SATO Technologies’ Study Reveals Vast Potential for Reusing Heat from Bitcoin Mining to Reduce Energy Costs
A recent study conducted by SATO Technologies Corp. in collaboration with the University of Québec at Trois-Rivières has revealed promising findings regarding the potential for reusing heat generated from digital asset machines, specifically those used for Bitcoin mining. The study suggests that the heat generated by these machines can be harnessed and used to significantly reduce energy costs. The preliminary findings indicate that the recoverable heat energy potential ranges from 68% to 88% for the MicroBT WhatsMiner model and from 66% to 86.33% for the Bitmain Antminer model, depending on the cooling system employed and the surrounding conditions.
The study highlights the vast potential of reusing the heat waste from digital asset mining as a sustainable solution for reducing energy costs and mitigating environmental impact. By operating these machines, not only can Bitcoin be obtained but also valuable heat that can be repurposed for other projects. This not only validates the viability of heat recovery technologies but also paves the way for their adoption in the digital asset sector.
Yvan Guibault, a strategic advisor for SATO and one of the first shareholders, expressed satisfaction with the successful completion of this first step towards waste heat re-use, which was first initiated in 2018. With these new findings, SATO will be able to transition to the next level of application for large-scale industrial use of waste heat re-use.
The potential for heat recovery technologies to be adopted in the digital asset sector is significant. These advancements have the potential to greatly reduce the industry’s carbon footprint while meeting industrial heat demands. The study highlights the contributions of Alejandro Parrado-Duque, a PhD student at the University of Québec at Trois-Rivières, who was recognized for his active participation during the International Scientific Conference on Power and Electrical Engineering of Riga Technical University.
