Waste heat is one of the largest unexploited energy resources in the world. But until now, materials for upcycling waste heat to electrical energy have either been very expensive, used lead compounds, or could not operate above 200 °C.
Now, the Danish company TEGnology has the solution in terms of two economic, efficient and cleaner materials for the conversion process – allowing you to win some of the lost energy back. This means that some very compelling goals can be achieved such as better fuel economy, less CO2 emission and lower manufacturing costs.
This technology is highly relevant to the automotive industry. It has the potential to make multiple impacts, improving efficiency in everything from heavy goods vehicles to high-end sports cars.
