More than 50% of the energy is consumed in the form of heat and more than a third of the energy consumed is lost in the form of heat (ie the equivalent of 2450 Mt of CO2 per year). Manufacturers want to reduce their energy consumption to improve their competitiveness and reduce their carbon footprint.

In order to support industrial companies in their low-carbon transition, Eco-Tech Ceram, a three-time winner of the Concours Mondial de l’Innovation, is made up of a team of 40 employees (doctors, engineers and technicians) specialized in industrial heat, energy storage, materials, automation and financing engineering. We understand the needs of customers in order to be able to offer technical and financial turnkey solutions. Manufacturers can now make savings from the first year without having to invest.

Taking into account the size of the market, Eco-Tech Ceram has surrounded itself with public ( BPI, Occitanie Region, ADEME ) and private ( RGREEN, QAIR, JOHES ) shareholders capable of supporting Eco-Tech Ceram over the long term. term in France and abroad.

The energy and climate challenge is immense and Eco-Tech Ceram is determined to play a major role. It is for this reason that it intends to move from an innovative SME to an ETI leader in the carbon-free energy market.

The history of ETC

Antoine Meffre created Eco-Tech Ceram in 2014. Only a few months after its creation, the young start-up won the Concours Mondial de l’Innovation, financed by BPi France.

His story had begun a few years earlier in the PROMES-CNRS laboratory. Antoine Meffre was then a doctoral student and was carrying out his thesis on the storage of high-temperature energy, using recycled ceramics from industrial waste. This gives him the opportunity to work with industrialists such as ArcelorMittal, EDF or Europlasma.

Aware of the consequences of climate change and the urgency to act, he decided to put his energy and scientific expertise at the service of the fight against climate disruption. Antoine Meffre then had an original idea: to design a high-temperature thermal storage unit to recover waste energy from industries, industrial waste heat. The concept of Eco-Stock ® had germinated.

He decided to surround himself with a motivated and committed team that will participate in the development of a decarbonized, sustainable and profitable industry. Eco-Tech Ceram was born.
