The DECAGONE project has just kicked-off! The first meeting took place in Paris on June 21-22 with the participation of all partners. Led by Enertime, the consortium is composed of 16 partners from 10 European countries.
The main objective of DECAGONE is to develop beyond state-of-the-art technological solutions to increase energy efficiency in industry and to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) and air pollutant emissions from industry by recovering excess industrial (waste) heat and converting it into electricity.
The technical solution is based on Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) technology. It will achieve scalability to higher power levels, improve cost effectiveness, increase the input temperature ranges and a significant improvement in compactness, allowing wider application and more effective heat recovery from a wide range of industrial processes. The solution will be demonstrated in the TŘINECKÉ ŽELEZÁRNY steel Mill in Czech Republic with a 2 MW installation.
Looking forward to working together in the next 4 years!
