Product and Development Focus for Infinity Turbine

ORC Waste Heat Turbine and ORC System Build Plans: All turbine plans are $10,000 each. This allows you to build a system and then consider licensing for production after you have completed and tested a unit.

Redox Flow Battery Technology: With the advent of the new USA tax credits for producing and selling batteries ($35/kW) we are focussing on a simple flow battery using shipping containers as the modular electrolyte storage units with tax credits up to $210,000 per system.

Our main focus is on the salt battery. This battery can be used for both thermal and electrical storage applications.

We call it the Cogeneration Battery or Cogen Battery.

One project is converting salt (brine) based water conditioners to simultaneously produce power.

In addition, there are many opportunities to extract Lithium from brine (salt lakes, groundwater, and producer water).

Salt water or brine are huge sources for lithium. Most of the worlds lithium is acquired from a brine source. It's even in seawater in a low concentration. Brine is also a byproduct of huge powerplants, which can now use that as an electrolyte and a huge flow battery (which allows storage at the source).

Introducing Salgenx the Saltwater Battery.

We welcome any business and equipment inquiries, as well as licensing our turbines for manufacturing.

Infinity Turbine Products

Infinity Turbine develops and builds systems for making power from waste heat including industrial, biomass, geothermal, solar, crypto, redox batteries, and more. We are also working on innovative strategies for storing, making, and deploying energy by use of flow batteries.

All ORC turbine and ORC system plans are $10,000 USD. This includes a license to build one set (try before you buy a production license). This allows you to economically build one turbine or system and try before you invest in a unlimited build license.

Unlimited build license packages for IT50 and larger are available.

Cogeneration Salt Flow Battery

Considered a hybrid between a standard flow battery and a thermal storage device, the cogen salt flow battery provides simultaneous heat or cold liquid storage as well as electrical energy storage.

The Cogen Salt Flow Battery has a variety of applications which include:

-storage of thermal energy (heating or cooling) from unused thermal resources

-storage of electrical power for backup power and grid strength

-utility grid power rate mining opportunities to store off-peak low cost power for later use during demand (on-peak) hours

-storage of thermal energy for Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) power production while simultaneously storing the electrical output from the turbine generator

-using off-peak low cost power to make heating and cooling for later use

-reducing peak demand utility rates by peak energy shaving

What is Brine

What is brine?

In general, brine is any solution with an extremely high concentration of salts, such as sodium chloride, which can occur either naturally (as with seawater, deep-water ocean pools, salt lakes, producer water from oil and gas drilling) or as a byproduct of industry. These byproducts, or brine waste streams, are typically highly concentrated salt solutions that, in some cases, contain more than twice the amount of concentrated salts than natural brine solutions.

Brine waste streams can also be highly concentrated with total dissolved solids (TDS), such as waste streams in many chemical manufacturing processes, and they can be some of the most challenging to treat or discharge because their composition and purification requirements are dynamic and complex.

Some examples of brine waste created as a byproduct of industry include:

-cooling tower and boiler effluent

-reverse osmosis (RO) and ion exchange waste/reject streams

-produced water from extracting oil and natural gas

chlor-alkali and chemical plant waste

-acid rock and mine drainage

-food preservation and manufacturing waste streams

-desalination waste from potable water creation

irrigation runoff

Our novel solution is treating this solution considered and expensive headache, into a battery technology system.

Elon Musk and Tesla even think that recovery of lithium from brine is worth patenting. However, they are not the first to do so. (1962 Lithium from Brine Patent)

Battery Technology: With the advent of the new USA tax credits for producing and selling batteries ($35/kW) we are focussing on a simple flow battery using shipping containers as the modular electrolyte storage units with tax credits up to $140,000 per system. We are focussing on the salt battery. This battery can be used for both thermal and electrical storage applications. We call it the Cogeneration Battery or Cogen Battery.

We are also looking into converting salt based water conditioners to simultaneously produce power.

Waste Heat to Energy

List of selected waste heat to energy publications.

Waste Heat to Energy is a renewable energy field which deploys technology to utilize industrial, commercial, and home based heat which would otherwise be unused, to make power. Since much of the quality of this heat is low, efficiency to capture and convert to power is also low. This makes the most sense (payback) where utility (grid-based) power rates are at or above $.15 per kwh.

News

We've catagorized news into a separate section. Please link below.

The popular thermal storage TES Sand Battery is a good option for homes and large thermal storage.

Trending: With huge energy price increases in the UK (trending up as much as $.75 per kWh) thermal and electricity self generation are becoming more relevant, with emphasis on payback. Heat pump development is now towards smaller systems which can be used for electric vehicle battery range extending, as well as electric aviation. This is why we are focussed on our CO2 closed loop turbine heat pump and now provide a Gas Leverage Turbine Experimenters Kit .

Heat Pumps: We believe that heat pumps are the future for heating, cooling, sand battery charging, as well as propulsion systems, which allow us to leverage environmental thermal sinks. Our Gas Leverage Turbine is an example of combining many technologies to work as one.
