HFC BASED ORC MACHINES SUPPLY ELECTRICITY FROM SAWMILL WASTE

07.02.2017

A 150 kW HFC-based ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle) machine has been installed to deliver uninterruptible power to a developing country sawmill, to which the electricity supply was not reliable enough.

In order to guarantee to the plant continuity of its electrical power supply, sawmill waste is burned and the resulting heat is converted by ORC machines into constant production of the electricity needed, independently from the grid.
