Heat-to-Power Machine Wins Popular Science Award

The editors of Popular Science have named the ElectraTherm Green Machine one of the top technology innovations of 2008, according to a Nov. 12 press release from the company.

As a winner of a Best of What's New Award in the Green Tech category, the machine stands out as the first commercially viable generator to make electricity from low temperature, residual industrial heat that has, until now, gone to waste.

"After four years of research and development, we are thrilled to bring the ElectraTherm Green Machine to market, and pleased to see this ground-breaking technology recognized by Popular Science Magazine," says Richard Langson, chief executive officer of ElectraTherm. "Our technology takes heat and pressure, and turns it into usable power. We believe this clean, green, economic energy solution will have far-reaching impact on industries worldwide."

Using patented heat and pressure recovery technology, ElectraTherm employs its proprietary twin-screw expander to generate fuel-free, emissions-free. Texas distributor Gulf Coast Green Energy installed the first commercial 50-kW units this summer at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. The machine has exceeded its 50-kW output rating by 20 percent, garnering positive reviews from SMU's Geothermal Laboratory.
