CO2OLHEAT aims at strengthening EU industrial leadership in both energy intensive industries (making them more competitive) and turbomachinery sectors, bridging the current gap on sCO2 turbomachinery that EU has with US and Japan-Korea.
The project will analyse sCO2 Waste-Heat-to-power (WH2P) potential from a technical, economic and environmental point of view, developing innovative models for the design of the cycle and of the turbomachinery as well as investigating CO2OLHEAT cycle benefits in the cement, glass, aluminum, power generation sectors via techno-economic and Life Cycle based replication feasibility studies, involving relevant EU industrial players
RINA is participating in CO2OLHEAT project as co-leading partner, and it is responsible for the Replication and Impact analysis of the technology.
Other activities are related to:
CO2OLHEAT aims to demonstrate at MW scale energy and economic performance of a compact and efficient sCO2 cycle for WH2P application in all type of medium/high temperature industrial processes (T>350°C) plants also thanks to the integration of other enabling BoP components and their management via a grid-oriented controller, which will enable CO2OLHEAT WH2P plants to offer grid flexibility services as well.
CO2OLHEAT consider sCO2 as key technology for WH2P applications reaching higher thermal efficiency than steam/ORC cycles, particularly at temperatures already relevant for steam cycles but not more convenient/fully exploitable for ORC (T>400°C) and for medium scale size plants (5-20 MW).
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 101022831
