Thermal energy is abundantly present on earth because it represents the final form of all our terrestrial activities. With our innovation, capturing and reusing thermal energy becomes possible: this energy replaces large quantities of fuel to power industrial processes or to heat and cool rooms. Our company, STARKLAB, designed and developed the TERRAO heat exchanger, a system that achieves near perfect heat transfer between air and water. These performances make the recycling of thermal energy profitable today! TERRAO is used in two purposes, as a new technology for economical and sustainable air treatment (TERRAOTHERM) and for industrial flue cleaning and energy recovery (TERRAOSAVE). STARKLAB has been awarded several times for its innovation (BPI France, EDF Pulse, MMA Foundation ...). The company has been developing since 2012 via industrial partnerships in France and in Europe (DALKIA Groupe EDF, Poujoulat ...) Member of the French ICDD organization, recognized innovation as "citizen, at the service of sustainable development".

Efficient Solutions

Labelled Solutions from TERRAO (STARKLAB SAS)

The Solar Impulse Efficient Solution label seeks to bridge the gap between ecology and economy, bringing together protection of the environment and financial viability to show that these solutions are not expensive fixes to problems, but rather opportunities for clean economic growth.


Other products

To heat, cool and control the humidity of industrial, tertiary and agricultural premises, with recycled thermal energy. The exchanger captures the stale air resulting from human or animal activities: this air contains a large amount of thermal energy present both under heat and latent forms. This energy is extracted and used to bring fresh air at good temperature. Air treatment bills are reduced by 30% to 80%.

To capture and process the thermal energy and the gaseous pollution of industrial fumes. The exchanger captures the combustion fumes of boiler rooms, factories, incinerators ... to extract their thermal energy. The heat is then used to reduce fuel consumptions (gas, biomass, ...) . TERRAOSAVE retains up to 80% of thermal energy releases and catches NOX and fine particles very efficiently.
