Last week, Green Week in Review’s Bart King interviewed William C. Olson, Senior Vice President and co-founder of ElectraTherm–a company that has developed modular technology (the ElectraTherm Green Machine) to harness waste heat from a variety of industry sectors.
The United States produces enough industrial waste-heat (think smokestacks) to replace roughly 30 percent of the electricity produced by burning fossil fuels. According to the United States Department of Energy, there is more waste heat available in the United States than all other sources of renewable energy combined. Yet most of it goes to waste.
ElectraTherm has fielded interest from all over the world in the company’s fuel-free, emissions-free systems. The ElectraTherm Green Machine can produce power from a wide array of heat sources including industrial waste heat, engines, biomass, and solar thermal installationsShare
