Research and innovation

The Poujoulat Group dedicates an increasing amount of effort to research and development, worked on by more than 30 people every day. Energy efficiency, sustainability, the development of renewable energy and eco-design are at the heart of our commitments.


At every stage of its life, a product must have the smallest possible impact on the environment.

It all begins at the design stage, with the selection of high quality and highly recyclable materials: Poujoulat’s insulated flues are over 97% recyclable. Then comes the choice of the manufacturing and finishing process that uses up as little energy as possible and generates as little waste as possible in an ISO 14001 production unit. Lastly, the transport, installation and ultimate dismantling and recycling must use up as little energy as possible: in these areas, Poujoulat flues are much more efficient than traditional flues.

Choosing a Poujoulat product means that you’re investing in the future, and contributing to the rational use of resources.

Energy-saving products

Metal flues offer better energy performance than mason-work flues. Cheminées Poujoulat offers a wide range of solutions that are increasingly efficient and environmentally friendly.

For example, the PGI system helps to reduce the consumption of wood pellet burners by between 12 and 15%.

Efficience is a new triple wall chimney flue designed to connect wood-burning devices (stove, fireplace or cooker). This system is totally safe, and allow air inlet and smoke exhaust in the same flue.

Last but not least, the 3CE P Multi +, Airflue Rénovation and Cascade systems mean that the most efficient boilers can be installed in places where they couldn’t previously be used.
