The EcoStock


An eco-designed mobile thermal storage solution for industrial waste heat recovery and renewable storage in recycled ceramics.

To reduce the use of fossil energies, thermal storage solutions are used directly at the customers' manufacturing plants.

A major amount of the energy consumed in the industry is wasted as lost heat, which represents millions of tons of CO2 uselessly produced. Eco-Tech Ceram’s solution is to recover the heat contained in industrial fumes and store it in refractory ceramics made from industrial co-products. This accumulated heat can either be used as a heating source – hot air at constant temperature level is provided (up to 1000°C) – or be converted into electricity.


Key features for a positive impact on quality of life

  • One Ecostock unit can prevent up to 8000t of CO2 on its lifetime
  • For each unit, 1 MWh of CO2 free high temperature heat can be delivered
  • Storage materials are made from mineral industrial co-products

Profitability

  • Modular and mobile solution that allows low capital expenditure
  • Produces heat at a price up to 80% lower than heat obtained with natural gas
