Looking Towards the Future
april 2, 2024

Our first commercial application effectively converts hot flue gases (HFG) into electricity. Stirlingversal’s engine modules can seamlessly be integrated to your energy system to transform gases exceeding 700°C into usable electricity.

Hot flue gas Stirling engines are well-suited to harness thermal energy from various industries where high-temperature flue gases are produced as byproducts. Typical industries that generate thermal energy in the form of hot flue gases suitable for Stirling engines are:

1. Power Generation:
• Biomass power plants
2. Cement Production:
• Cement kilns produce hot flue gases during the clinker manufacturing process.
3. Steel Manufacturing:
• Steel mills generate hot flue gases from processes such as blast furnaces and steelmaking.
4. Chemical Processing:
• Chemical plants often produce hot flue gases during various chemical reactions and processes.
5. Waste-to-Energy Plants:
• Incineration of municipal solid waste generates hot flue gases that can be utilized.
6. Paper and Pulp Industry:
• Pulp mills and paper production facilities produce hot flue gases during combustion processes.
7. Glass Manufacturing:
• Glass furnaces generate high-temperature flue gases during the melting and forming of glass.
8. Food Processing:
• Some food processing facilities produce hot flue gases during cooking, drying, or other thermal processes.
9. Textile Industry:
• Textile manufacturing processes, such as drying and curing, can produce hot flue gases.
10. Brick and Ceramics Manufacturing:
• Kilns used in brick and ceramics production generate hot flue gases.
11. Oil Refineries:
• Various processes in oil refineries produce hot flue gases that can be harnessed for energy.
12. Biomass Facilities:
• Biomass combustion plants, including those using wood or agricultural residues, produce hot flue gases.
13. District Heating Plants:
• District heating systems that use combustion or industrial processes for heat production.
14. Petrochemical Industry:
• Some petrochemical processes generate hot flue gases that can be used for energy conversion.
14. Heat Treatment Processes:
• Hot flue gases from metallurgical process furnaces, etc.
