Title: Aqua Re energy funnel

Day by day we use hot water that disappears into the sewer system, yet even then it can be useful for us. Nowadays it is possible to recover the heat from cleansed waste water of the public sewage system to warm drinking water and to heat buildings. With the help of the Aqua Re energy funnel, heat can be recovered directly from the waste water of individual buildings, which has the advantage of a higher average waste water temperature than in the sewer system. Until now heat recovery was not possible here because solid wastes in the waste water often caused obstruction of the funnel. The Aqua Re energy funnel, however can transport solid wastes via its suction and eddy effects and thus can save a significant amount of energy for heat production.
