Swedish Exergy AB to deliver Exergy Superheated Steam Dryer to Agricultura y Conservas S.A in Spain.

Gothenburg: September 3rd 2020

In the past companies have neglected the valorization potential of orange and citrus peel by discarding it as waste. However this week a big step towards minimizing agricultural waste was taken by Agricultura y Conservas S.A. The company signed a contract with Swedish Exergy AB for the delivery of an Exergy Superheated Steam Dryer, where citrus peel will be dried and valorized to be used as an animal feed with minimal energy consumption and smallest CO2 footprint.

The project will run over a course of 1 year and delivery is scheduled for July 2021.

The citrus peel which was a cost for Agricultura y Conservas S.A will now instead be a source of income and sold as high-value animal feed.

The Exergy Superheated Steam Dryer recovers up to 95% of the energy which is put into the system. This excess energy in the form of steam will be used as a process steam for the evaporators thus eliminating the requirement for an outside energy source to run the evaporators.   

Swedish Exergy AB is proud that our expertise and technology can and will help companies, in this case, Agricultura y Conservas S.A, achieve their environmental goals and seize opportunities that provide newfound financial gains. We thank Agricultura y Conservas S.A for their confidence in us and look forward to delivering a modern and robust steam dryer to Agricultura y Conservas S.A during 2021.
