Bring the value of Genetron® working fluids to your ORC system

Use Genetron working fluids to recover waste heat from low temperature sources to generate electricity using ORC. For low temperatures (90-350 °C) use 245fa. At very low temperatures (50-90 °C), consider Genetron 134a, 507 or 410A.

Reduce CO2 Emissions Economically

 
Companies and organizations of every size, in every industry and on every continent are turning to ORC – Organic Rankine Cycle systems. Converting low temperature heat to energy is good business and good for the environment.

Genetron 245fa is a proven working fluid in Organic Rankine Cycle systems. Whether used in waste heat recovery for geothermal industries, power generation systems, industrial processes or transportation, ORC systems that use Honeywell’s working fluid increase the amount of clean energy and reduces CO2 emissions. ORC systems using Genetron 245fa can deliver 5-8% higher efficiency, improving your return on ORC investment.

Genetron 245fa thermodynamic properties reduce ORC size and costs, lowering your capital investments. If you’re facing high electric rates or growing demand charges, ORC with Genetron 245fa working fluid offers both a solution and an opportunity.

Also, its non-flammability can lead to substantial reduction in end user investment costs compared with flammable alternatives.

Realize economic benefits

 
While many organizations and industries have been focused on recovering high temperature heat, many are now seeking to recover waste heat from even lower temperature sources (60–350°C). ORC has been selected as a highly effective technology for recovering this heat and converting it to electrical power.

Working fluids for low temp

 
While Genetron 245fa is an excellent choice for working fluid, R-134a, R-507 and R-410A also perform well in this application.

Environmental Benefits

 
Thermal energy conversion produces electric power without additional CO2 emissions. ORC systems improve the working efficiency of distributed generation systems, to generate electricity from geothermal or solar natural heat sources, or to recover waste heat from industrial processes and convert that heat into usable power.

Increase your energy efficiency, decrease your carbon footprint

  • Generate additional electrical power directly from renewable heat sources (e.g. solar, geothermal)
  • Increase the amount of renewable energy and reduce CO2 emissions
  • Generate electrical power from waste heat to offset grid consumption

Today, ORC systems are being evaluated to improve the working efficiency of distributed generation systems, to generate electricity from geothermal or solar natural heat sources, or to recover waste heat from industrial processes and convert that heat into usable power.

Increased Safety

170x113_safety[1]
Genetron 245fa has low toxicity and is non-flammable, unlike a number of alternative working fluids, e.g. hydrocarbons.

Using Genetron 245fa maximizes the benefits of ORC systems by:

  • Driving ORC penetration through better economics than systems containing flammable fluids
  • Removing acceptance issue of ORC system because it uses a non-flammable working fluid
