Integrated mechanical vapor recompression (MVR) systems are the foundation of EII's innovation. Joined with combined heat and power (CHP), even greater versatility is achievable. EII's systems are tailored to industrial production processes such as dry-mill corn ethanol production. We recapture energy normally lost to cooling towers and put it back to work.

Proven Technology

EII systems integrate multiple processes, increasing energy capture and reducing system equipment costs. EII’s patented designs include:

  • combined heat and power,
  • innovative drying solutions, and
  • carbon dioxide processing.

Systems can include distillation, fractionation, dehydration, evaporation, cooking, liquefaction, drying, and fermentation processes.

Your system will operate as it currently does, but the steam generated by the boiler will be drastically reduced, as will the need for cooling tower capacity. 

Easy startup and shutdown combined with safe, reliable, easily balanced operations deliver valuable benefits without imposing significant challenges on operations and maintenance personnel.

Our Approach

We perform a Preliminary Design and Feasibility Review (PDFR) starting with an accurate, detailed mass energy balance (MEB) for your existing system. Then we develop a preliminary retrofit design, including major equipment specifications and a process design MEB. Budget-quality quotes and estimates of equipment and services costs will give an economic snapshot and a sound basis for installing a project.

Extraordinary Efficiency Through Patented Innovation

Other waste-heat recovery options fall far short of EII's technology; the energy recovery efficiencies available through our integrated MVR designs can be more than 25 times greater.

EII's proven innovations are backed by a comprehensive suite of U.S. and international patents, including:
