DEVELOPMENT OF AN INNOVATIVE HFC BASED ORC TURBINE ADDRESSING THE MARKET FOR SMALL TO MEDIUM SIZE WASTE HEAT ENERGY RECOVERY

31.05.2014

A French startup has developed an innovative very compact micro-turbine, based on an ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle), able to recover energy from smaller sources than traditional larger ORC projects.

The module is available for a range of 5 to 100 kW power generation and uses different HFC working fluids (HFC-134a, HFC-245fa, HFC-365mfc) for different temperatures, ranging from 80 to 500 C.

The ORC microturbine allows production of electricity by recovering waste heat and improving by 5 to 10 % the thermal efficiency of combustion engines that power generator groups, sea, river or road transport, or from cogeneration units.
