  Waste Energy Recovery from Industrial Processes; Emergence of a Key Component of the Nation's Energy and Economic Future Webinar 04.21.2012 12:00am

The application of waste energy recycling in industrial processes can profitably reduce fossil fuel and carbon emissions directly, and indirectly by facilitating wind and solar. As part of a distributed generation strategy, waste energy recycling promotes greater energy efficiency, reduces line losses by up to 50 % and enables more transmission and distribution grid capacity for renewable power generation. These processes exist today and are making a difference in the U.S. and around the world.

A typical U.S. power plant is only about 33% efficient, using three units of fuel to produce one unit of electricity. The remainder is deemed waste energy and is primarily vented into the atmosphere. However, studies indicate that up to 40% of total U.S. electricity needs could come from waste energy recycling and combined heat and power.

The concept of a widespread use of waste energy recycling has achieved a significant momentum. The federal government and an increasing number of states have identified waste energy recycling as a key component of the nation's energy and economic future. Policymakers at the state and federal level look to waste energy recycling as a means to help address critical issues, such as energy efficiency, fuel independence and better utilization of renewable energy resources.

The panel will:

All the panelists are deeply involved in the practical and policy aspects of waste energy recycling, policy, combined heat and power development and integration challenges in a manner complementary to the development of renewables.

Please join us for an interesting and provocative discussion by a panel of industry experts who will provide their insights into waste energy recovery from Industrial Processes. After a short presentation by each of our panelists, the floor will be open for participants to ask questions.
