A topic of high priority
March 2013 – Environmental and energy efficiency technologies are a future-oriented sector which is becoming more and more of a priority for many companies all over the world. Dürr accommodates this trend with the first-time presence of its business unit Clean Technology Systems at the Hannover Trade Fair from April, 8 to 12, 2013. The Group presents its product range in the IndustrialGreen Tec area of the trade fair, where sustainable product technologies are on show.
“We see an increase in the demand for energy-efficient technologies, not least because the payback periods are getting shorter now with the higher energy costs. Furthermore, low-energy processes improve the sustainability of the production – an image factor of increasing importance in many fields of the industry“, says Joachim Kaufmann, Head of the Dürr business unit Clean Technology Systems. “The recognition that we need to decouple economic growth from energy consumption is becoming more and more accepted all over the world. This goal can only be achieved by realizing manufacturing processes that consume less energy“, Kaufmann explains.
With their extensive product portfolio, Dürr is ready to support customers in the energy optimization of their production facilities. For power generation from waste heat and heat, the Group offers the Organic Rankine Cycle technology as well as the flexible Compact Power System (micro gas turbine) that generates electricity, heat or cold by gas combustion. In collaboration with their business partners thermea. Energiesysteme, HeatMatrix and LaTherm, Dürr furthermore implements innovative solutions for storage, conversion and transmission of heat energy.
Dürr will present all these technologies in Hannover (Germany), with a focus on ORC technology. The public utilities company of the town of Groß-Gerau (Germany) recently commissioned such a unit which generates electricity from the waste heat of a cogeneration unit. For the Groß-Gerau public utilities company, the investment is paying off: Now, electricity can be supplied to 360 additional households.
