EOLTECCO - A small power electric wind-farm fed from industrial smokes and airflows

Piedmont, Italy Slovenia

Project goal:

Exploit exiting air flows from emission points of production plants.

Project development:

  • Census and measurements of discharge, speed, and section of several emission points;
  • Change/adaptation of air pipelines for flow optimization;
  • Processing data necessary for the construction of the prototype and the final turbine;
  • Start-up of the turbine and monitoring of energy produced.

Results:

Continuous production of 1.13 Kw without interference and vibrations on Agrindustria production plants

Conclusions:

The exploitation of the exhaust air flows for the production of electrical energy is possible.

We did not reach a very high production because the experiment was made on low flow pipelines.

In order to understand if the project could have a commercial development, in a second step it should be tested on larger pipes to achieve higher production results.
