WOW Energy has developed two unique technologies: WOWGen® and WOWClean® as part of its commitment to meeting the world’s energy and environmental challenges WOWGen® is our patented process for generating power from waste heat sources. Industrial operations spend large amounts of money on energy, much of which is wasted as heat going up the stack. This waste heat can be put to excellent use to generate electrical power. Benefits include * Use of waste industrial process heat as a fuel source that, in most cases, has represented nothing more than thermal pollution for decades. * Generation of significant power with no incremental emissions; this generation typically offsets power currently being produced by coal generation plants. Each MW of generation effectively eliminates 21 tons of NOX, 59 tons of SO2, and 8,615 tons of CO2 emissions annually. * Stable, predictable generation capability on a 24x7 basis. This means that even when the sun has set, or the wind has ceased blowing, the facility can be generating clean, reliable power. * Distributed generation; thereby reducing transmission line congestion and losses. In addition, distributed generation eliminates the 4% to 8% power losses due to transmission and distribution associated with central generation. Beneficial applications of heat recovery power generation can be found in Industry (e.g. steel, glass, cement, lime, pulp and paper, refining and petrochemicals), Power Generation (CHP, MSW, biomass, biofuel, traditional fuels, gasifiers, diesel engines) and Natural Gas (pipeline compression stations, processing plants). The presentation will cover the technology, as well as case studies in power generation using reciprocating engines, biomass power generation, and steel industry.
