Generate electricity from low-temperature heat

Climate-KIC Start-Up

Founding Year: 2013

Location: Switzerland

Enough energy to power every house in the U.S. is released by industries in the form of low-temperature heat. Today, this is unexploited.

OsmoBlue provides a sustainable and profitable opportunity for recycling low-temperature waste heat. OsmoBlue’s patented technology converts low-temperature heat, as low as 30°C, into electricity. The system is scalable and can produce hundreds of kW to tens of MW of electricity.

OsmoBlue products will help industries from different sectors (waste incinerators, chemical plants, datacenters, …) save money and reduce their carbon footprint, while improving their corporate image.
