Electra Therm has developed a technology to convert ‘waste heat ‘into electricity. The Green Machine is enable to create clean energy from from heat thrown off as a buy product of manufacturing of other operations. It is the first commercially viable heat generator. What Electra Therm’s technology has also in common with geothermal technology is that it requires no fossil fuels and creates no emissions.
Making waste heat is the newest source of clean energy. But it is rarely include as a renewable energy source, because waste heat derives from factories and plants that run on fossil fuels. But it meets defintion of both clean energy generation as well as energy conservation.
The Green Machine has an output of 50 kW of electricity generation, placing them in the small medium size segment of this business. In the lower output there are currently more creations of converting waste heat to electricity. For example the Green Turbine 1-15 kW is a mCHP solution that uses existing waste heat to produce power, (electricity) heat and/or hot water. It can be driven not only fossil fuels, by any fuel type : natural gas, propane, waste heat Biomass, fuel cell, solar PV Thermal.
