Over 30% of the energy consumed is lost in the form of heat, equivalent to 2450 Mt of CO2 per year worldwide. In the current context of gas price volatility, which makes industrial decision-making and management highly complex and risky, added to the urgency of climate change, industrial waste heat recovery is an absolute priority.

Eco-Tech Ceram is an industrial thermal engineering company
expert in energy efficiency and the recovery of waste heat
from heavy industry.

We analyze the needs of manufacturers to offer them turnkey solutions, both technically and financially. We enable them to
save money
from the very first year without having to invest, and significantly reduce their CO2 emissions.

The energy and climate challenge is immense, and we are determined to play a major role. That’s why we want to grow from an innovative SME to a leading ETI in the decarbonized energy market.

The Eco-Tech Ceram story

Antoine Meffre created Eco-Tech Ceram in 2014. Just 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 surrounded himself with a team of experts committed to the development of a low-carbon, sustainable and profitable industry: Eco-Tech Ceram was born.

Mission – vision – values

We provide technical and financial solutions for storing and optimizing waste heat. Since its creation in 2014, Eco-Tech Ceram has been determined to be a committed player in the energy transition. It offers manufacturers sustainable and profitable solutions for decarbonization. We devise and implement solutions that create jobs, generate profits and protect the environment.

Eco-Tech Ceram’s mission is to provide the most cost-effective and sustainable technical and financial solutions for the decarbonization of the industry.

Eco-Tech Ceram’s ambition is to become the leader in low-carbon heat.


  • Pragmatism: Eco-Tech Ceram always recommends the most relevant solutions for the industries.
  • Sustainability: Eco-Tech Ceram finds the most cost-effective and sustainable solutions to reduce industrial CO2 emissions.
  • Commitment: Aware of the climate and energy emergency, the Eco-Tech Ceram team does its utmost to simplify the work of manufacturers and accelerate their low-carbon transition.
