Heat Recovery: 20% of US Electrical Energy Possible Without Burning Any More Fuel
...it’s estimated that energy recovery systems installed in the U.S. industrial facilities could produce up to 20 percent of the country’s electricity needs without burning any additional fossil fuel. SourceRecovering electrical energy from industrial waste heat is a growing enterprise. Gigawatts of energy are escaping into the atmosphere as waste heat, when they could be recovered and turned into much needed electrical power--to power the new electric vehicle fleets and to empower economic growth.
China Energy Recovery Inc. is taking advantage of this valuable niche in China and Southeast Asia and Africa.
China Energy Recovery Inc. has announced the completion of two major waste-heat recovery systems in China, as well as plans for others in Malaysia and Congo. The company has also identified business development potential in the emerging biofuels industry that runs parallel with heat generation.The ability of a society to make productive use of waste is a good measure of its level of evolution.
...The energy recovery systems installed by CER in China are capable of generating approximately 14 megawatts of electricity and nearly 27 megawatts of directly usable heat energy through the capture and harnessing of waste-heat, the company said in a press release. The Malaysian project is intended for a biofuels combustion system with a planned production of 3 megawatts of electricity and 2.9 megawatts of heat energy, according to the company.
Qinghuan said CER has extensive experience in installing and operating systems in various industries, such as steel manufacturing, cement, paper mills, and petro-chemical. “Our systems have proven effective under extremely demanding circumstances and in many different types of industries,” he said. “We’re looking forward to these opportunities to expand our services into new regions and to further demonstrate to the global community the advanced solutions for heat energy recovery CER has achieved.” __Biomass
