Boostherm heat recovery modules have been designed by Ecolactis company based in Burgundy, on the basis of the Dual Condense Technology (DCT) developed and patented in 2009.

The heat recovery module was originally developed for milk cooling tanks, and distributed under Ecolacteo brand (

On the observation of the system performances, the company decided in 2011 to apply its technology to commercial refrigeration and developed modules adapted to standard cooling units.

Ecolactis company can rely on 20 years of experience in the field of refrigeration and has established industrial, commercial partnerships as well as collaborations with research institutes, to offer durable and efficient energy saving solutions.

Research laboratory:

IRSTEA (formerly CEMAGREF :Research Institute for Agricultural Engineering and Environment) and its Research Unit “Refrigeration Process Engineering” in Antony (FR) took part in the development of the heat recovery module.

A laboratory test campaign was performed on a prototype system installed on a milk cooler.

The tests were designed to experimentally characterize the heat recovery system’s performances relative to a reference system without heat recovery. They also compared the performance of the DCT operating mode compared to former heat recovery systems and have highlighted the benefits of DCT.
