Progress is well under away at Avery Dennision Performance Tapes site in Turnhout, Belgium!

ENERGYNESTs Thermal Battery™ technology is playing a pivotal role in Europe’s biggest Concentrated Solar Technology (CST) platform alongside our partners bv AZTEQ and Campina Energie cv. Integrated into the CST platform, our technology will be storing excess renewable solar energy and will release it during the night to supply carbon-free steam for faultless production.

Once the impressive construction work is complete on the CST platform, it will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 9% on Avery Dennison’s current consumption as they move forward with sustainable practices for their operations.

Nest by nest, change is happening!
