The order comprises Alfa Laval compact heat exchangers which will be used to in the process of producing polymers, for further use in plastics products.

“Petrochemical processing is very energy intensive. By using energy-efficient heat exchangers like ours, customers can make substantial energy savings which have a positive effect on their bottom line. Reduced energy consumption also cuts the CO2 emissions which is good for us all,” says Susanne Pahlén Åklundh, President of the Energy Division.

Did you know that… Alfa Laval’s first subsidiary, outside of Sweden, was established in the U.S. already in 1885, two years after Alfa Laval was founded?
