General

Our Stirling engines are driven by the heat generated from an external combustion. The technology is thus a combined heat and power (CHP) technology. We offer great flexibility with regards to customer requirements.

The use of a Stirling CHP

It makes sense to use a Stirling CHP wherever gasses with problematic contents are generated, e.g. sewage plants or landfill sites.

Because the gasses are burned externally the toxic contents will not get into the engine. The Stirling engine can be used regardless of the fuel used. 

The electric energy is either used for own requirements or fed into the supply network of electricity providers. The heat generated by the technical process can be used for own requirements, in public facilities (schools, hospitals, swimming pools) or for commercial use (growing plants in greenhouses). There are certain grants, depending on the country, which can be applied for to help with setting up the plant.

In addition to investment funds the Erneuerbaren Energiegesetz (EEG) (renewable energy law) or the Kraft-Wärme-Kopplungsgesetz (KWK) (Act on combined heat and power generation) offer remuneration for the electricity generated.
