Boosting Capacitive Blue-Energy and Desalination Devices with Waste Heat

Energy from seawater

Red power plant Blue Energy

The energy output of blue engines can be increased by a factor of order 2 if warm (waste-heated) fresh water is mixed with cold sea water.

Moreover, the underlying physics can also be used to optimize the reverse process of capacitive desalination of water.

Scientist of the University Utrecht (the Netherlands) have been publishing their report in the scientific journal ‘Physical Review Letters’. Heatening the water is possible by using the heat of data centers of cooling towers.
