Best available technology

Waste Heat Recovery (WHR) is a profitable, low-carbon, environmentally friendly system to produce electricity by recovering heat from industrial processes. Our WHR systems are based on the Rankine Cycle a proven way to produce power from the waste heat.

Waste heat recovery systems consists in a heat source (boiler) that generates a high-pressure vapor which is subsequently expanded through a turbo generator producing power. The thermodynamic cycle is performed by a working fluid.

There are 2 different kind of working fluids:

  • Water (most commonly used) : Steam Rankine Cycle (SRC) technology.
  • Organic fluid: Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) technology.

The kind of working fluid used influences the boiler design, mainly for difference in working pressure and temperature.
