The Potential of ORC Flare Elimination

The Reality of Flaring The flaring of methane is commonplace at many landfills, biogas and wastewater treatment plants (WWTP), and oil and gas well sites across the globe. Industries routinely flare to dispose of unwanted gases and to prevent pressure build up. Not only are these flares a waste of…

What is “Cooling to Power”?

As the heat load is reduced, this allows cooling to power systems to prioritize the generation of clean electricity. When the cooling load increases the system will automatically adjust power output to fulfill engine cooling requirements, maintaining engine cooling independent of the generator’s operating status.

ORC Waste Heat Recovery Benefits

Ever notice the plumes of steam pumping out of cooling towers? You’re looking at wasted energy, wasted capital, and wasted opportunity. Waste heat is all around us and comes in many forms, from engine jacket water and heat from industrial processes to thermal oils and flue gases. When you take…

Stop Wasting Your Waste Heat

What is Waste Heat? Waste heat is an untapped, sustainable resource that goes largely underutilized today. Simply, it is the excess heat produced most commonly in power generation and industrial processes. According to the second law of thermodynamics, heat must be produced when converting a temperature difference into mechanical energy.…
