PowerVerde's ORC Systems utilize the Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) to turn heat into pressure. This pressure is then used to power an expander and make clean electricity with no pollution. The system can work on any heat source including: waste heat, geothermal, biomass, solar thermal, etc.
There is much heat which is currently being wasted in the form of combustion gas, excess
low-pressure steam, or hot water/thermal fluid. These are normally discarded into the atmosphere via an exhaust stack, cooling tower, etc. It is likely that much of this energy can be converted to electric power for use, or sold back to the utility grid.
PowerVerde is currently developing a steam powered system to generate electricity
directly without the need for an ORC.
This will greatly broaden the number of markets that can utilize PowerVerde's technology.
