A new heat recovery system has finished construction at Fresno’s Lyons Magnus food processing facility and will increase the efficiency of the onsite cogeneration plant.
Cogeneration produces electricity and heat at the same time, and recovers waste heat to generate electricity or for process steam needs. MMR Power Solutions constructed a cogeneration power plant for Lyons Magnus and delivers hot water, electricity and steam to the processing plant.
The new system will reduce Lyon Magnus’s annual purchase of industrial water by about 2.5 million gallons, and will save at least 750 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year, MMR Power Solutions said.
“The fact that we are reducing costs and water consumption while improving the environment is an added bonus,” said Bob Smittcamp, Lyons Magnus chairman and CEO, in a statement.
