The waste heat given off in industrial processes in the low-temperature range up to 100°C constitutes an energy potential in all industrialized countries that is left largely untapped. EAWC Technologies offers a unique process for generating an electric current from low-temperature heat, thus enabling the potential from the heat produced as a discarded by-product of many industrial processes to be made use of.
In addition to this, the process can also be applied to generate electricity by utilizing the heat from other sources, including: solar energy; geothermal heat; technically conditioned waste heat flows from power stations; and, combined heat-and-power (CHP) plants.
Through the specific utilization of low-temperature heat for the generation of electricity, a major worldwide contribution could be made to reducing the consumption of fossil energy resources and cutting down on CO2 emissions.
The system can be applied, for instance, by utilizing the waste heat from liquid media at temperatures above 70°C.
The unique breakthrough that the energy modul has achieved is to make use of existing, but up to now completely neglected resources to produce electrical energy. With the Energy Module, low-pressure steam that to-date was considered as a waste product deriving from a range of industrial processes, is transformed into electrical energy - a significant step forward in zero-carbon power generation, having both economic and environmental benefits.
