Inspired from Nature Developed by Eco FutureLab Fze - NrgPipe
Eco FutureLab Fze has developed innovative Energy harvesting pipe especially suited for fluid or Gas heat sources such as hot water and steam. The tubular shape enables direct and efficient heat transfer without additional heat exchangers, yielding high density of generated power. Eco Futurelab Fze’s NrgPipe with simple, compact, and efficient features is an ideal solution for capturing unused or waste heat from :-
NrgPipe technology has attracted much attention as a renewable energy solution. Since other Technologies generators are complicated in structure and restricted in planar shape, they are difficult to scale-up and implement. Eco FutureLab Fze’s NrgPipe solve these problems by using unconventional phenomena called transverse effect, which takes place in tilted multilayer made of thermally sensitive Phase shifting conductive materials . This effect makes it possible to control heat flow and electric current independently , and realizes quite simple structure without complicated electric junctions and planar substrates.
The performance of power generation is strongly dependent on many parameters such as size of the tube and amount of heat source. The design and development of The NrgPipe technology is optimized in order to maximize the output electric power in accordance with surrounding conditions.
NrgPipe from Eco FutureLab Fze opens up the way to generate electricity by harnessing thermal energy in conventional hot water piping. The 10 cm-long NrgPipe generates 1.3W of electricity from hot running water of 90°C. Compact power stations, which are capable of generating 10 kW with only 1m^3, will eventually be realized, fueled by hot springs as well as factory waste heat distributed around the world.
On this development and others , Eco FutureLab fze has 39 pending Patent applications.
