The need

Industries are inefficient at using energy. More than 60% is wasted in the form of heat. Reducing the cost of the energy bill and lowering the environmental impact of energy are both essential.

The solution

An initial solution provided is sustainable and eco-friendly energy production using a by-product of the industrial process itself: heat. Converting waste into usable energy reduces energy bills and lessens the environmental impact made in industry, aligning it with the requirements of new environmental rules.
