Professor Jan Hofman
Jan is interested in research on heat recovery of sewer systems. Warm water enters the sewer system at all homes and heat recovery from it is an option to reduce the use of primary energy sources and CO2 emissions. Heat content in sewers can be predicted by stochastic behavioural simulations that feed into a hydraulic and heat balance model for a sewer network. The modelling can be used to find the best location for heat recovery in the sewer network.
