HTMS produces heat transfer additives which, when added to existing water and glycol heating and cooling systems, yield dramatic improvements in energy use or system capacity.

The Series A financing will be used to fund HTMS’ growing list of commercial validation projects, further develop its proprietary technology and range of products, scale its manufacturing capability and invest in sales and distribution networks in the US, Middle East, Europe and Asia. Having previously advised on the €2M seed financing round in 2020, HMT led by James Thomas and Richard Collis provided lead advisory services to HTMS on this transaction which included identifying suitable strategic investment partners, negotiating detailed investment terms and project managing the deal to a successful completion
