Instead of trying to filter out particles of soot and grease, Lepido thrives in harsh restaurant environments, recovering energy while allowing particles that would normally clog up the system, to simply pass through.
Over 40% of the world's energy consumption today is used for buildings, which accounts for nearly one-third of the total CO2 emission so any improvement in this segment will certainly have a big impact. With Lepido, your average restaurant can reduce its yearly CO2 footprint by around 40 metric tons. This means that by implementing Enjay’s technology in the approximately 15 million restaurants around the world, we can reduce global CO2 emission with as much as one percent by 2050.
For Enjay, this is just the beginning. In 2019, we signed with Burger King Scandinavia, making Lepido standard equipment in all their new upcoming and future restaurants in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. We also have Lepidos installed in numerous other restaurants and hotels in these countries, and we are in the process of expanding further internationally.
In 2018, we received our first international acknowledgment and it was just the first of many:
WWF - Climate solver 2018
Global Cleantech – 2018 Top 100 Company
Solar Impulse – Efficient Solution 2020
SET Award 2020 – Finalist
Perpetuum 2020 by DENEFF – Winner
Start-up 4 Climate 2020 – Winner
Postal Code Lotteries Green Challenge 2020 – Finalist
As mentioned above, we are only just getting started. Commercial kitchens are only the first area that the Lepido technology has been implemented in, but it can be adapted and used in various other fields like laundries, in the marine industry, in malls and in bakeries.
