Turboden sees big potential for ORC in US gas sector

Technology can cut emissions and raise energy efficiency at hundreds of US compressor stations

Italy-based Turboden sees big potential for the application of its organic Rankine cycle (ORC) waste-heat-to-power technology at gas compressor stations across North America, as the oil and gas sector comes under growing pressure to reduce scope one and two emissions and raise energy efficiency. “The potential is huge,” says Marco Vettori, business development manager at Turboden, which was established in Milan in 1980 and has been part of Japanese multinational Mitsubishi Heavy Industries since 2013. “We can count about 900 mainline compressor stations in the US and as many booster stations.
