An advanced Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) system by utilizing Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) in order to enhance the heat and mass transfer efficiently that can be operated at low temperature heat source. Using such high-efficient sorbents (MOFs) in the system is showing the potential for compact ORC system design, unprecedented refrigerant loading, and the suitability to refrigerants that are commonly used in standard ORC as well as newly developed refrigerants.
Hybrixcel is committed to finding the most suitable thermodynamics conversion cycle match to low temperature sources for standard and custom applications. Our groundbreaking technology take low heat from various heat sources and turn it into clean electricity.
ORGANIC RANKINE CYCLE
Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) is a key technology used for generating electricity from decentralized heat sources. The principle was named after the Scottish physicist and engineer William Rankine (1820-1872), who is also considered one of the inventors of thermodynamics.
METAL ORGANIC FRAMEWORKS
Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) are new micro-porous materials with exceptionally high porosity, uniform pore size, well-defined molecular adsorption sites and large surface area. MOFs have two main components: the organic linkers considered as organic secondary building unit, act as struts that bridge metal centers known as inorganic primary building units and act as joints in the resulting MOF architecture. The two main components are connected to each other by coordination bonds, together with other intermolecular interactions, to form a network with defined topology. MOFs have been originally developed and investigated for gaseous fuel storage such as hydrogen and methane.
