Convert waste heat into eco-friendly energy

New developments, such as the organic Rankine cycle, help operations go ‘green’

Pending new rules on air emissions will require hydrocarbon processing facilities and other manufacturers, to monitor and to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from combustion sources. Waste streams, such as flue gas, contain GHGs as well as heat energy. Innovative thinking investigates using the organic Rankine cycle as one way to recover energy from flue-gas streams and yield “green” energy for the facility. Background.
