  • Is waste heat the silver bullet?

    The energy industry tends to get stuck on certain words. Silver bullet is one of them. Insiders and policymakers often like to say there is no silver bullet to fix US energy woes. We need a portfolio of solutions – renewables, efficiency, smart grid, transmission expansion, coal sequestration, etc. That may be true, but Tom Casten begs to differ. Casten is a bit of a rock star in the field of ...

  • Utilizing Waste Heat For Power

    Continuous duty gen-sets provide base-load power generation in diverse applications around the globe. However, high fuel costs and engine maintenance are pain points felt by operators. A low-maintenance path to significant fuel savings and lower emissions is what the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) had in mind when they approached ElectraTherm to integrate the company’s Green Machine waste ...

  • Exergy or the entropic drive: waste heat and free heat

    The dissipation of exergy is conventionally held to be the inference of the entropy growth. In this conventional perspective, the universe is running down towards equilibrium or heat death. Recent cosmological findings of 1998–2000 give empirical evidence that the universe is instead moving away from equilibrium while its entropy increases. We can better comprehend this non–equilibrium world by ...

  • WEISS provides for the heat - and disposes of the waste case study

    The very first time PLIMOB learnt about Weiss was in 1995 at which time contacts at IKEA told about combustion plants from WEISS. IKEA is the most important customer for PLIMOB so the management listened to the recommendations. PLIMOB is producing wood furniture; large quantities of wood chips and sawdust are a spin-off effect from their production. Traditionally wood-working industries – ...

  • CDQ waste heat boiler for iron and steel industry manufacturer

    Energy use is additionally a major supply of emissions from the iron and steel industry, making energy efficiency improvements a lovely chance to reduce both emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases. The global steel industry has recently taken the lead on developing future low-carbon iron and steelmaking technologies. Waste heat boiler ...


  • Seawater desalination utilising waste heat by low-temperature evaporation

    Utilisation of waste heat is one of the ecofriendly ways to produce low-cost desalted water. Keeping this in mind, Low-Temperature Evaporation (LTE) desalination technology utilising low-quality waste heat in the form of hot water (as low as 50?C) or low-pressure steam (0.13 bar) has been developed to produce high-purity water (conductivity ...

  • How to recuperate industrial waste heat beyond time and space

    Any fossil fuel energy, after industrial utilisation such as combustion and electric generation, is finally emitted in the form of waste heat to the atmosphere. A database on waste heat revealed that a large amount of energy can be saved by reusing the high-temperature industrial waste heat efficiently. Thus, this paper introduces cutting-edge technologies for heat recovery by three promising ...

  • Heat recovery from wastewater

    Heat recovery from gray water is particularly important in water-intensive industries such as pulp and paper plants, dairies and breweries. Rather than flushing used water down the drain, consider whether a heat exchanging system can help you put that energy to work in your process again. Most plant operators arc aware of the need to save money and reduce the environmental impact of their plant ...
