  • Fact of the day: Last year, Degree-n provided us with Nano heating panels which we placed all throughout our Kara Tepe campus and a few in Moria. This helped us a lot during the cold winter! The heating systems are sustainable as the use of fossil fuels is reduced to a minimum, making Nano Infrared technology as its leading factor! . . #factfriday #movementontheground #factoftheday #winteriscoming
