Rising fuel and electric costs, along with global warming concerns have changed the way industrial facilities view energy consumption. Process equipment and air pollution control systems that were installed several years ago may not reflect the energy conscious designs available today, analyzing these systems to determine energy reduction opportunities can be a very valuable practice. Recovering waste heat is one of the easiest and most utilized means of reducing energy demands at industrial facilities.
Using a Green Turbine in a hybrid truck or a hydrogen/fuel cell truck, can improve fuel efficiency with another 25%. Hybrid trucks with Green Turbine can extend their range by 20% by capturing waste heat from engine exhaust and converting it to electricity. In hybrid or fuel cell trucks about 10% of the waste heat can be converted to electricity. As waste heat is about 75% of the total energy input of a truck, this 10% is substantial.
Waste heat is found in virtually all forms of energy production as well as in motorized verhicles. It is becoming an extremely important and efficient way of generating electricity. Due to rising energy costs and legal requirements for reductions in CO2 emissions there is a high demand for energy efficient waste recovery systems.
Green Turbine can use heat energy from solar thermal collectors, solar panels and heat pipes to generate electricity for residential and small commercial applications. The waste heat from Green Turbine can be used for space heating or tap water heating.
Energent`s energy recovery technology has applications in many industrial fields. Waste heat is defined as heat produced by machines, electrical equipment and industrial processes for which no useful application is found, and is regarded as a waste by-product. Such heat can be produced by diesel engines or exhausted as flue gases. Utilizing Energent`s patented Variable Phase Cycle or high-efficiency Variable Phase Turbine in an Organic Rankine Cycle, these wasted energy sources can be used to produce valuable...
The ORCAN technologies focus on a wide range of the ORC systems, from the smallest ones (5 kW) up to bigger ORC systems producing 300 kW of electricity. Another flagship of this company includes zero energy consumption coolers - eCoolers. Tens of installations of these units all over Europe are evidence of first-rate quality of German technology. The supplier of expanders for ORC is the company Bitzer – the world number one in the field of producers of compressors.
They are classic heat exchangers when the technology requires for its operation to frustrate a certain amount of heat in these air exchangers. Classic installations are such that for heat frustration they use fans with high own consumption of electric energy for feeding fans. Thereby the circuit is cooled down by the given delta t. The principle of our coolers is the same, only with that difference that we use the input energy of heat just for the production of electric energy feeding fans of the cooler. Not by...
Large institutions such as colleges, universities, and hospitals present excellent opportunities to recover lost energy by utilizing Energent`s Microsteam® Turbine Power System. Often, a large amount of steam energy is wasted when high pressure steam is reduced to low pressure steam for heating and cooling processes. In many large institutions, this wasted energy can be harnessed to produce valuable electricity, lowering electricity costs and carbon emissions.
Alternative electricity generation with low CO2 impact is almost exclusively associated with solar and wind energy. Both energy sources have the disadvantage that supply is completely independent of demand. The low carbon energy landscape will alter greatly with the introduction of small scale (micro) CHP systems. These systems can kick-in when solar and wind are not adequate. Micro-CHP is the real on-demand, high efficiency, low carbon building block that will be the ideal supplement for wind and solar.
Reciprocating internal combustion engines are a widespread and well-known technology. They are available for a multitude of applications, with powers ranging from a few kilowatts to over 5 MW. Rank equipment can increase the power generation and, therefore, the efficiency of these systems.
Processes that create a synthetic gas (syn gas) in a gasification process for waste reduction, electricity generation, or steam production (CHP – combined heat and power processes) – commonly benefit from custom heat recovery systems.
Thermal Energy’s GEM steam traps and FLU-ACE heat recovery technologies have wide applications in the food and beverage industry. From breweries and bottling operations, to food processing, packaging, and other food and beverage operations, we can help you reduce your energy costs while lowering your greenhouse gas emissions.
Flared gases and NGLs can be re-purposed as fuel for flex-fuel, low-emissions LPP Combustion Power Systems, lowering production costs, reducing logistical burdens, and addressing Gas Capture Plan and other compliance issues with flaring and emissions. The ‘Lean, Pre-mixed, Pre-vaporized’ (LPP) equipment enables clean combustion of liquid fuels in gas turbines and industrial boilers and burners. In addition to flare-gas NGLs, the LPP Combustion Oilfield Power System also operates on a variety of...
We help hospitals save money by reducing their fuel bills while also lowering their greenhouse gas emissions. Our proven solutions can increase the efficiency of your heating and steam system to as much as 95% with typical project paybacks (for our combined technologies) within three to five years.
