The long-term general objective of the HEO project is to contribute to the main European environment policies, by addressing the issues of energy-efficiency, over-dependence from fossil fuels and GHG emissions, chemicals and waste.
The HEO project will showcase a mix of breakthrough technologies for manufacturing a new class of domestic electric ovens, which allows an improved efficiency of ≈ 30% relative at household level, and up to 50% in energy savings in the production process, compared to state-of the art ovens.
The project will have a concrete impact on the Home Appliance industry at a global level by demonstrating in particular the viability of new coatings for cavity walls.
