New industry demands
Steel companies are constantly facing increasing demands to reduce their environmental impact. With the Climeon Heat Power system the steel industry could recycle even more of their existing energy and reduce CO2 emissions.
Did you know that heat from a single steel plants could produce enough electricity to power more than 250,000 Indian homes?
Untapped energy source
All steel production generate large amount of waste heat, enough to deliver significant volumes of clean electricity. Imagine powering an entire small town with 100% clean electricity by using waste heat generated from your steel production. At the same time also significantly reducing the impact on the environment.
With the Climeon Heat Power system, steel plants can reduce transform what was previously a costly liability into a valuable asset, while making the earth a little greener in the process. In producing 30 MW of clean electricity with the Climeon Heat Power system, a typical Steel producer can potentially save up to 150,000 tons of CO2 emissions every year, which will significantly reduce the steel plants environmental impact.
Increase genset efficiency by lowering fuel cost and reducing the amount of CO₂ emitted
Short payback time
Leading payback time enabled by the world’s most efficient low temperature system
Plug and play design allows for fast and easy integration with plants existing systems with limited disruption.
The Heat Power process
The process is in fact quite simple.
The Climeon Heat Power system exploits the temperature difference between hot and cold water (or heat exchange of gas or steam with hot water) to generate clean electricity. At the same time, less carbon emissions are released into the atmosphere, improving the efficiency and reducing the environmental impact of the power plant.
Efficient, economical, profitable
The Climeon system combines high efficiency and low overall cost, driving significant savings in fuel and electricity costs, to create a powerful business case for the utilization of waste heat.
The technology operates at low pressure levels in comparison to traditional heat power solutions. For example, Organic Rankine Cycles (ORC) which operate at much higher-pressure levels, are both larger in size and less efficient at the low temperature where the largest bulk of waste heat is found. Climeon's low temperature levels allow delivery of up to 50% higher efficiencies than other solutions on the market, while creating a smaller carbon footprint from manufacturing.
What can electricity produced by heat power be used for?
Flexible and scalable design
The system's low pressure levels allows a compact and modular design, making it easily scalable from 150kW modules, to several 50 MW systems for larger installations. The modular design ensures optimal efficiency, even at partial load. Modules are automatically powered on, or off, to match thermal power whenever there us fluctuation in the heat source. Modules can be installed both indoors and outdoors. The Climeon system can be connected to any heat source, and comes as a complete product. It consists of only three moving parts per module: a turbine and two pumps.
The Climeon control system, Climeon Live, makes the system fully automatic. It optimizes performance in real time, to ensure maximum energy generation. Each Climeon module has multiple sensors delivering measurements. Data is collected and stored in the cloud for historical performance reporting. Climeon Live identifies potential faults before they arise, minimizing the risk of unplanned downtime. Climeon Live's API can also be integrated into external control systems, offering a valuable PR-message with emission-savings and clean electricity production output.
