Compressed air systems are widely used in industry due to, among other things, their ease of use, operational safety and environmental friendliness, and compressed air can be considered one of the basic commodities essential for most industries. However, compressed air is the most expensive energy in industry - in large EU countries, industry uses up to 7-12% of all its electricity to produce compressed air. The project investigates the utilization of waste heat to produce compressed air.
