Innovative chemical heat transformer on a waste incinerator plant that produces steam for generation of electricity (power plant)

The skid is integrated in the close proximity of a waste heat source (of at least 500 kW) and the current steam network. The steam produced by our heat transformer can be injected directly into the current steam network. By reducing significant heat losses over long distance and the compatibility with the current steam utilities, a cheap and efficient integration is made possible.
