Energy cooperation – Project “Nieuwe Dokken”
“Nieuwe Dokken” is a project of Govi in collaboration with the local environment, in an attempt to reduce our impact on the environment. With this project, we will supply heating to over 400 apartments, coming from excess heat of Govi’s production, by using a closed heat circuit. This heat comes from the production of esters, where a reaction is provoked by heating up the components. About 70% of all excess heat produced will be delivered. As a return, we receive the wastewater coming from the apartments. The water, which is about 30 000 m3 each year, is thoroughly cleaned and used as process water at our production facility.
