Cutting carbon emissions with innovative heat recovery system

We worked with the Accor Group on a trial of our Zypho brand’s drain water heat recovery technology in two of its hotels. The Zypho system captures the outgoing hot wastewater from a shower and uses it to heat the incoming cold water, recycling up to 75% of the energy needed to produce hot water in the process. That means lower energy bills, a cut in carbon emissions, and a response to the French government’s directive for the hospitality sector to cut energy use and adopt eco-friendly practices.
