Converting waste heat into clean electricity
Approximately 50% of the world’s total energy consumption is lost as waste heat.
This is enough energy to power more than three billion households, or an amount equal to what the US, China, and India, consume annually.
Vortex Power Systems is a revolutionary technology, converting low grade waste heat into clean electricity by generating and harnessing the power of an atmospheric vortex.
Using low grade waste heat recovered from thermal processes in industry, Vortex Power Systems technology generates and controls a freestanding atmospheric buoyancy vortex, and harnesses its power using a vortex turbine to create clean electricity.
HOw we can use this technology
The Vortex system works as an ‘add on’ to existing on-site infrastructure.
The VPS system takes warm water traditionally sent to cooling towers and utilises the otherwise waste low grade heat to create the right conditions for the formation of a naturally occurring phenomena, the water spout, converting heat into kinetic energy. The vortex simultaneously cools the warm water, as a cooling tower would, and returns it back to the process.
