Therm-Liner Plant in Fürth
Town Hall Fürth (2010)
The local sewer pipe, which is in a depth of 8 meters and flows directly past the front door of the Town Hall building, is large enough to supply nearly all the energy required to heat this large renovated building.
Making the decision to employ the Therm Liner energy recovery System the Town of Furth have renovated their buildings energy system and set a very high ecological bench mark for other communities to follow.
The waste water that flows constantly in large quantities through the sewers under our cities has, up to now, been neglected as an energy source.
The energy that exists in this waste water can be used to heat or to cool buildings.
The Therm Liner System from Uhrig is installed into the existing Sewer network and the waste water simply flows over the elements. The energy is then extracts by means of a heat pump system and introduced into the buildings existing heating or cooling system for use.
