CHATSWORTH, Calif., December 9, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Capstone Turbine Corporation (www.capstoneturbine.com) (Nasdaq:CPST), the world’s leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, today announced a strategic partnership with MultiChill Technologies, Inc. (“MultiChill”). The partnership will allow Capstone to deliver air-cooled absorption chillers and water making systems to end-users in conjunction with its flagship C30 and C65 microturbines.
MultiChill’s MultiGen system is available exclusively to Capstone customers for use in both new and existing projects and installations. The MultiGen system utilizes waste exhaust gas heat to provide cooling capabilities for combined cooling, heating and power (CCHP) applications, enabling Capstone’s C30 and C65 microturbines to achieve up to 90 percent efficiency. Furthermore, an integrated water making system is able to capture water from the atmosphere, refrigeration or air conditioning and supply it to the end-user.
“We have over 50 MultiGen systems in the field to date, and about 54,000 operating hours in both commercial and residential applications,” said Wallie Ivison, CEO and Director at MultiChill. “We anticipate that these systems will greatly enhance the salability of Capstone microturbines as a multiple output system, air cooled with flexibility on what the cooling can be used for.”
According to MultiChill’s website (www.multichilltech.com), it is being projected that by the year 2030, global demand for water will be 40 percent higher than it is today. The worldwide demand for fresh water has nearly tripled over the last century and severe water shortages are imminent. This growing demand opens up countless opportunities for Capstone and MultiChill to address a rapidly approaching water crisis with an innovative and cost-effective solution.
“MultiChill’s state-of-the-art water making and energy saving chiller technologies will provide our customers with an even cleaner and more efficient CCHP solution,” said Jim Crouse, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Capstone Turbine. “This is an excellent addition to our product lineup, especially for developing regions, as we can now offer a complete solution involving electricity, heating, cooling and water production,” added Crouse.
An air-cooled, dual-fired MultiChill 5T absorption chiller is currently being showcased and demonstrated at the 2015 Power-Gen International show (booth #908) in Las Vegas.

The good news is that because all air has some water in it, water is always near at hand when you are thirsty. The bad news is that you cannot simply drink the water trapped in the form of water vapor from the air. Leave it to scientists and inventors to come up with a viable solution for this age old problem. There is now an amazing answer to this quandary called an atmospheric water generator. These machines work by harvesting the moisture from the air and condensing it into common, everyday H2O. The science behind how these work is well-known to you if your house contains an air conditioner, a refrigerator, or even a de-humidifer.
Many people in developed countries take tap water for granted, often opting for tastier bottled options. However, for much of the world’s population, access to clean drinking water without a lot of effort being required is a genuine concern. Because many locations without access to clean water also have difficulties with getting electricity in, solar-powered solutions that require little maintenance work best.
Australia’s Epic Drought is Global Warning
Circle of Blue ReportsThe grievous consequences of drought and global warming are more visible and dangerous in Australia than in any other industrialized nation.
Wildfires last month killed 210 people in Victoria. The country’s greatest wetland, the Coorong near Adelaide, is drying up. And as it does, the sulfur in the exposed bottomlands mixes with oxygen in the air to form sulfuric acid mud that is killing aquatic life. Forests of Red Gum trees, hearty sentinels of Australia’s arid landscape, are dying. And crops across southeast Australia’s Murray-Darling Basin, one of the planet’s most productive food growing regions, are failing. Once prosperous rural cities are in decline, and suicides in farm families occur at a rate twice the national average.
Ms Bishop visited Wapemananda in Enga Province in the Papua New Guinea highlands today, one of the areas more severely affected by the El Nino-induced drought.
Ms Bishop said it was important to see the impact first-hand and assess the damage.
"I want to hear from those on ground, the NGOs, the local communities, about the impact and then assess what Australia would be able to do to help," she said.
Of the pledged funding, $5 million will be given to specific programs in Papua New Guinea, mainly for technical and logistical support.
