AERCO’s OriGen captures and turns low- to medium-temperature waste heat (170˚F to 600˚F) into clean, usable electrical power for a variety of applications including manufacturing (glass, wood, steel, brass, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, carpet, plastics), landfills, power generators, geothermal/oil, biomass/waste heat boilers, CHP, waste treatment plants and more.

Using ORC technology and an innovative twin-screw expander, the OriGen generates power using waste heat in a continuous, closed loop, so it’s fossil fuel-free and emission-free.

The OriGen’s power output ranges from 55kw to 5MW and can be combined to generate higher output plants. With payback within two to four years, you can’t afford not to incorporate one into your enterprise.

Features and Benefits

Clean, Renewable Power with No Carbon Footprint

  • Clean power generation from low- and medium-quality waste heat sources (170˚F to 600˚F) from a variety of applications including: Manufacturing/Heat Recovery, Biomass, Geothermal/Solar, CHP
  • Power output ranging from  55kW to 5MW
  • No fossil-fuels consumed
  • No toxic emissions produced (operates in a closed loop system)
  • Modular and scalable to accommodate larger plants

Significant Savings

  • Two to four year ROI
  • Very low operating and maintenance costs (system is self-powered and completely automated – no operator)
  • Substantial state and federal rebates available
  • Considerable utility cost savings and decreased rates due to the OriGen reducing peak demand

Operational Advantages

  • High reliability
  • 20-year design life with robust components (low mechanical stress = long life)
  • Uses the most efficient screw expander available in the marketplace instead of a turbine to provide greater flexibility with varying input loads, increased reliability and the widest operating range
  • Maintains good efficiency even at partial load
  • System efficiencies of 20%+ (with dual loop)
  • Highest turn-down available: 5% of nominal power
  • Operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year providing continual power (other renewable sources like the wind or sun are not always present)
  • Combined Heat Power (CHP) systems available
  • Turnkey package – the entire unit is pre-packaged and comes on a skid (except condenser)
  • Available with multiple condenser configurations that meet various site requirements
  • We customize to site conditions, and take care of installation and start-up to ensure performance is optimized
