Project example: Open Sorption Process
Simple technology with a high utility value
The open sorption process is a combination of condensing appliance technology and absorption heat pumps.
This technology is highly beneficial in
- Waste Heat Recovery at high temperature levels
- Exhaust Gas Dehumidification (prevents vapour)
- Producing Industrial Water from the exhaust gases
The open sorption process has many benefits, some of which are the simple set-up and not requiring pressure tanks. The technology itself is also simply, can be scaled to need, is highly beneficial and cost-effective.
In this example (see picture) the Institute of Energy Systems and Fluid Engineering (IEFE) has combined the technology with a CHP and boiler plant (current project: 27 MW rated thermal input).
But other combinations are also possible:
- Wood combustion plant
- STIG process (Low-Cost-GUD)
- Methanation (P2G)
- Fuel cell
- Washing and drying process
- Coal-fired power plant
IEFE is seeking industry partners for these combinations to jointly develop new applications. Please contact us if interested.
