Bottoming cycle

  A waste-heat recovery boiler recaptures the unused energy and uses it to produce steam to drive a steam turbine generator to produce electricity.
  U.S. Dept. of Energy, Energy Information Administration's Energy Glossary
  ***
  A means to increase the thermal efficiency of a steam electric generating system by converting some waste heat from the condenser into electricity rather than discharging all of it into the environment.
