  • Possibility of assistance
  • Subsidies available
  • Innovative solutions

To make this measure more effective and tailored to the specific context of your company, we recommend that you first perform an overall analysis of your energy situation.

Application of reflective coatings (baking ovens)

Reflective coatings can be applied on the plates as well as on the interior walls and burners of existing ovens or on new installations. The coatings are made of high-emissivity ceramic materials which increase the energy efficiency of the oven by absorbing heat and returning it to the product in the form of infrared radiation, thus reducing the heat input via the burner.

By installing this new technology, the company will save up to 20% on gas consumption and also reduce its carbon footprint by around 20%. This measure is easy to implement, has a quick return on investment, and does not require a production shutdown during installation.

Energy and environmental impact

Coatings are used to apply more of the original energy contained in the burnt fuel to the product, reducing the amount of fuel required.
In the long run, reflective coatings also help extend the life of ovens, as less surface area is exposed to direct heat.

Subsidy application

tate subsidy application

Please note: any application for government or non-government subsidies must comply with the “incentive effect”, subject to compliance with the subsidy conditions.
To ensure that the incentive effect of the aid is respected, no binding commitments may be made (acceptance of a quote; advance)

  • SME Packages – Sustainability
    • Flat-rate subsidy of €5.000 for small and medium-sized companies for projects to reduce their environmental impact, costing between €5.000 and €6.650 excluding VAT
    • For any questions:

N.B. While several state subsidies cannot be granted for the same project, they can be combined with assistance from energy suppliers.

Subsidies from electricity and natural gas suppliers

Since 2015, natural gas and electricity suppliers are required to make energy savings for consumers under the obligation scheme. Since then, energy suppliers have been offering support and advice, as well as subsidy programmes for consumers to implement energy efficiency measures. The amount of the premium is proportional to the annual energy saving (in MWh). The following suppliers offer this service for companies:

N.B.: Supplier subsidies can be combined with a state subsidy for the same project.
