Heat Waste for Power Generation: Alternatives to Generate Clean and High-Efficient Energy

The world wastes a lot of heat every day. Take for instance the amount lost in traffic. As you press the gas pedal of your car, the tailpipe emits waste gases at a temperature of between 300 and 500̊C. Scenarios like this one make experts think about heat generation from waste heat. Globally, the he[..]
