Early Stage Startup





Tagline

Monetizing waste heat



Elevator Pitch

We have developed a new technology for converting low grade waste heat(water at 90°C) to electricity or motive power. Essentially, it is an engine that runs on hot water. Our product - the Exergyn Drive™ - is the first technology to commercially convert low grade heat to power.
Our market is essentially, any process that generates a regular output of low grade heat, typically in the range of 77˚C - 90˚C, with flow rates of a minimum of 2-3 l / s , has the raw material for our energy conversion technology. Areas of application are any industrial processes with low grade waste water; waste conversion plants using incineration technologies, landfill sites extracting gas to generate electricity, community energy / district heating schemes, smart city hubs, geothermal sites and shipping.
The AD Bio gas industry is a particular focus for us, due to the huge quantities of waste heat that are routinely produced and the high value placed on the electricity that is generated.

Product

Converts low grade heat (water @ 90°C) to electrical power - The Exergyn Drive™



Why we are ecofriendly

• Efficient Conversion. The Exergyn Drive™ can convert the heat energy that was previously waste, at an efficiency of 6% at 90˚C, and at higher efficiency rates at higher water temperatures. Ultimately we aim to achieve an efficiency in excess of 10%
• Risk Free to Existing Plant & Environment. The engine does not require any toxic fluids to operate and therefore is highly compatible and extremely safe to operate in a variety of working environments. All that is required for it’s operation is a hot water and electrical connection. The installation can be located internally in the plant room or externally in a containerised skid.
• Modular Design. The engine is sized to meet customer needs; for example a 1MW CHP would be matched by a 75KW Exergyn Drive™. A modular approach enables a number of drives can be linked for an optimally sized and easily commissioned installation.
• New & Retrofitable Applications. The engine can be incorporated as part of a new plant design or easily retrofitted into an existing installation.
• Environmentally Friendly. The engine does not produce any emissions as the hot water required to run the engine is existing waste. Electricity used local to the point of generation is not subject to grid transmission losses.
• High Value Proposition. Simple ROI is typically 3 years with an expected lifecycle of 20 years
