New industry demands
Steel companies are constantly facing increasing demands to reduce their environmental impact. With the Climeon´s Heat Power system the steel industry could recycle more of their energy, reduce fuel needs and CO2 emissions.
Did you know that heat from a single steel plant could produce enough electricity to power more than 250,000 Indian homes?
Untapped energy source
Steel production generates large amounts 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. Climeon Heat Power system offers steel plants a simple, cost effective method to significantly reduce their impact on the environment.
With the Climeon Heat Power system, steel plants can transform what was previously a costly liability into a valuable asset. 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, significantly reducing the steel plants environmental impact.
Increase the plants efficiency by lowering fuel cost and reducing the amount of CO₂ emitted
Short payback time
High ROI and low payback time is 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 simple.
The Climeon Heat Power system utilizes the temperature difference between hot and cold water (or the heat exchange of gas or steam with hot water) to generate clean electricity. This results in less carbon emissions, improved efficiency and overall reduced environmental impact of the steel plant.
Efficient, economical, profitable
The Climeon system combines high efficiency conversion of heat to electricity with a low cost, providing significant savings in fuel and electricity costs.
The proprietary technology operates at a lower pressure than traditional heat power solutions utilizing an Organic Rankine Cycle, ORC. The decrease in pressure allows our units to be smaller while still having double the efficiency of traditional ORC.
Climeon's ability to utilize low temperatures (70-120°C) with 50% higher efficiencies than other solutions makes it the global leader of low temp heat conversion technology.
What can heat power from one steel plant be used for?
Flexible and scalable design
The system's low pressure levels allow for a compact and modular design, making it easily scalable from a single 150kW module, to 50 modules resulting in 7.5mW. The modular design ensures optimal efficiency, even at partial load. Modules are automatically powered on, or off, to match thermal power, whenever there are fluctuations in the heat source. Modules can be installed indoors or 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, is a state of the art, customizable PLC. Each Climeon module is outfitted with multiple sensors. Climeon takes this data and optimizes performance in real time, to ensure maximum energy generation. 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. Climeon live can also store data directly to the cloud for reverence and allow for remote control and monitoring.d specifications.
