Alfa Laval has signed a partnership agreement with Cepsa, an international energy company committed to sustainable mobility and energy, support the work to reduce CO2 emissions. During the 3-year agreement period, Alfa Laval will provide process optimisation services and heat exchangers to Cepsa’s two Energy Parks in Spain.

During the agreement period, Alfa Laval will optimise the processes in two energy parks by using Alfa Laval compact heat exchangers to achieve the highest possible energy efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions. The cooperation will also support Cepsa’s Agile strategy which aims at speeding up the implementation of more sustainable solutions.

Cepsa launched its new strategic plan, Positive Motion, in March, which plans to reduce scope 1 and 2 emissions by 55% and Scope 3 emissions by 15-20% this decade compared to 2019 and reach net zero by 2050.

“I am proud to announce this agreement with one of the major players in the energy sector. The agreement will contribute to our joint ambitions on decarbonisation,” says Thomas Møller, President of the Energy Division at Alfa Laval. “Our heat exchangers can increase energy recovery in refinery processes by more than 25% compared to traditional technology. By implementing those the industry can achieve increased energy savings which is good from both a climate and a financial perspective. It is a win- win scenario.”

Agustín Bonilla, Technical Services Director at Cepsa, says, “We are pleased to work with Alfa Laval on this new project. This collaboration helps to reinforce our sustainability commitments and generate a positive impact that will contribute to combat climate change and global warming.”
