Exhaust Waste Heat Recovery
Successful oil and gas production demands a massive, constant supply of energy to a plant or refinery. This energy is typically provided by a large generator, such as a gas turbine. Plants and refineries lose energy efficiency by emitting significant amounts of waste heat into the environment.
II-VI Marlow thermoelectric power generation technology offers an alternative. Hot and cold side heat exchangers applied with a thermoelectric power generation system will harness waste heat and convert it to useful DC power, thereby enabling high performance under extreme temperatures. This power can be supplied back to the grid or power various other systems, in turn reducing dependency on generators and increasing the efficiency of energy consumption.
Low-temperature exhaust waste heat applications are currently available. Higher temperature applications designed to capture 500°C are in development.
