WASTE HEAT RECOVERY UNIT (WHRU)
Addressing the industry energy efficiency
the waste heat Problem
The generation of energy has become a very important problem both from the economic and environmental point of view. Therefore, we need to create technologies and systems that are capable of creating clean energy to use it in the most efficient way possible.
Despite the efforts, the industry continues to be one of the sectors where there is a great margin for improvement in terms of energy efficiency. It is estimated that approximately 60% of the energy consumed is lost in heat (in waste heat), which has a huge economic and environmental impact.
Our Solution: electricity from waste heat
At AEInnova, we are Energy Harvesting experts and we are developing a range of solutions related to the generation of electricity from waste heat. Our patented technology combines the latest advances in heat and thermoelectric materials with a sophisticated microelectronic system able to provide always the maximum point tracker.
These solutions are aimed to improving energy efficiency and reducing the CO2 footprint of the industry, as well as expansion of the Industry 4.0 paradigm, converting waste heat into electrical energy. Without complicated installations nor expensive maintenance.
the pathway to Industry 4.0
Industries need to improve its monitoring processes. Wired sensing solutions require high investment costs wile battery-powered wireless sensing solutions have high maintenance costs, a high enviromental impact and are tipically not suitable for ATEX environments due to the explosion risk of lithium batteries.
Indu-Eye is a batteryless and wireless product that overcomes the traditional problems of IoT implementation in Industry 4.0
WASTE HEAT RECOVERY UNIT (WHRU):
addressing the industry energy efficiency
The WHRU uses an awarded technology capable to convert waste heat into clean CO2 negative energy. This family of products is capable to generate electricity from hot surfaces allowing injecting it into the electricity network for self-consumption, promoting circular economy and reducing CO2 royalty payments.
On October 2, Dr. Raúl Aragonés gave the inaugural conference of the 26th academic year of the Salesian University School of Sarria (EUSS). His conference began with a review of the most relevant milestones of Humanity and then focused on the progress that has taken place in the last 150 years and its severe environmental consequences. In a second part, he reflected on the current energy model, which he defined as unfeasible, and then presented alternative technologies in energy generation. Finally, he made a special mention to the Energy Harvesting technologies, explaining the status and progress of the European LIFE […]
AEInnova has participated in the 24th World Energy Congress, an event organized by the World Energy Council and held in Abu Dhabi from September 9 to 12. Under the motto Energy for Prosperity has been a meeting point for all the actors involved in the energy transition and where after several days of collaborative work have been reaffirmed in the need to decarbonize the energy model and detailed the main challenges to achieve it.
On July 12, AEInnova held its first summer camp, a day when the whole team met to evaluate the work done and discuss future challenges.
