Second RBT® Wastewater Heat Recovery System for Textile Manufacturer

Second RBT® Wastewater Heat Recovery System for a Leading Textile Manufacturer.

OTTAWA, ONTARIO – December 12, 2022 – Thermal Energy International Inc. (“Thermal Energyor the “Company”) (TSX-V: TMG, OTCQB: TMGEF), a provider of innovative energy efficiency and carbon emission reduction solutions to major corporations around the world, has received a $330,000 order to deliver a second RBT® wastewater heat recovery system at a newbuild facility for a leading textile manufacturer. 


With this order, Thermal Energy will have delivered approximately $1.3 million in energy efficiency and carbon emission reduction solutions for this industry leader across multiple sites in Africa and South Asia.  

The relationship with this customer began just before the pandemic in late 2019 with GEM™ steam trap projects at two of their sites. As world travel reopened fully in 2022, a major equipment order was announced for this customer that was not only the first Sofame system designed, engineered, and sold independently by Thermal Energy since the acquisition of Sofame in July 2021, but expanded Thermal Energy’s offerings to include heat recovery from both air and water. This was later succeeded by a further order of GEM™ steam traps. 

This recent order valued at over $330,000 covers the engineering, manufacturing, installation and training of a second RBT® wastewater heat recovery system at a new build facility. The RBT® system captures heat from wastewater and uses it to heat incoming water which is expected to produce savings of approximately $349,000 per year, less than a one-year payback. 

Fashion-conscious consumers favour sustainable and socially conscious brands, forcing fashion retailers and textile manufacturers to focus their efforts on sustainability in order to retain competitive advantages in the fashion retail space. That was certainly true for this customer, who has placed sustainability at the forefront of its operations, so it was imperative they find the right supplier. 

“Our ongoing relationship with this customer has only been possible through our extensive suite of technologies. We have been able to support this customer at existing sites, with new equipment and now the integration of our technology during the build of their brand-new facility, rather than as a retrofit as would usually be the case. This is why we’re trusted by world-leading organizations to provide the right solutions with the best return on investment for all types of manufacturing processes. Consistently being able to deliver reliable energy savings and carbon reduction solutions for our customers is why they return to us time and time again” said William Crossland, Thermal Energy CEO. 

The project is expected to be completed and revenue earned within nine months.

Many factors, some of which are outside of the Company’s control, could cause events and results to differ materially from those stated. Fulfilment of orders, installation of products and activation of products could all be delayed for a number of reasons, some of which are outside of the Company’s control, which would result in anticipated revenues from such projects being delayed or in the most serious cases eliminated. Actions taken by the Company’s customers and factors inherent in the customer’s facilities but not anticipated by the Company can have a negative impact on the expected effectiveness and lifespan of the Company’s products and on the expected environmental effects and cost savings expected from the Company’s products. Any customer’s willingness to purchase additional products from the Company and whether orders in the Company’s backlog as described above will turn into revenue is dependent on many factors, some of which are outside of the Company’s control, including but not limited to the customer’s perceived needs and the continuing financial viability of the customer.
