Your challenges

Industrial customers

  • To assess the benefit of waste heat recovery operation from among a panel of choices: ORCs, heat pumps, thermo-refrigerating pumps, heat exchangers, absorption heat pumps, thermal storage, etc.
  • To optimise your processes in terms of energy by using the most suitable solution.

Equipment manufacturers

  • To characterise and validate recovery technologies or systems.
  • To develop a research programme and/or build test facilities to design your future innovations.

Our strengths

  • More than 10 years of experience in audits and diagnostics carried out on the premises of EDF and Dalkia industrial customers.
  • Training courses for a variety of profiles (maintenance operators, design engineers, etc.).
  • Internationally recognised scientific excellence (peer reviewed publications, awards, higher education training).

Our offer

For industrial customers:

  • Audits on the potential for waste heat recovery on your facilities. Training by our experts.
  • Modelling of heat production installations and optimisation of their design and management.
  • Assistance in project design, construction and project management for the implementation of identified optimal solutions.
