Heat recovery system

Low temperature heating of premises by recycling waste heat from refrigeration systems

Identification

An innovation for the food industry that makes heat recovery profitable even for small and medium-sized cooling systems.

The heat recovery system can heat sanitary hot water or water for heating applications at no additional cost by recycling waste heat from refrigeration systems. It aims to reduce energy consumption in the food sector, including production, retail and restaurants. Indeed, the developers believe that a regular fast-food restaurant heating 1000 litres of water a day can reduce their CO2 emissions and energy use for this purpose by three-quarters. The system’s particular innovation is to recover all of the latent heat of condensation and desuperheating, yielding 5 to 7 times more water heater than conventional superheaters.

Label Date May 2018
From France
Maturity stage Medium and large scale commercialization
Looking For New clients like restaurant chains looking for efficient solutions to reduce their carbon footprint.
