  • 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.

Installation of efficient dust collection hoods

  • The use of articulated arms to extract dust and fumes is a system that optimises dust collection.
  • Dedicated profiled nozzles must be placed as close as possible to the points generating dust or fumes.
  • It is necessary to set up a heat recovery system on the extracted air flows with air reinjection to balance the pressures.

By installing these technologies, which have been available on the market for over 5 years, companies can save up to 20% on electricity costs and reduce their carbon footprint. This measure is quite simple to implement and would entail a medium-to-long term return on investment. However, this measure requires a production shutdown during installation.

Energy and environmental impact

By using articulated arms or profiled nozzles, it is possible to reduce the quantity of aspirated air and therefore save electricity on the suction fan, as well as on the heating or cooling of the renewal air.

Installing a heat recovery system with pressure balancing saves a little energy on the suction fan(s), as it prevents negative pressure in the room. As a result, the efficiency of the extraction system can be maintained, and above all it reduces the need to heat the renewal air.

Subsidy application

State 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.
