Crematorium - Heat Capture
To install one of the UK’s most innovative heat recovery systems to a local authority owned crematorium in the Midlands to use heat recovered from the crematorium to supplement the heating system at a neighboring leisure center and pool. The project was challenging as the stadium was open to the public during construction.
Devised by the local authority, which owns both facilities, the system has already won acclaim and the local authority a Green Apple Environmental award, being hailed as a best practice eco-example. It sees the water used to cool the flue gasses run alongside the water used in the swimming pool with heat energy (not the water itself) exchanged between these pipes.
