University of Iowa Waste Heat Chilled Water Generation

08-10-2017 11:56

Summary

This presentation will discuss the addition of new renewable energy based chilled water capacity at the Oakdale Chilled Water Plant on the University of Iowa's Research Campus. In the interest of developing a trigeneration facility, new hot water absorption chillers were installed at the plant and designed to utilize waste heat from existing natural gas-fired engine generators (capable of also firing landfill gas) or hot water generated from biomass steam. We cover the initial economic analysis through design and construction, including the impact to the University of Iowa's 2020 Vision for Sustainability.
