When the 20 year old heating system in Johnson Matthey Redwitz, Germany needed repairing or replacing, a decision was made to invest in a combined heat and power (CHP) unit.

CHP plants produce electricity and heat at the same time and are a more efficient and sustainable option compared to conventional heating systems. This was an ideal choice for our site as all of the heat and power produced by the system is used.

A smaller unit was initially installed for employees to gain experience on running CHP units efficiently and a decision will be made on investing in a large unit for the whole site.
