Title: Heating/Power Station for Rhomberg´s Fabrik
The heating/power station (Austria) consists of a slowly running diesel engine that is specialized in the energetic utilization of unestered vegetable oil. The firing of unestered fuel is possible due to the low engine speed and the slow firing in the combustion chamber. The produced heat is used for heating rooms and water by the industrial park. The aim of the project was to use renewable energy sources in a highly efficient way. Therefore only fuel from agricultural production or recycled oils from the food industry are used.
