WINNER: BEST NEW PRODUCT AWARD 2013
RECOH-VERT HEAT RECOVERY SYSTEM
EVO BUILDING PRODUCTS
The Recoh-vert Heat Recovery System is a copper counter-flow heat exchanger that uses hot waste water to heat fresh cold mains water. The hot waste water passes through an inner pipe, while fresh mains water passes through an outer pipe, heating up as it goes.
Jurors were impressed that the product “responds to thermal heat loss within the water delivery mechanism of the pipe itself.” They said that it “jumped out immediately” as a simple, sustainable solution that is appropriate for both residential and commercial uses. “It is highly innovative for its sustainable aspects, saving 60% energy and 1,000 kg of CO2.”
