Echogen® Technology

Waste heat recovery system

An Echogen® waste heat recovery system uses supercritical carbon dioxide (sCO2) as the working fluid to convert waste heat into power. Because of its properties, sCO2 can interact more directly with the heat source, eliminating the need for a secondary thermal loop, and further reducing the total installed cost of the system. This compact, flexible system can integrate with a wide variety of heat sources without disrupting existing plant operations.

Supercritical CO2 Pilot Project

TransCanada partners with Siemens to develop first-of-a-kind waste heat power generation facility in Alberta

The project will use supercritical CO2 to capture waste heat from a gas-fired turbine and use it to generate emissions-free electricity that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 44,000 tonnes per year – the equivalent of taking more than 9,000 vehicles off the road.
