The challenge associated with existing non-Cotes dehumidification systems lies in their heavy reliance solely on electricity and gas, coupled with inefficient air-drying methods operating at very high temperatures. This combination creates an unstable and hazardous operating environment.
Cotes developed the Exergic Technology®, an innovative solution maximising energy savings by using three rotors and sustainable energy sources.
With the patented Cotes Exergic Technology®, you can utilise a combination of sustainable energy sources to achieve considerable energy cost savings and large carbon footprint reductions. All you need is hot water at 80-90°C heated by a sustainable energy source:
- Waste heat (from elsewhere in the li-ion battery production)
- Biomass or Biogas (if available and sustainable)
- Solar thermal panels
- CO₂ Heat Pump used for both heating and cooling. Pay once and use twice.
- Electricity (From sustainable energy sources, i.e., wind power, hydropower, solar power and/or nuclear power)
- Gas **
Because the energy to heat the water can come from a combination of sustainable energy sources and can be changed in the future if the price of energy changes, it makes the Cotes Exergic Technology more sustainable and more future-proof. This flexibility is not possible if the dehumidifier is built for gas regeneration specifically.
**Cotes does not recommend or consider gas as a source of sustainable energy due to the environmental footprint. We recommend utilising energy for the hot water from sustainable or “green” energy sources instead. However, if gas is a requirement, the water can come from a central gas boiler.
