ElectraTherm receives award for heat to power innovation

Popular Science has named the ElectraTherm Green Machine one of the top technology innovations of 2008. As a winner of the Best of What’s New Award in the Green Tech category, the ElectraTherm Green Machine stands out as the first commercially viable generator to make electricity from low temperature, residual industrial heat that has, until now, gone to waste.

Using patented heat and pressure recovery technology, ElectraTherm employs its proprietary twin-screw expander to generate fuel-free, emissions-free electricity at the lowest operating costs and fastest paybacks in the industry, the company reports. Texas distributor Gulf Coast Green Energy installed the first commercial 50kW ElectraTherm Green Machine this summer at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. The machine has exceeded its 50kW output rating by 20 percent, garnering positive reviews from SMU’s world renowned Geothermal Laboratory.
