Waste heat driven cooling at beef processing facilities
Waste heat recovery technologies present an opportunity to utilize typically wasted energy to reduce overall energy consumption by producing mechanical work, electricity, heating, or cooling. In this study, the technoeconomic performance of a turbo-compression cooling system (TCCS) driven by waste heat from boiler exhaust gas produced at beef processing facilities is investigated. The cooling produced by the TCCS is integrated to the primary refrigeration system (PRS) of a beef processing facility to provide condenser subcooling, which enhances the performance of the PRS and produces refrigeration ...
