Hyundai Heavy Industries and Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO) jointly developed a 2MW waste heat recovery system using critical carbon dioxide as a working fluid, which has recently obtained the Principle Approval (AIP) from Lloyd's Register of Shipping (LR).
Supercritical carbon dioxide (S-CO2) is a special state of carbon dioxide by controlling the compound in an environment above its critical pressure and temperature. In this state, supercritical carbon dioxide has both liquid and gas characteristics. Because supercritical carbon dioxide has a higher density than natural gas or steam in this state, the volume of supercritical carbon dioxide turbines with the same output is about one-third smaller than the volume of gas turbines or steam turbines, but energy efficiency will increase by 30%.
The system can utilize energy sources including coal-fired power plants, renewable energy, nuclear power, and waste heat from onshore engine power plants and large ship engines. The two partners plan to commercialize marine and land-based power generation waste heat recovery systems in 2019.
