Chilling Food by Turning Waste Heat into Sound Waves

Novel refrigerator turns waste heat into sound waves to cool down stuff ZME Science, December 13, 2016 Japanese researchers have demonstrated an innovative refrigerator that employs a thermoacoustic engine to cool things down to a minimum temperature of -107.4 C. This sort of heat engines based on sound waves have been researched since the 1990s for

New Process To Turn Waste Heat Into Electricity

Researchers report new thermoelectric material with high power factors Phys, November 14, 2016 Researchers reported this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that they have demonstrated a step forward in converting waste heat – from industrial smokestacks, power generating plants or even automobile tailpipes – into electricity. The work, using a thermoelectric compound composed of

Reducing Environmental Impact of Industrial Production with Waste Heat

Waste heat likely to boost energy efficient production Phys.org, September 30, 2015. Image credit: TBIT Waste heat and solar process systems have potential to reduce the environmental impact of industrial production. Yet, their adoption is hampered by cost efficiency concerns as legislation still allows attractive subsidies for energy from other renewables. A specialist of energy efficient
