Year Founded:

Triogen has managed to realize an exceptionally high efficiency using the Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) principle. Unique to this principle, is the fact that this small power unit will generate energy from, often, unused waste heat from production processes, on a fully CO2 neutral basis! In a period of about 5 years, the ORC can produce electricity with a monetary equivalent in excess of 1 million euro!

How does the recycling of waste heat create profits for your company?

  1. Currently you don't use the (residual)heat which is produced in your business processes
  2. This heat is transformed by the ORC into electricity
  3. You could use this electricity yourself or sell (some of) it to the power grid as green electricity.
  4. This all happens without extra CO2 emissions. This is good for the environment and could provide you with CO2 allowances (and therefore subsidy).
  5. In addition the ORC produces its own residual heat which could be reused again in other business processes or could be provided to a heat network

The Triogen ORC offers a contribution to resolving the global heating issue: you generate sustainable electricity and thus avoid CO2 emissions.
