Managing Director, Kiko Water Systems Ltd.

Sometimes going to science class produces magic!  Utilizing proprietary nanotechnology that, by weakening hydrogen bonding, lowers the specific heat capacity and surface tension of HVAC water, Kiko dramatically improves HVAC system performance and reduces energy consumption of operations like the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver by between 10 and 30% per year. Without incurring any capital costs or project management requirements, the hotel reduced energy consumption 19% and saved 376 tonnes of CO2 using the technology.  Beyond that, the technology reduces load, improving system response time, and lowering maintenance costs while extending HVAC equipment lifespan. And Kiko makes maintenance calls in hybrid vehicles!
