Joint Technical Seminar on Waste Heat Power Regeneration by ORC technology

Date: 21 January 2022 (Friday)
Time: 18:45 - 20:00 (Registration at 18:30)
Venue: Online Seminar via Zoom

Programme Highlight:
Power generation by Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) technology is similar to a traditional steam turbine, but with a single, crucial difference. Instead of using water vapor, the ORC system vaporizes a high-molecular-mass organic fluid. Such technology has many possible applications, and counts more than 2.7 GW of installed capacity and 698 identified power plants worldwide. In recent years, ORC has become the prime workhorse when low temperature waste heat is recovered for power generation. It can be applied to heat and power plants or to industrial and farming processes such as organic products fermentation, hot exhausts from furnaces, marine diesel engines, and condenser of a power cycle.
In this seminar, the ORC principles and real-life applications will be illustrated. Benefits and difficulties during design / construction stages will be also discussed.
