Optimisation of solid biofuel operated Stirling CHP units by means of nano technological coatings (NANOSTIR)
Start date: Jan 15, 2008, End date: Jan 14, 2010 PROJECT  FINISHED 

NANOSTIR represents a completely new and highly innovative, alternative polygeneration energy system. It does combine a solid biofuel boiler, a small power range Stirling engine (generating approx. 1 kW electrical power and approx. 10 kW thermal energy) and an absorption cooling machine (generating approx. 15 - 20 kW cooling energy) to a concise and highly potential energy provision system.NANOSTIR significantly reduces former problems of Stirling engines with soiling and slagging of the primary heat exchanger and the resulting performance inefficiencies by using solid biofuels by means of the applied nanotechnological coating material and does so represent a further, energy saving step in the development and application of this technology. NANOSTIR provides a new and highly promising solution attempt for an optimisation of small scale CHP Stirling units and does not only consolidate regional economical cycles and added value in the related regions by boosting forestry, agriculture, transport- and trade.
