District heating is a Systems for distributing heat water generated in a centralized location for residential and commercial heating requirements such as space heating and water heating. Potential heat sources for district heating are sustainable energy sources. Underground ECOLINE preinsulated pipes, distribute hot water in residential or commercial buildings.
A District Cooling Systems ("DCS") produces chilled water within a centralized energy plant and distributes it through underground pipes to buildings connected to the Systems.
ECOLINE pre-insulated pipes are the best solution for District Cooling Systems.
ECOLINE pre-insulated pipe systems are very good to avoid temperature exchange between the transported liquid and the external area.
A cogeneration plant fueled by biogas produces electricity and thermal energy from organic materials of vegetable nature, from animal waste, organic waste (MSW) and sewage treatment. The production of electricity, starting from a combustion engine, in fact always also generates heat, which is normally dispersed into the environment. With the high performance of ECOTECH pipes this heat is recovered and transported to the heat exchangers of the users.
ECOLINE pre-insulated pipe and components, allow hot and cold water to reach buildings for sanitary use.
Solar thermal plant is a system that, by using the sun's rays, converts the solar energy into thermal energy without producing harmful emissions; it allows to heat buildings and also to guarantee sanitary water. The heat fluid transfers, by means of ECOTECH pre-insulated pipes, the water to the users which can be hot water for sanitary use and for heating system.
Biomass can be used to power plants that generate electricity and heat. The use of biomass for thermal purposes, for heating or for the production of domestic hot water, occurs mainly through domestic systems, or heat exchangers, connected to district heating networks built with pre-insulated ECOTECH pipes.
Geothermal energy is thermal energy generated and stored in the Earth.
With water from hot springs, geothermal energy is nowadays well known for electricity generation. Geothermal Systems are installed for district heating, space heating, spas, industrial processes, desalination and agricultural applications.
The biogas, which is formed by the degradation process of the organic component of the waste, is intercepted by several extraction wells, homogeneously distributed throughout the landfill area, and sent to combustion in special internal combustion gas engines. In many cases, in addition to the engine, these systems are also equipped with a heat recovery system, for the simultaneous production of electricity and heat that can be transported to the users with ECOTECH pre-insulated pipes.
In waste-to-energy plants, the heat developed during the combustion of waste is recovered and used to produce steam, for the production of electricity and hot water for district heating networks, built with pre-insulated ECOTECH pipes.
