumps). The goal of this collaboration is to achieve an innovation that could produce 50% energy savings in paper manufacturing. It could also play a key role in decarbonizing one of Europe’s energy-intensive sectors. In today’s world heat pumps save energy for many industries. They provide about 10% of final industrial energy demand in Europe and contribute to reducing industrial emissions in many sectors. "Our Industry will continue to do its part to reduce energy consumption and heat pumps can play an important role in this regard. Combined with access to affordable non-fossil energy heat pumps, this will allow a full transition to a low-carbon, circular, bioproduct-based economy," said Jori Ringman, CEPI’s Executive Director (see photo).
