Seeking a Pilot site for a New Wastewater Heat Recovery Trial at a Commercial Kitchen

Members of the Dwr Uisce team are seeking to identify a new pilot site to install their new Wastewater heat recovery technology in the grease trap of an operating commercial kitchen. 
This is being conducted as part of a new Enterprise Ireland funded project called REHEATS. This new project is a follow on from the work carried out on wastewater heat recovery at commercial kitchens in the Dwr Uisce project including our demonstration pilot at Penrhyn Castle. 

REHEATS will pilot a combined grease trap – heat recovery system aiming to recycle 40-60% of kitchen wastewater heat while also improving fat oil and grease retention by 20%. 
This pilot plant opportunity offers one lucky commercial kitchen the potential to substantially reduce water heating bills and improve the carbon footprint of their business. 
If you are a hotel, restaurant, pub, café or other commercial food preparation outlet with an existing grease trap we are interested in speaking to you.

Please contact amcnabol@tcd.ie for further details.

The Dŵr Uisce project aims to improve the efficiency of water distribution by developing new low carbon energy-saving technology, including micro-hydropower turbines.

The technology will be trialled in both nations before being launched on the commercial market.

The project also aims to build the capacity for innovation in the water industry by investigating how new practices can meet the challenges faced in Wales and Ireland due to environmental and climate change.

The Ireland Wales 2014-2020 European Territorial Co-operation (ETC) programme is a maritime programme connecting organisations, businesses and communities on the West coast of Wales with the South-East coast of Ireland.

The Welsh Government manages the programme with partners, the Southern Regional Assembly (SRA) and the Department for Public Expenditure and Reform (DPER).

The programme is one of a family of ETC programmes which provide opportunities for regions in the EU to work together to address common economic, environmental and social challenges. 

The Ireland Wales programme focuses on seeking solutions to shared challenges on both sides of the Irish sea, to improve the economic and sustainable development priorities of Wales and Ireland.

The programme focuses on:

  • Cross border innovation
  • Adaptation of the Irish Sea and Coastal Communities to Climate Change
  • Cultural and Natural Resources and Heritage
