Electratherm "Green Machine"

Many businesses in Kentucky would like some way to capture and reuse the heat they lose in their processes.  Energy is typically lost when heat escapes up a vent or when hot water is used and then sent down a drain.  A new company believes they can help businesses use that wasted energy by turning it into electricity.

According to Electratherm, the "Green Machine" is designed to use waste gaseous heat or hot water to "boil a chemical working fluid into gas."  The gas turns twin screws that then turn a generator.  Electratherm's 5'x5'x7' model will produce 50 kw of energy using hot liquids or gasses.  Electratherm's Kentucky offices are in Nicholasville and Louisville.
