AERCO’s DirectGen is able to capture and turn high-pressure steam into clean, usable electrical power ranging from 55kW to 5MW output. DirectGen can be used in a variety of applications including Industrial processes (e.g., manufacturing, bottling, molding), commercial buildings with large central steam plants including universities and hospitals, as well as high-pressure natural gas lines. It can be used in any process that uses a pressure reducing valve.
Instead of burning fossil fuels, the DirectGen generates power using high-pressure steam in a continuous, closed loop, so it’s fossil fuel-free and emission-free. Saving energy by not burning additional fossil fuels translates directly into saving money – ROI is typically within one to four years.
