Did you know that wastewater is the number 1 source of energy loss in modern buildings? That means that the heat you paid for, is literally being flushed down the drain! In this free webinar, you will learn how heat, money and environmental impact/carbon emissions can be saved using the warm wastewater that leaves your kitchen.

Content: The webinar is specially designed for owners of commercial kitchens such as restaurants, pubs or canteens and all interested stakeholders in the food and drink area. We will explain how the simple technology for recovering heat works, how you can reduce heating costs and how this makes your operations greener. Participants will be able to get an estimate for the cost reduction potential for their specific kitchen case using our heat recovery toolkit designed for this purpose.

Join us in reducing the climate impact of kitchens!

Audience: Owners of restaurants, pubs, canteens etc., touristic site managers, restaurant and catering managers, civil servants/officials, business (hospitality sector) owners.

Do participants need prior knowledge of the topic? No

What participants will learn during the webinar: Current climate impact of water heating in food and drink and of their kitchens’ water use and heating; Technology, financial and environmental aspects of heat recovery from kitchen drains; how to estimate the cost and environmental savings of their own kitchen using the toolkit > what is the potential in their case; potential suppliers of the technology; increased the awareness of stakeholders and policy representatives to improved heating efficiency.
