What is Efenco doing?

Efenco is developing disruptive Cold-Plasma-Assisted Carbon Neutral Combustion (CPA PAC for short) technology for industrial heat production to achieve a whole new level of efficiency & GHG emissions reduction in the burning of methane, hydrogen & their mixtures.

Introducing HERC (High Energy Ray Ceramic), innovation in fundamental physics & materials technology. HERC is a robust, reliable, & self-powered solution that initiates PAC in the combustion and exhaust processes and boosts burning efficiency by 18%, and lowers GHG emissions by 20%. HERC is designed to be fitted in existing industrial boiler systems to gain a higher return on assets and lower OPEX. We address the gains and pains of >1MW high-temperature process heat (HTPH) companies on their path to CO2 neutrality.

Recently, Efenco announced €4.5 million in funding to further our mission of pioneering low-carbon technologies
