KGRA Converts "Waste Heat" into CO<sub>2</sub>-Free Electricity

KGRA Energy, a two-year-old venture-funded company employs organic Rankin cycle (ORC) technology to harness waste heat from industrial operations and convert it into usable, emission-free electricity that reduces energy costs and lowers carbon footprints.

KGRA is currently installing the world's first ORC project in the pulp, paper & wood industry, at a large North Carolina lumber mill operated by Weyerhaeuser Company. The 800-kilowatt (kW) Weyerhaeuser installation will generate usable carbon dioxide (CO₂)-free electricity, NC facility, which will displace more than 9 million pounds of CO₂ each year and create 20 American jobs in the development, construction and installation process.
