When considering industrial needs for heat, usually the first image that comes to mind is that of metallurgy. While some industrial processes require very high temperatures, most of the energy needed for industrial processes requires low or medium-temperature heat.
Industrial processes can use low temperature for washing or dyeing textiles. The dairy sector uses heat for washing and pasteurization. Other industries, such as mining, can use it for leaching. Therefore, the use of low temperature heat in industrial processes can be widely diverse. The biggest potential is seen in the food and beverage industry but also in the metal and mining sector.
