Zuccato Energia

We transform energy.

From heat, clean energy

We transform heat into clean electric power

Zuccato Energia’s (ORC) systems efficiently transform the heat generated by industrial processes in a source of clean electric power you can immediately use in your firm

Reduce Costs

Waste heat recovery allows you to obtain electric power at a very low cost.

Increase Efficiency

By reusing waste heat you increase your plant’s efficiency and your firm’s competitivity

Decrease Your Environmental Footprint

ORC Systems produce electricity cleanly, without CO2 emissions


Thermal recovery

The ORC modules from Zuccato Energia make it possible to recover heat with high efficiency that would otherwise be lost and convert it into electricity even at low operating temperatures.

Thermal Engines

Diesel engines are able to transform less than 33% of the energy contained in the fuel into mechanical energy. The remaining energy is lost in the form of heat. The ORC modules of Zuccato Energia allow you to exploit the waste heat transforming it into clean electricity. This waste heat can be recovered at various points:

  • Exhaust fumes;
  • Cooling jackets;
  • Oil cooling circuit (for large engines and marine applications).

Industrial processes

Zuccato Energia’s ORC modules can transform low-temperature heat into electric power, enabling the recovery and exploitation of unused – or even unwanted – waste heat. It becomes possible to recover energy from most industrial processes involving heat, such as:

• Furnaces and kilns;

• Boilers and steam generators;

• Ovens, driers, smokehouses, frying vats and incinerators.

Primary production of energy from renewable sources

Zuccato Energia's ORC modules enable the generation of environmentally friendly electricity using renewable heat sources.


Zuccato Energia’s ORC modules may be used in conjunction with biomass-fueled boilers (burning e.g. wood chips, pruning residues, woodworking residues) to produce electric power.
