Capture waste heat and release at a higher temperature through a physico-chemical reaction
A cyclic closed-loop system requiring no additional water or chemical input, QCHT mimics how nature captures and releases energy
Using the reversible polymerisation of phosphates in an industrial technology to capture waste heat and turn this into new valuable process heat, the Qpinch Heat Transformer recovers residual heat from 40 °C and up, transforming it to new process heat with temperature increases of up to 100 °C. Applicable on a megawatt scale throughout all industries that use industrial heat - including food and feed, oil & chemicals, paper and pulp, cement and manufacturing – it requires only marginal electrical energy consumption and can pay for itself in less than five years.
