Industrial Processes

Engineering and advanced technologies for the optimisation of processes.

INERCO offers its own development solutions for the economic and environmental improvement of industrial processes.

Our technological solutions have been successfully applied in thermal power stations, chemical plants and oil refineries.

At INERCO we design, build and install advanced technology systems and equipment which guarantee significant improvements in energy performance, in operating and maintenance costs, and in the reduction of environmental emissions (CO2, CO, NOx, SOx, particles, etc.).

At INERCO we also provide engineering services for diagnosing and optimising industrial processes.
