COMMERCIALIZING THE FIRST ENERGY RECYCLER FOR RESTAURANT VENTILATION

Objective

Enjay’s product, Lepido, is the first energy recycler capable of extracting the energy from the hostile and greasy exhaust air in restaurants and converting it into useable energy to heat the actual property. Lepido is based on three revolutionary Swedish patents and offers an average energy savings of 150,000 kWh – the equivalent of saving 15 tons of carbon dioxide emissions every year.

Today, there is no effective heat recovery unit for commercial kitchens and the energy is simply released straight into the air without recycling. Unlike recycling heat from ventilation air in offices or apartment buildings, one of the greatest problems in restaurant ventilation is the aggressive environment (grease, pollution, moisture, soot, etc.) which destroys heat recovery equipment like cross-flow, rotating or battery units over time.

Enjay begins a major transformation in the industry by changing the way of thinking about energy management in restaurant ventilation. With Lepido, Enjay opens up for energy recovery in a segment of the ventilation industry where it hasn’t been possible until now. By doing so, Enjay creates a financial incentive to save the environment.
