The main objective of this project is to demonstrate the Eco-Stock®, a waste heat recovery solution by thermal storage, in a real environment on a European heavy industry production site. To this end, the Eco-Stock will be adapted to the specifications of the industry’s tunnel furnaces.
This solution solves one of the industry’s biggest challenges – increasing energy efficiency while reducing CO2 emissions and saving money.
This Eco-Stock® is installed in real conditions on an industrial site, at Villeroy & Boch in Valence d’Agen, the international ceramics giant. The Valence d’Agen plant has embarked on a genuine environmental and energy transformation of its production facilities.

“We produce ceramic products, a material that lasts over time thanks to a traditional know-how internationally recognized for its manufacturing quality. We had to quickly start our energy transition in order to make this noble material compatible with the ecological challenges to come. Manufacturing in France, in a sustainable way, in synergy with local actors, skills, and resources will make Villeroy & Boch a model of Social and Environmental Responsibility! “
– Laurent Santarelli, Manager of the Valence d’Agen plant, Villeroy & Boch France
