Oak Brook, IL – March 15, 2023 – The Heat is Power Association (HiP) is pleased to welcome developer and manufacturer of energy recovery systems for hydrogen and natural gas applications, Sapphire Technologies, to its membership.
Sapphire Technologies develops turboexpanders that harness the power of gas expansion to produce reliable and clean electricity. Sapphire Technologies’ FreeSpin® In-line Turboexpander (FIT) is designed to convert energy wasted in pressure reduction processes into electric power. By recovering this wasted pressure energy, Sapphire Technologies is helping companies improve efficiencies and productivity while reducing carbon emissions and generating cashflow.
HiP Chairman John Prunkl said,
“We are thrilled to work alongside Sapphire Technologies as they continue to make strides in energy recovery technology. Sapphire Technologies is working with partners throughout the world to ensure its proprietary technology is improving the way wasted energy is captured during the pressure reduction process. With the rapidly changing American energy landscape requiring higher energy efficiencies, the market is recognizing the potential of Sapphire Technologies’ turboexpander technology.”
“As a member of HiP, we have a golden opportunity to continue educating US industry and policymakers about our turboexpander technology,” said Freddie Sarhan, CEO at Sapphire Technologies. “This partnership will allow us to inform key decision makers on how turboexpanders can reduce carbon emissions. As the economy continues to grow, the industry has a responsibility to look at new alternatives to reduce carbon emissions making the current natural gas infrastructure more environmentally friendly. HiP allows us to tap into its network and 10+ years of efforts — helping us all to achieve a more sustainable future.”
Sapphire Technologies is driving global decarbonization through developing and manufacturing energy recovery systems that harness the power of gas expansion to produce reliable and clean electricity. Sapphire Technologies’ systems are designed to convert energy wasted in pressure reduction processes into electric power without interrupting operations. By recovering this wasted pressure energy, Sapphire Technologies helps customers reduce carbon emissions, meet ESG goals, offset electrical costs and achieve substantial financial returns.
