Frosinone, Innovation in Textiles
Klopman, European leader in the production of workwear fabrics, has announced plans to construct a cogeneration plant for its Frosinone production facility. The objective is to replace the existing thermoelectric plant to supply energy to the entire facility within a year.
The new power plant will produce thermal energy and electricity at the same time. This way, almost all the thermal energy produced in the combustion process will be recovered and reused. In a traditional thermoelectric plant, only about 35% of the fuel is transformed into electricity. The remaining 65% is not used and is instead released into the environment in the form of heat, known as thermal energy, the company explains. Klopman’s new plant has been designed to modulate both the electricity supply and the thermal energy supply, to cope with changes in demand from the facility.
