Heatcatcher CEO Darren Bryant said: “We are delighted to become a member of the BCC having supported several of its members with waste heat recovery designs and project implementation. We look forward again this year to sponsoring the BCC event Net Zero Business Advocate Award and bringing our experience to assisting others on their Net Zero journeys”

Representing almost every UK ceramic business, the BCC’s collective voice continues to safeguard the interests of UK ceramic manufacturing.”
