Motivated by forthcoming CO2 regulations for commercial vehicles, much work has focused in the recent past on exploring and advancing systems for recovering waste heat. The Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) is particularly promising in this regard. Current prototypes and simulation reveal potential cuts in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of 3-5%. These high reductions make the ORC attractive for systems that could soon be introduced into volume production.
