Decarbonization, Electrification and the Case for Modern Electric Process Heaters

Companies in liquified natural gas (LNG) and other industries have been taking bold steps to reduce their carbon footprint. The overall strategy of these companies is to tackle carbon emissions not only through alternative energy investment and increased efficiency, but also through converting key industrial processes (like process heating) to electric(rather than fuel-fired). This paper explores pressures to electrify process heating, as well as the role that electric heat exchangers are playing, particularly in light of innovations in the design of these heaters.

"Greening" Industry Though Innovative Process and Environmental Technologies: 2020 Report

Tighter regulations, mounting public pressure and shifts in the economy have all put pressure on industries to explore green technologies. But after decades of pursuing the " low-hanging fruit,"  many industries are facing tough engineering problems. However, innovative solutions need to be large, futuristic, or expensive: Watlow's own technologies prove that smaller "partner" technologies can often help solve very specific problems that, together, bar the way to more progress. Here we review five such technologies, showcasing how they  are helping to reduce power needs, electrify key processes, reduce emissions, clean hazardous waste and support renewable power.
