First Installation of a working prototype HERU
The very first HERU has been installed and is working in a domestic environment, the material being used to fuel the HERU is no longer waste, the material that had once before been discarded ready for a waste collection is now no longer a waste but instead contributing to the homes energy requirements. The HERU is delivering around 3kWh of heat energy for the home for every 1kWh of electricity it consumes. What is incredible is that it operates with a standard 13Amp electric socket, works at 300 degrees centigrade and is the footprint of a typical wheelie bin. It is envisaged the HERU will stand in the same location as your current waste wheelie bin and plumbed in to your existing hot water system. The HERU has been validated for a very wide range of home produced materials (NOT WASTE) that include, card, paper, plastic, nappies, food and even batteries just in case they found themselves in the HERU by mistake.
