The GREEN TURBINE TM is a generator
using external combustion, electricity can be
generated with every available fuel. External
combustion makes its possible to control
combustion and therefore emission levels to
a very high degree. As the temperature of
the steam is relatively low (200 C), waste
heat can often be used to fire the turbine,
enabling combined Cycle applications with
the turbine as second stage. This type of
application enhances total efficiency.
A CHP domestic heater with a GREEN
TURBINE TM can have an overall effiency of
95% or higher and will save 1 ton CO2
annually. That is because part of the
electricity we need in a household is self-
generated and not purchased from the grid.
Public power plants generate electricity with
an efficiency of approx. 45%. So 55% of the
energy is waste heat, dumped in the
environment. The fossil fuel, associated with
this 55% waste energy, is converted to CO2
and can be saved if we use CHP. If all 80
million households in the US use CHP units,
80 million tons CO2 annually will be saved.
This represents a huge decrease in CO2
output, not only in absolute terms but also
