Convert waste to energy with improved fuel efficiency
Where extra power is the goal, the ETC system is a proven way to increase the total power output of a generator. Renewable power producers, using biogas (anaerobic digestion, landfill gas, wood gas etc) and liquid bio-fuels, can generate more power from the same renewable resources by converting waste to energy, something that is especially important in incentivised green power markets.
Schnell Motoren AG significantly increased its market share by integrating ETC technology with the company’s dual-fuel CHP units. With ETC, the Schnell CHP unit achieved in excess of 48% electrical efficiency, enabling end-users to generate additional power and claim a higher feed-in tariff, which was triggered by genset efficiency performance of over 45%.
In many countries around the world, the levels of incentives available for renewable energy make a compelling economic case for using ETC technology to generate additional energy from waste.
Generator packagers serving renewable power sector customers with a higher efficiency genset with ETC technology, enable power producers and end-users to increase their revenues.
The extra power from the ETC technology can also be used to achieve a higher power density from the same generator package, something that is highly valued by rental companies and others looking to reduce logistical and other operating costs.
