For years, the industrial revolution has been viewed with a dual perspective – one that hails it as the movement that uplifted mankind in an unprecedented pace, and the other that believes it affects the environment by continuously emitting greenhouse gases and contributing to global warming.
Manufacturing processes release large amounts of heat. This heat energy is not fully exploited and put to use in an economically viable fashion.
While the heat emanated from these factories leads to pollution and smoke, it has the potential to play a more positive role.
Industries must contribute in reducing global warming by utilizing the heat generated in their factories in a useful manner.
The task is to understand how this wasted heat energy (low grade or high grade) can be turned into a form of renewable source of energy.
Your solution will be judged on the following parameters:
