The project will develop and demonstrate an advanced thermoelectric generator system to produce electricity from waste heat. The recipient will use cutting edge heat exchangers integrated with innovative thermoelectric generator modules to max efficiency and minimize cost. The successful demonstration of the technology will open a new economic pathway for currently wasted heat from industrial and other operations.
The project consists of installation of a waste heat to power system in an existing manufacturing facility. The skid mounted system will utilize existing waste heat at the facility to generate electricity. This installation is a minor alteration to the existing facility which involves negligible expansion of use.
The project involves collection of data for research and evaluation purposes. Data will be collected to evaluate various performance parameters of the newly developed system. It will not result in a serious disturbance to an environmental resource.
