Climate Recovery provides a full assortment of responsibly constructed parts for the heating, ventilation and air conditioning market to save emissions and costs.

An effective heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system is crucial for a healthy and productive indoor climate in large buildings. Climate Recovery recognises this, and has designed a range of parts and fittings that achieve the result without the high environmental price tag associated with traditional products. The company’s duct system is produced almost entirely from recycled glass and sand, and pre-insulated to improve building acoustics and energy efficiency. The company also estimates that their products weigh up to half as much as standard sheet metal fittings, reducing installation times and costs for developers.

Climate Recovery estimates that by replacing metal and plastic fittings with their recycled alternative, their products can cut CO2 emissions by up to 80-90% in the production phase, which translates to an average saving of eight kilograms of CO2 per square metre over a 10-year period.

Why you should care

Air conditioning and refrigeration alone account for as much as 17% of global electricity demand, and as the global middle class expands further, the demand for HVAC systems is predicted to only increase. Climate Recovery’s alternative approach to production of parts and fittings is one way to reduce the impact from these systems.

How the Global Goals are addressed

Affordable and clean energy

Combining recycled products with pre-insulation helps Climate Recovery to improve energy efficiency within the building sector.

Responsible consumption and production

By using recycled materials like glass and sand, Climate Recovery shows how to combine economic growth with an environmentally friendly production.
