Green technologies

SUSTEC is focusing on green technologies to reduce the environmental impact of existing technologies. SUSTEC has developed a process they call 'REGMAX' to overcome existing problems with mixed acid pickling and its regeneration. According to SUSTEC, the REGMAX process enables total recovery of all waste acids components: The process is applicable for all metal and acid concentrations and gives freedom of choosing the optimum pickling conditions for best pickling performance. The closed material loop minimizes the operational costs and environmental impact of pickling.

Harvesting heat from the city

Heat Harvest addresses the need for cooling in urban hot spots. The standard solution is to install air conditioning units and blow the hot air outside. This solution is not is suitable in densely populated city areas. Thus, other technical solutions are sought. Heat Harvest intends to cool pavements and building walls which are directly exposed to sunlight with water cooling lines which are directly enclosed in concrete, asphalt etc. which therefore have extremely low maintenance needs.

Air-to-air heat exchanger for cooling

Air-to-air heat exchanger for cooling

Air conditioning (AC) systems consume a lot of power and have a large carbon footprint. TORO Water Air Thermal Technologies Corp have developed an air-to-air heat exchanger for cooling which they claim saves 50–80 % energy compared to conventional AC systems. They offer energy-efficient, climate friendly AC alternatives using water as a refrigerant with separate sensible and latent cooling to maintain a comfortable level of temperature and humidity in multiple climate zones. ACs with this technology eliminate refrigerants that are ozone-depleting or have a high global warming potential, reducing CO2e emissions. They can be adapted for residential, commercial and industrial applications.
