Project overview


Feasibility Study to develop engineering solutions and business case to recover heat from manufacturing processes and re-use. 


Multiple manufacturing processes reject heat to atmosphere either directly or indirectly across the Ingleburn and Yatala RPF sites. If feasible technical solutions can be developed to effectively re-use this heat across other manufacturing processes within the site, there is the opportunity to reduce Ingleburn’s total site energy usage by 30% and Yatala’s total site energy usage by 24%.   


Key deliverables; 

  • Develop a User Requirements Specification for the heat energy recovery systems  
  • Complete detailed first-principal energy usage estimate calculations for all major heat energy users 
  • Complete detailed first-principal energy savings estimate calculations for existing and proposed systems
  • Create a process flow diagram for existing and proposed heat energy users on site. 
  • Develop an equipment list for the new equipment and key specifications for the major equipment
  • Create a process description for the proposed heat energy recovery system
  • Develop general arrangement drawings for the major equipment for the proposed system
  • Develop capital budget for core scope and optional items (± 15%) 
  • Develop detailed benefits calculations to be delivered by project scope and optional items
  • Perform cost/benefit analysis of project scope and optional items
  • Develop a project management plan for the project proposed project execution


The Study will achieve the following Outcomes: 

(a) enable a decision by the Recipient to: 

  (i) proceed to fund implementation of the studied Project; or 

  (ii) proceed to a more detailed engineering study (FEED); or  

  (iii) terminate further development of the studied Project; 

(b) inform the manufacturing industry of the barriers to implementation of the studied Project and potential solutions to these barriers; 

(c) accelerate uptake of similar projects across the manufacturing industry; and 

(d) enable accelerated transformational improvement in industrial renewable energy and/or energy efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions compared to baseline or business as usual across manufacturing facilities.
