PRODUCTION OF ENERGY WITH WHICH TO GENERATE ELECTRICITY
TO BE FED INTO THE PUBLIC GRID OR FOR YOUR OWN CONSUMPTION
In a world where the pursuit of zero-carbon factories, cities and economies is an urgent aim for individuals, corporations and governments, this Energy Module offers zero-carbon electricity simply, reliably and economically.
The Energy Module turns low pressure steam of 0.6 to 5 bars - usually an industrial waste product - into electrical energy. With ZERO CO2 emissions.
No additional energy resources are required. Not a single ounce of gas or coal or oil, no wind turbine and no solar system is needed to operate the Energy Module.

The waste heat given off in industrial processes in the low-temperature range up to 100°C constitutes an energy potential in all industrialized countries that is left largely untapped. EAWC Technologies offers a unique process for generating an electric current from low-temperature heat, thus enabling the potential from the heat produced as a discarded by-product of many industrial processes to be made use of. In addition to this, the process can also be applied to generate electricity by utilizing the heat from other sources, including: solar energy; geothermal heat; technically conditioned waste heat flows from power stations; and, combined heat-and-power (CHP) plants. Through the specific utilization of low-temperature heat for the generation of electricity, a major worldwide contribution could be made to reducing the consumption of fossil energy resources and cutting down on CO2 emissions.
The extent of energy that can be generated with the Energy Module would be determined by the availability of low-temperature heat in line with the performance characteristics of the expansion engine employed. Internal studies into the efficiency of the process have been confirmed by independent technical studies.
The conversion of heat into mechanical and/or electrical energy using a cyclical process such as the ORC process, is based on the following steps: evaporation through heating; relaxation; condensation; heat adduction, and, return of the condensate.
The system can be applied, for instance, by utilizing the waste heat from liquid media at temperatures above 70°C:
- Any condensate in the food industry (e.g. breweries, fruit juice plants, milk powder production)
- Cooling water in block heat-and-power plants
- Processed water in the chemicals industry
The generation of electricity from waste heat is of benefit to all businesses that have unused thermal energy available or are losing this potential source of energy through the uncontrolled release of heat. Target customers are therefore enterprises operating in the following sectors:
- Block heat-and-power plant operators
- Aluminium smelters
- Solar thermic
The unique breakthrough that the ENVA has achieved is to make use of existing, but up to now completely neglected resources to produce electrical energy: With the Energy Module, low-pressure steam that to-date was considered as a waste product deriving from a range of industrial processes, is transformed into electrical energy - a significant step forward in zero-carbon power generation, having both economic and environmental benefits, such as:
Saving fossil fuels
- Environmental aspect
Using your own, self-made and clean energy
- Reducing costs for procuring (fossil) energy
Feeding the produced energy into a public grid
- Quick amortization of procurement costs
Reducing CO2 emissions
- Certificates for emissions trading
