S2. E11: Could This Heating Solution Reduce Carbon Emissions By 80%?

Episode Release Date Tuesday 13th June 2023

According to the World Economic Forum

Heating and cooling are essential to modern life. This includes comfort control for homes and buildings, and temperature control in industrial processes. It also includes the cold chain that ensures safe delivery of food, medicine and vaccines around the world…

Heating and cooling technology for buildings create around 15% of global carbon emissions, while food loss adds 10%, according to research.

New technologies that are helping to decarbonize these areas are increasingly being used for industry and transportation.

This podcast episode investigates a new heating technology with guest Tom McGee of X-Heat

Tom also wrote a short explainer article, which you can begin reading here:

As the urgency to combat climate change intensifies, the race towards achieving net-zero emissions by 2050 has become a paramount goal for the United Kingdom.

While many industries grapple with finding affordable and sustainable alternatives, the commercial heating sector has found a promising solution: catalytic combustion.

This innovative approach not only offers significant advantages over traditional heating methods but also provides a cost-effective pathway towards achieving net-zero targets within the industry.

Catalytic combustion, as a highly efficient heating technology, harnesses the power of chemical reactions to produce heat with minimal carbon emissions.

We carried out these installations to do beta tests. We put gas meters on every single appliance, so that we could measure and collect the data to prove that what they had before versus what they’ve got now.

There was a significant reduction in energy consumption from the installations we’ve done so far.

The return on investment average is around about 24 months and as far as I know, there’s not another heating system, which can be installed which can achieve that.
