Trane Technologies relies on 3D Printing for Heat Pump Development

Trane Technologies has announced its participation in three projects designed to accelerate the efficiency of next-generation heat pumps to reduce energy and emissions in various industrial sectors.

The projects were recently awarded grants by the U.S. Department of Energy for research and development of transformative decarbonization technologies.

“We are relentlessly innovating smart solutions for a net-zero future and helping to answer the call for deploying climate solutions at-scale,” said Paul Camuti, executive vice president and chief technology and sustainability officer of Trane Technologies. “We look forward to working with our research partners as we continue to challenge what’s possible for a more sustainable world.”

The research partners include Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Purdue University and Texas A&M University’s Engineering Experiment Station. They are developing and testing heat pumps that enable the electrification of high-temperature heating processes in carbon-intensive industries. These include projects such as an ultra-high temperature heat pump, an industrial heat pump for higher temperatures, and a high-performance heat pump system for food drying.

The new heat pump innovations expand Trane Technologies’ role as an industry leader in decarbonization solutions. Trane is advancing its 2030 sustainability commitments, including its Gigatons Challenge and its goal to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
