Objectives

The long-term general objective of the HEO project is to contribute to the main European environment policies, by addressing the issues of energy-efficiency.

The scope of the HEO project was to showcase a mix of environmental friendly technologies for manufacturing a new class of domestic electric ovens using up to 50% less energy in the production process, avoiding use of toxic substances and with an improved efficiency of about 30% during the use phase, if compared to state-of the art ovens.

The project has a concrete impact on the Home Appliance industry at a global level by demonstrating in particular the viability of new coatings for cavity walls.
