McDonalds nears the million mark

McDonald’s Restaurants Ltd have installed 24 award-winning Eureka (PTS) heat recovery systems1, with more on order.

They will very soon break the “magic million” kWh a year saving on hot water heating costs which equates to a reduction of CO2 of over 250 tonnes per year.

The Eureka PTS1 is a patented product designed to provide a cost effective, energy efficient, carbon emission reducing means of providing hot water for sanitary purposes and industrial “clean downs”.

Peter Schroeder, the award winning Environmental Consultant @ McDonald’s Restaurants Ltd said “Overall electricity consumption in December at a monitored site where a Eureka system was installed was one of our best, at over 20% below 2008 levels.  The Eureka PTS system will be a major part of this”.

Mark Purnell. Managing Director of Password Services says “We are fitting around two Eureka PTS systems a month in McDonald’s outlets with some very good results.

Stores are showing large reductions in electrical or gas consumption, depending on fuel used to heat water and should see a payback on the investment within 3 years and most within 4.

We are finding that more than often the fitting of the Eureka PTS system brings additional benefits over the financial ones.

The carbon footprint is reduced, McDonalds management and staff perception is enhanced and the refrigeration works more efficiently”.

Eureka Heat Recovery Systems Ltd is a Certified Carbon Trust Supplier and installations qualify for CT Interest Free Loans.
