Technology to convert heat waste into electricity

Scientists have claimed a breakthrough in converting waste heat to electricity by developing a new thermoelectric material which they say is best in the world.
The Northwestern University finding offers hope to tap the waste energy as nearly two-thirds of it is lost as heat.
The material could signify a paradigm shift, as inefficiency of current thermoelectric materials has limited their commercial use.
With a very environmentally stable material that is expected to convert 15 to 20 per cent of waste heat to useful electricity, thermoelectrics could see more widespread adoption by industry.
