Green Energy - Applications

Our turbine generator GET recovers waste-energy - even residual quantities are usable!

So, an energy recovery with this new technology can be applied to many different industry areas:

   

Energy recovery in smelt furnace plants

In the industry that smelts metals, for example, the melting tanks are cooled by compressed air. The compressed air flows through cooling channels and absorbs heat. Normally, it is then released into the atmosphere without being used. With the new turbine generator, the compressed air, which is a waste product, can be reused profitably: The energy absorbed from the heat can be converted into electricity by the micro-expansion turbine and the integrated generator and then fed into the power grid.

 

   

Energy recovery in biogas plants

In some large biogas plants, residual energy is already being converted, though only in systems with a power range of 200 to 1,500 kW. The DEPRAG technology now enables energy recovery in smaller plants as well.

To further increase the efficiency of biogas plants methane can be fed into the natural gas network and energy can thereby be stored or transported. A large part of biogas is methane and carbon dioxide. A prerequisite for the feed-in is therefore that the carbon dioxide is removed from the biogas. This usually occurs at processing plants where carbon dioxide is present at the end stage at relatively high pressure and temperature levels. A large amount of the energy contained can be recovered using our GET.

 

   

Energy recovery at natural gas pipelines

Natural gas is pumped from the producing countries over thousands of kilometers to get to the consumer. To feed it into the regional networks in which low pressure prevails, the pressure must be decreased and the gas expanded. The domestic public services also reduce the gas pressure once more before the natural gas arrives in private households. The transformation of pressures in the gas lines means that valuable energy is being lost in the gas grid.

The DEPRAG GET turbine generator converts this energy into electric current, cost-effectively and without a large outlay.

The natural gas cools drastically due to expansion in the turbine. Natural gas must usually be preheated if the gas temperature should be above freezing after going through the turbine.

The unused heat energy is converted into electricity and can be used for its purposes or can be fed into the power network.

 

 

To Summarize:

The small, robust and compact turbine generator – hardly larger than a shoebox – can be installed  & decentralized, where even smaller amounts of residual energy should be converted to electricity. Our recovery system can be used in a variety of applications to convert process gases into electricity or even to utilize unused surplus heat.
