The Anax Turboexpander provides clean, distributed electricity from the pressure and flow of natural gas, without combustion. The technology repurposes energy lost in the natural gas let-down process at network pressure reducing stations to drive an in-line generator which is installed in parallel with natural gas pressure reducing valves. Primary customers are natural gas power plants, large industrial users of natural gas, utilities, and midstream pipeline operators. In addition to the gas sector, large industrial end-users including oil refineries, cement plants, and chemical/fertilizer plants represent attractive markets for this technology.
