The JTEC harvests thermal energy to create electricity
When used in reverse – it uses electrical energy for highly efficient air conditioning and refrigeration applications.
The device uses electrochemical reactions at different temperatures and pressures to create a potential difference, which can be harnessed to drive electrical current. It has the potential to generate electricity more efficiently than any device in use today.
The JTEC operates in a closed, sealed environment; it does not need fuel added. It is scalable; it can be made small enough to harness body heat and power a wearable device, or large enough to capture waste heat from an industrial factory and convert it to usable electricity.
It has distinct advantages over other devices
No Moving Parts
The JTEC has no moving parts, making it easier and less expensive to maintain than traditional Stirling engines.
Uses Electrochemical Reactions
It uses electrochemical reactions to move and pressurize hydrogen. Other electrochemical converters, such as alkali- metal thermo electrochemical converters, employ similar concepts but use liquid sodium or potassium metal, which are highly corrosive.
Operates at Wide Temperature Ranges
It operates in greater temperature ranges than traditional liquid-based electrochemical converters.
