The Art of Energy Harvesting
The pathway to Industry 4.0
WASTE HEAT RECOVERY UNIT (WHRU)
Addressing Energy Efficiency in Industry
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.
Next December 10 we will participate in the climate conference in Madrid. There we will talk, of course, about the collection of energy from waste heat, presenting the advances of our InduEye platform and our European projects LIFE HEAT-R and FET Harvestore. It is essential that we all contribute as much as possible to solve the most transcendental problem of humanity. There is no planet B!
We are pleased to inform that APPlus has certified our InduEye with the CE marking. The CE marking ensures conformity with health, safety, and environmental protection standards for products sold within the European Economic Area. This process implies the end of the prototype phase that began several years ago and has been successfully implemented in different industrial environments, mainly in the petrochemical sector. Our following milestone, in which we are already working, will be the certification to operate in explosive environments (ATEX).
AEInnova participates in the Day of Reflection and Debate organized by the Chair of Leadership and Democratic Governance of ESADE
On September 30th, the World Day of Reflection and Debate, organized by ESADE’s Chair in Leadership and Democratic Governance, took place in Món Sant Benet. A day where sixty personalities from the different sectors of the Catalan socioeconomic and political fabric had the opportunity to reflect on the 2030 agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals.
