Hartlepool plant to generate power from waste heat



Hartlepool plant to generate power from waste heat
Technology capable of producing electricity from heat generated by process industries is being trialled in Hartlepool.

Huntsman Pigments, which develops titanium dioxide pigment to be used in paints at its Greatham site, has partnered with DRD Power for the project.

From March 2011, the plant will be trialling a system that uses the waste water to heat liquid with a lower boiling temperature, which in turn powers a generator.

It is thought that the project could save between 600 and 750 tonnes of carbon emissions per year and will be capable of generating 200kW of electricity.

DRD directors Clive Whitbourn and Roger Mallinson were responsible for developing the system.

Mr Whitbourn told the Northern Echo: "We were working in the chemical industry for a number of years and it was just one of those things we discussed and worked on.

"I don't believe people have a eureka moment – these things emerge."

Funding for the £1 million project was partially received through One North East and the Carbon Trust.

Huntsman Pigments Division has facilities in seven countries worldwide and produces 560,000 tonnes of titanium dioxide pigment each year.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800229691-ADNFCR
