Abstract
On renewable energy installations such as biogas-, landfill gas- and bio oil engines and even at all kinds of industrial plants lots of waste heat is dissipated into the atmosphere. On the other hand, there is a proven, commercially available technology to convert it (partially) into electricity. This is the Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC), used since several decades within, for example, geothermal plants. Applications of the same technology for waste heat recovery are rather premature. To transfer this technology to such apllications, practical research in collaboration with industry was performed with as output: technology review (used working fluids to replace water/steam, expander types...), a market overview, view on technical and economical feasibility, simulation models, comparison between the steam cycle and ORC and selection criteria, industrial case studies (landfill- and biogas engines, steel, glass, paper, automotive, chemical, clay, water treatment...industry). As a conclusion, ORC-projects were found being very attractive on renewable energy applications with the help of green certificates. On non-renewable industrial cases, economic fesibility strongly depends from integration costs and electricity prices.
