20 feet container (6*2,4*2,5=38m3), 30 tons. - Temperature from ambient to 1000°C. - Thermal loss from 5 to 8% per day. - Capacity from 1 to 3 MWh th per cycle. - Power from 200 to 1000 kW. - Cycle from 30 min to 8 hours. -
The main challenge is the reduction of capital expenses (capex) (€/kWh th installed) for a thermal energy storage technical solution for heat intensive industries.
A new concept for waste heat recovery for temperatures of between 200 and 1.000°C, with low capital and operating expenses, based on the implementation of ceramic materials inside a container named Eco-Stock. Well adapted to small and medium industries, it comprises of a 20 foot, 30 tonne container with a capacity from 1 to 3 MWh th per cycle. Cycles run from 30 min to 8 hours. Temperature from ambient to 1000°C. Thermal loss from just 5 to 8% per day.
• Constant outlet temperature.
• Efficiency > 92% per cycle.
• Low-cost energy (from 5€/MWh th).
