North American biomass plant installs CETY’s waste heat generator

By Clean Energy Technologies Inc. | March 20, 2018

Clean Energy Technologies Inc. announced March 20 that it has secured an order from a biomass plant in North America. The biomass plant utilizes wasted heat lost to the atmosphere through the exhaust stream to essentially produce free electricity with no additional fuel required.

After studying the facilities electrical, HVAC and plant process systems, it was determined that CETY's Organic Rankine Cycle Generator Clean Cycle II is ideal for capturing heat from the generators to produce substantial amounts of electricity. The result will be essentially "free" power as all the heat that is currently being rejected to the atmosphere through the exhaust will now be utilized by Clean Cycle II™ generator.

Kam Mahdi, CEO of CETY said, "Our customers continually evaluate ways to reduce their overall energy consumption and increase their return on investments. Our Organic Rankine Cycle generators have the ability to utilize Medium-Low temperature heat making them ideal for capturing wasted heat from a generator to drive a turbine to produce electricity resulting in a large reduction in electricity costs. This installation and commissioning of our biomass and CHP application will serve as another operating model to showcase to a large industry that is searching for energy savings solutions such as those that CETY offers. We look forward to introducing our proprietary heat to energy solutions to large numbers of biomass operations, high rise buildings, large reciprocating engines, and operations where large amounts of heat are lost, as these are excellent customers that can benefit substantially from our systems."

Twenty to 50 percent of industrial energy input is lost as waste heat in the form of hot exhaust gases, cooling water, and heat lost from hot equipment surfaces and heated products.

The Department of Energy claims combined-heat-and-power (CHP) heat recovery systems for under 500 kW represent 220,000 systems. CETY proprietary heat recovery systems are 140 kW and are right in the sweet spot where user's needs are the highest.  CETY is also entering the high rise market with its first installation slated for the 1540 Broadway high rise building in Manhattan.
