What is WHOP?
Developed by Nrgtek, T2M Global Technology Partner
Waste Heat to Power (WHOP) technology is a non-combustion, osmotic power technology protected by US and international patents. It replaces lower-efficiency heat engines/turbines with ultra-high efficiency water turbines (85-95%) driven by osmotic pressure. High osmotic potential polymers coupled with high-flux membranes produce polymer-water solutions with high hydraulic head and flow. This high energy polymer-water solution drives the water turbine, proven for its high efficiency and reliability.
Revenue from Low-Temperature Waste Heat
Rejection of waste heat costs money. When upgraded to electricity using T2M’s advanced energy technologies, low-temperature waste heat streams become a revenue generator. WHOP can significantly reduce industrial and commercial plants’ dependency on the power grid.
The largest amount of unutilized waste heat from industrial operations is in the low-temperature group (150-300°F). There is currently no commercially available cost-effective technology to benefit from this wasted heat because it is economically difficult to recover and reuse. Upgrading this low-temperature waste heat to higher value electricity at competitive costs will deliver greater sustainability to industrial operations.
