The client Area Impianti is an Italian solution provider for flue gas treatment and heat recovery systems.The final end user is Sisecam, a Turkish company leader in glass production. EXERGY and Area Impianti provided 3 ORC based heat recovery systems to be installed on existing glass plants, 2 in Turley and one in Bulgaria, Targovishte.

The ORC technology provided by EXERGY applied to the float glass mill in Targovishte exploits the hot fumes generated to produce 5 MWe electricity.The ORC system works by the vaporizing of the organic fluid absorbibg the energy from the intermediate fluid and then passing to the turbine. Here it expands, causing the turbine to spin and creates electricity at the generator. Sisecam and Area Impianti's choice to install EXERGY's highly efficient EPS Radial Outflow Turbine revealed the best solution to harness the maximum amount of waste heat and increase the electrical efficiency of the installation.

Today the Sisecam Targovishte plant produces "greener" electricity, saving 20,000 tons of CO2 and 7,500 tons of oil equivalent per year. The high efficiency of the EXERGY product reduces the plant's energy consumption and carbon footprint contribution positively to the environment.
