INVESTIGATION OF THE OPERATION AND DESIGN OF A SMALL-SCALE HYBRID BIO-TRIGENERATION SYSTEM POWERED BY SUPERCRITICAL ORC
Time Period: From 2014 to 2015
Total Budget: €250 000
Financing: Program ARISTEIA II (Scientific Excellence II)
In the project a promising small-scale system will be developed, which is based on a small-scale biomass (pellets or olive kerns) fuelled boiler (capacity of 40 kWth), producing the required low- to very low temperature heat (around 80-120 oC, being a parameter to be optimized) and feeding a supercritical organic Rankine cycle (SORC) for combined cooling/chilling, heating and power production (tri-generation).
