Nordkalk warms up the town of Köping

Since December 2013, Nordkalk in Köping has been supplying recovered residual heat to the town’s district heating network. This heat allows the town to reduce its consumption of fuels for heating, which also reduces emissions.

A heat recovery unit installed in the flue gas channel of the rotary kiln makes it possible to utilise the residual heat from the kiln. Depending on operation conditions, up to 14 MW can be delivered to the district heating network. In 2016, Nordkalk delivered 46,000 MWh, which equals the amount of energy in about 4.5 million litres of heating oil.
