Written and edited by chemical engineering professionals for chemical engineering professionals, Chemical Engineering Progress Magazine documents MTPV’s approach to generating clean electric power from waste heat and our transition to commercial pilot readiness.
Colin Lacey, MTPV’s VP of Product Management and Marketing, blogs on the recent news that for the first time atmospheric carbon dioxide readings remained above 400 parts per million for a full year. As power generation is a significant contributor to global carbon dioxide emissions (30% in the US), MTPV’s clean electric power generation technology can help to address this critical issue.
Guest blogger Thomas Ortman, CEO of engineering company Concurrent Design, walks us through a model of US energy consumption and considers the importance of solid state design in the evolution of machines. He also considers the importance of solid state design in the evolution of all machines in order to yield greater efficiency, reliability, and environmental outcomes.
Waste heat is a huge element of the global energy equation. Brian Hubert explores the scale, sources and implications of the untapped energy readily available from waste heat.
MTPV founder Bob DiMatteo’s recollections on the origins of the company – the discovery and evolution of the micron-gap thermophotovoltaic effect.
