Qpinch

Qpinch introduces breakthrough technology to reduce industrial emissions and energy use. The Qpinch Heat Transformer uses chemistry inspired by nature's energy system (the ATP-ADP cycle). With this patented and novel approach, it overcomes the hurdles faced by conventional technologies to upgrade waste heat into process heat. The large scale and broad applicability position Qpinch as a strategic solution to reduce emissions cheaper and faster in petrochemicals, food & beverages, paper & pulp, and other industries. Qpinch BV is a spin-off from Ghent University with headquarters in the Port of Antwerp.
