PITAGORAS present in the ORC conference held in Milan in September 2017


Following the successful editions of 2011 (Delft), 2013 (Rotterdam) and 2014 (Brusels), the 4th edition of the International Seminar on Organic Rankine Cycle Power Systems took place this year in Milan, Italy, from 13th to 15th September 2017 (www.orc2017.com). Since the first edition in Delft, this event established itself as the reference technical conference on the topic. The ORC International Seminar provides a unique preview on the latest technologies and it is recognized as the most relevant podium to present research achievements to the international audience.

PITAGORAS project results were presented in this event by Tecnalia under the title “Performance evaluation of an ORC unit integrated to a waste heat recovery system in a steel mill”. The built pilot plat at ORI MARTIN steel mill was described and first results about the performance of this innovative plant in which the ORC has been integrated into a highly fluctuating heat source were shown to the audience. The presentation given in the conference is available here; for more information please see the full paper.
