The client Energia Vulture Alto Bradano, had two requirements when they partnered with EXERGY. Their first requirement was to dispose of waste from grape and olive production and waste from the local wood processing industry using environmentally friendly methods. Their second requirement was to operate their business in a more economically efficient way and develop a secondary revenue stream by selling electricity back to the gird. 

EXERGY provided a packaged ORC unit which when combined with a thermal oil boiler would efficiently convert the agricultural waste into electricity. The ORC unit has an automated control system, ensuring minimal staff monitoring, thus making the operation simple to manage for the client. 

The unit integrated well into the surrounding environment and met with the appropriate emission requirements, The unit was air cooled and due to the inclusion of the EXERGY Radial Outflow Turbine it operated at an extremely high efficiency level (up to 24%) compared with similar installations on the market.
