low temperature waste heat News

  • Running on waste heat

    Original story at MIT News It’s estimated that more than half of U.S. energy — from vehicles and heavy equipment, for instance — is wasted as heat. Mostly, this waste heat simply escapes into the air. But that’s beginning to change, thanks to thermoelectric innovators such as MIT’s Gang ...

  • A New Way to Harness Waste Heat

    Original story at MIT News Vast amounts of excess heat are generated by industrial processes and by electric power plants; researchers around the world have spent decades seeking ways to harness some of this wasted energy. Most such efforts have focused on thermoelectric devices, solid-state materials that can produce electricity ...

  • A new low cost system for successfully reducing heating costs in buildings.

    Airius Europe, a new company to Europe, finally has the answer to destratification problems in buildings. Airius systems can efficiently utilise wasted heat which sits in ceiling areas of buildings and effectively re-use this energy to equalise the interior temperatures and dramatically reduce heating costs. Most companies are surprised and unaware at the difference in temperature between the ...


  • Waste Heat Utilization Equipment Market in China

    China has rich waste heat resources. Especially in steel, nonferrous, chemical, cement, building materials, oil & petrochemical, light industry, coal and other sectors, waste heat resources approximately occupy 17%-67% of the total fuel consumption, of which, recyclable waste heat resource roughly stand up 60% of the total waste heat resources. At present, China’s waste heat utilization ...


  • Heat Exchangers Recover and Recycle Excess and Wasted Energy

    In copper production, heat generated during extraction processes can be harnessed and transferred back into the system using heat exchangers, resulting in significant energy savings and unparalleled yield. “Compact heat exchangers, such as gasketed and welded ...

  • NREL Reveals Potential for Capturing Waste Heat via Nanotubes

    A finely tuned carbon nanotube thin film has the potential to act as a thermoelectric power generator that captures and uses waste heat, according to researchers at the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The research could help guide the manufacture of thermoelectric devices based on either single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) films or ...

  • New lower cost SS heat exchanger helps more companies turn wasted exhaust into reduced energy costs

    There is a way to capture the exhaust from manufacturers’ baking, drying, heating, or other processes and turn that exhaust into energy to run manufacturing equipment, or even heat the building. With natural gas rates already astonishingly high and some experts predicting hikes of over 30 percent this winter, the above statement certainly gets attention.Toledo, Ohio-based Exothermics, Inc has ...


  • ElectraTherm Enters Canada’s Natural Gas Compression Market Converting Waste Heat to Power at a Natural Gas Compressor Station

    ElectraTherm, a leader in distributed waste heat to power generation, partnered with ConocoPhillips to install two Green Machines at a natural gas compression station in Cessford, Alberta, Canada. The two Green Machine 4400s, ElectraTherm’s ORC generators producing electrical output up to 65kWe each, run in parallel off the waste heat of a Waukesha 7042 natural gas engine. The waste heat ...

  • Material may help autos turn heat into electricity

    Researchers have invented a new material that will make cars even more efficient, by converting heat wasted through engine exhaust into electricity. In the current issue of the journal Science, they describe a material with twice the efficiency of anything currently on the market. The same technology could work in power generators and heat pumps, said project leader Joseph Heremans, Ohio Eminent ...


  • Stockholm commuters generate hot water heating

    Jernhusen, a real estate company in Stockholm, has found a way to channel the body heat from the hoards of commuters passing through Stockholm's Central Station to warm another building just across the road. Jernhusen decided the warmth that everybody generates naturally was in fact a resource that was going to waste. The use of body heat reduces energy cost of heating the office building by 25%. ...


  • Biomass heats up luxury holiday homes

    An award-winning holiday retreat on the Scottish Borders is seeing the financial and carbon saving benefits of biomass, thanks to a district heating system from Euroheat, and the commercial Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). Eildon Cottages, in Melrose, is a holiday destination comprising a converted 18th century farm house, with six newly built self-catering cottages. Prior to biomass, the ...
