”We have created a financial incentive to save the environment.”
We spoke with Magged Khalidy, (franchise owner of 10 Burger King restaurants in the south of Sweden) to learn more about why he works with Enjay. ”We did trials where we tried to protect the air handling unit from grease and soot by installing air cleaning equipment, such as ozone and bacteria, but it hasn't worked for us at all. The issue is that the soot particles from our broilers, together with the grease, creates a thick substance that clogs everything in its path. But Lepido works very well. Enjay has taken it step by step and now someone has presented a solution that enables us to, finally recover all the energy that we previously had to throw away.”
The numbers from the first Burger King site that was equipped with a Lepido, gives a hint as to why Mr Khalidy is so positive:
For years, Stena Fastigheter’s real estate at Möllevångstorget had a problem with a sub-standard energy system. Jonas Larsson, Energy & Environmental Manager at Stena, had actively been looking for new ways to modernize and improve the energy savings in the building. With Lepido from Enjay, a new opportunity for energy recovery was revealed. The building houses a large food court incorporating a large exhaust air flow. With Leipdo all of a sudden, the inherent energy in this exhaust air could be recovered and subsequently put back into the building’s energy system. The savings totaled to a whopping 10% of the total annual energy bill.
