Abstract This project involves the research and development of novel systems to recover and re-distribute energy in food processing and manufacturing premises, especially where there are demands for refrigeration and heating on-site and localised. The project also aims to optimise the production of heated water as a process requirement for heating, cleaning or sterilisation, by re-cycling both the waste heat and treating the waste water stream, so that it may be recoverable and re-cycleable.The user industry attraction will be local energy recovery for useful purposes, including water supply streams. Treatment of water itself for recycling is an additional attraction reducing external energy, resource treatments and requirements. The proposed developments may be applied within an industrial complex that can provide source and "sink" needs, or inter business or community to other industrial or domestic premises.This approach therefore minimises the industrial consumption of energy and diverts it to other localised energy users,which could be a range of uses, such as aligned similar site or other local heat consuming processes or domestic or office localised heating needs
