Aactor !GT©: Power from Lean Landfill Gas and Industrial Waste Heat or Off-Gases

M. Schmid, M. Voegeli & M.A. Sattler
For the power generation from the flaring of lean gases or hot gases, being emitted from land fill sites, bio-refineries and from heat of other industrial processes or concentrated solar radiation, a small micro turbine is being developed. Compared to existing micro-turbines, Aactor !GT can directly burn the gases at atmospheric pressure, and does not need any fuel pre-treatment, such as drying, de-sulfurisation, nor compression. After successful testing in the labs in 2009, a first...
