Reducing VOC emissions
Dürr offers customized solutions to comply with strict regulations
Strict VOC regulations require plant operators worldwide to minimize their VOC emissions. But what causes high pollutant emissions in paint shops? The primary source of VOC emissions is paint mist generated during the painting process. Additionally, the transition between colors generates paint residue, and VOC-laden cleaning agents are used throughout the process.
Dürr offers plant operators customized solutions specifically tailored to their painting process. Innovative application technologies already reduce paint booth VOC emissions by producing minimal overspray from the outset, i.e., more paint lands on the body, and less paint mist escapes into the booth air. This minimizes paint waste and solvent use.
Cleaning and rinsing application equipment also produces rinsing agents and paint residue, which can be collected with the appropriate equipment.
Dürr's EcoBell Cleaner D2 and EcoBell PurgeBox (for 2K coatings) capture all VOC-laden media generated during short rinsing, color change rinsing or paint pressing. This reduces the booth’s VOC emissions by up to 60%.
