Waste treatment units are often designed and equipped to supply hot water to heat networks in winter, but this heat is no longer valued in summer and must, nevertheless be evacuated.

An Enertime ORC machine allows the recovery of superheated water at 200 ° C, maybe even less, or residual low pressure steam to transform this thermal and electrical energy, thus increasing the energy efficiency of the waste treatment unit.

The high reliability and robustness of the ORC machines allow partial and automated loading functioning. All the thermal energy not consumed by the heat network is transformed into electricity.
