PROJECT CONTEXT

Today heavy industries are losing 20-40% of the energy they consume through waste heat. Above 200°C, these losses represent each year more than 4,000 TWhth, €200bn and 2,500 Mt CO2 unlessly emitted. Waste heat recovery solutions have emerged: they offer massive potential in costs/energy savings as well as reduction of environmental impact. However, due to financial viability, existing solutions are mainly implemented for large industries & not compatible with all types of processes. Main challenge is to offer reliable, efficient & affordable heat recovery solution with reduced CAPEX & OPEX.

Our solution is based on 3 innovative concepts

MATERIALS

The elaboration of ceramics from industrial wastes, such as refractory ceramics for thermal storage. 

PROCESS

The implementation of those ceramics in a thermal energy storage unit Eco-Stock®. 

FINANCIAL

The financial scheme design facilitating & de-risking the customer purchase, based on ESCO investment.

This solution solves one of the main challenges of the industry—increasing energy efficiency while reducing CO2 emissions & saving money. Waste heat recovery is a global multisector market: 50,000+ industrial sites in various sectors are concerned & thousands of EcoStock units could be sold. The market size of waste heat recovery systems was €39.3bn in 2015, projected to reach €58.8bn by 2021. It is a high-volume market underexploited because of high CAPEX & low flexibility of existing solutions. To reach the commercialisation objective, the Phase 2 project budget is €1.9M for 24 months.

THE PROJECT

THE ECO-STOCK®
PROJECT

The main objective of this project is to demonstrate the Eco-Stock®, a waste heat recovery solution through thermal storage, in a real environment at an European heavy industry production site. For this purpose, the Eco-Stock will be adapted to industry tunnel kilns specifications.

Project progress

STEP 1

Basic then front-end engineering design are being performed to fit the demonstration site specifications. Then, in quarter 2, Eco-Stock manufacturing and digitalisation tools will be launched.

STEP 2

Coming Soon

AN INITIATIVE OF THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION

This project was funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 879608.
