Energy Technology Ltd. (EnTech) is a small innovative company founded in early 2011 at the Yaroslavl State Technical University. The company specializes in technology of high efficiency cogeneration of electricity, heat and cooling in systems with heat engines and boilers, technology of new and renewable energy sources.
EnTech technologies aim to:
Increase electrical (effective) efficiency of diesel engines by 1.3 - 1.5 times;
Increase the overall electrical efficiency of cogeneration plants to 55 - 65% due to the conversion of thermal energy of exhaust gases into electricity;
Produce electricity from boiler’s waste gas with electrical efficiency up to 20-30% or from other low-potential heat sources;
Improve the efficiency of existing thermal and nuclear power plants;
Produce cold if necessary.
All EnTech technologies are based on new thermodynamic cycles, which, compared with similar systems (e.g. Renkin and Kalina cycles) can increase the conversion level of low-potential thermal energy into electricity by nearly 1.5-2 times.
Development of equipment with similar performance far exceeding that imported counterparts will eliminate the import of such power equipment. EnTech equipment and power systems based on it could be produced in a number of engineering companies in Yaroslavl Region and in other regions of the Russian Federation.
In addition, the company experts developed a new way of organizing the processes in a diesel engine, comprising two-stage combustion and prolonged expansion of combustion products. The implementation of this method due to the reconstruction of existing engines can improve the cost efficiency and ecological safety by almost 1.5 times.
New technology is aimed at significant improving of the efficiency of energy production using both traditional fuels and renewable heat sources, and which is achieved in particular by means of:
improving the efficiency of convention (diesel) engines;
reduction in emissions (NOx, Co2) into the atmosphere;
use of boilers’ and heat engines’ thermal emissions for the additional production of electricity;
production of cold in summer;
use of any other sources of energy, such as peat, wood, solar power, biogas, etc. to produce electricity.
EnTech received a grant of the Fund for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises in Science and Technology (Bortnik Fund).
