Thermo-Flex Technologies, Inc.
Waste heat accounts for 57% of the energy consumption in the U.S., with approximately 60% of that heat expelled in low-temperature streams. For the Industrial sector specifically, this accounts for about one-third of the total energy consumed in the United States and is responsible for about one-third of fossil fuel related greenhouse gas emissions. As the industrial sector continues efforts to improve its energy efficiency, recovering waste heat losses provides an attractive opportunity for an emission free and less costly energy resource. However, no technology has been successfully marketed for low temperature streams (<250 °C).
To address this need, Thermo-Flex Technologies has a patented solution to economically and efficiently recover low-temperature waste heat!
