Abstract:
Almost all energy creation processes, both renewable and non-renewable, have waste heat as a byproduct in some form. The U.S. Energy Information Agency states that the creation of waste heat constitutes about 60% of the total possible energy production created for end use. The application of the Atmospheric Vortex Engine to cooling tower processes, a current large contributor of waste heat, can utilize the convective potential of the atmosphere to more effectively disperse waste heat from a cooling tower into the atmosphere. This engine can reduce and or eliminate all parasitic energy loads of a power production facility, produce additional energy, and improve the overall efficiency of energy generation.
