Waste to Energy

Turboden Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) technology can be profitably and efficiently used to produce electric and thermal power from waste and to enhance the efficiency of existing waste to energy plants. Turboden ORC turbogenerators in this application are able to produce up to 40 MW of electric power per single generator.

WASTE INCINERATION PLANT

Turboden solution in a Waste to Energy plant

HEAT TRANSFER FLUID: heat from waste combustion is transferred to the ORC working fluid by means of an intermediate circuit. The medium is typically thermal oil, but can also be saturated steam, pressurized water or directly the ORC working fluid.

MAKE YOUR BUSINESS MORE SUSTAINABLE

Designed according to specific client requirements, the ORC-based Waste to Energy plant is able to produce electric power only with an electrical efficiency up to 30% or Combined Heat & Power (CHP). Depending on specific characteristics of the waste, various waste combustion technologies and heat recovery exchangers may be employed.
