The industrial sector accounts for 1/3 of the total energy being consumed. Due to inefficiency around 20 to 50% of this energy becomes exhaust heat that could have been reused for «clean» power generation employing waste heat recovery systems. The demand for waste heat recovery is continuously growing globally under the rising commitment of the industry to reduce energy consumption, operational costs and carbon emissions.
Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) is a technology ideally suited for wide range of industrial processes heat recovery. As opposed to steam heat recovery systems, ORC can give better efficiency for lower temperature applications. However, existing market solutions have multiple limitations that prevent the common use of ORC technology.
Based on scientific research of Moscow Power Engineering University (MPEI) Elgen Technology team introduced and patented next generation organic Rankine cycle power generation unit which converts low and medium temperature heat into electrical energy with record market efficiency.
Pilot plant proved highest efficiency on the market - 28% (Against industry maximum - 19%) and winning features:
it’s the key component of the entire plant. The working fluid expands in the turbine making he blades spin. Mechanical energy is then converted in electricity by a generator directly coupled with the turbine shaft.
The working fluid flows through the heat exchangers, extracting the heat from industrial exhaust gases. Their exact geometry and configuration depend on the energy source and the total thermal input.
Brings the organic fluid from the condensation pressure to the maximum pressure of the cycle. The pump can be horizontal or vertical driven by an electric motor at variable rotating speed.
With the direct air to fluid heat exchanger, the organic fluid is cooled and liquefied before entering the pump. The use of air eliminates the requirement for water to treatment and make up. It is possible to use also a water cooled condenser.
Major drivers for international OCR market are growing government regulatory requirement, increasing concern towards environmental protection and the concern over rising energy prices.
Natural Gas Compressor Stations – waste heat from the exhaust of gas turbine-driven compressors into electricity. Russia is biggest end user
Petroleum refining - distillation (fractionation), thermal cracking, catalytic, and treatment
Cement industry - exhaust gases, clinker coolers
Heavy metals - coke ovens, blast furnaces for iron production, and basic oxygen furnaces for steel production
Pulp/Paper Industry - waste heat in the paper drying process
Chemical - petrochemistry, fertilizers, chlorine, ind. gases
Nuclear power plant - water cooling circuit
Elgen technology undertakes the entire product development, manufacturing and installation process of the ORC turbine and plant internally. The process includes:
We search for investor and strategic partner to continue global development of the company. On the current stage we need $ 0,7 — 1 mln to construct commercial prototype and begin international sales in 2018. Elgen Tech company is member of Russian State Skolkovo Foundation (https://sk.ru/foundation/) with grant opportunity to receive 50% of the needed money ammount. We need co-invesment in amount of $ 0,35 — 0,5 mln and offer co-investor 30-35 % of companies share.
We are ready to discuss most convenient forms of cooperation including joint venture in special economic zones, sales of license and co-development.
