Dürr Introduces Innovations in Energy Efficiency Technology to a Broad Audience

Bietigheim-Bissingen, March 12, 2013 – On February 26th, 2013, Dürr’s Clean Technology Systems (CTS) business unit introduced globally unmatched innovative solutions for the use of waste heat at a fully booked Planner Day at Dürr’s campus in Bietigheim. Approximately 100 engineers from across Southern Germany were presented with information about energy-efficient technologies―technologies the industry can use to contribute to the move to alternative energy sources. The turnout was so great that the event will be repeated in May.

“We do not want to generate renewable energies, but rather use those we have more efficiently,” explained CTS Managing Director, Joachim Kaufman. The following figures illustrate this market’s potential. Our industry accounts for 30% of the overall final energy consumption in Germany, or 700 TWh/year. 400 TWh/year of it is used to generate process heat which 30% to 40% is lost as waste heat. At least 30 TWh/year of this can be saved in a commerciallyprofitable way. This amount of energy is equivalent to the output of three nuclear power stations.

Dürr offers a wide-ranging portfolio of technologies that complement one another and improve energy efficiency in completely different industrial sectors.
The Dürr subsidiary, thermea Energiesysteme GmbH, offers a solution for compressed air dehumidification that is unmatched worldwide. The thermeco2 refrigerant dryers are the first systems to use the environmentally friendly refrigerant CO2 to dry compressed air for applications in the automotive industry. Compared to conventional systems, which work with refrigerants such as the controversial R134a and the soon-to-be banned R22, the climate-neutral CO2 refrigerant dryer from thermea offers important advantages, such as greater security of investments and sustainability in production through a natural refrigerant with low safety requirements.

Jochen Fink, Managing Director of Dürr Cyplan, presented a variety of products Clean Technology Systems offers. He emphasized that by using these innovative and forward thinking technologies, companies will be able to increase their competitiveness. He explained that Dürr offers “solutions with export potential.”

After the presentations, Planner Day participants had the opportunity to marvel at the technologies presented at the Dürr Test Center. “In my opinion, the event did a great job of presenting the key issues in energy efficiency and sustainability, in particular in industrial and environmental technology,” explained Peter Naßwetter of IBN - Ingenieurbüro Naßwetter.

Planner Day will be held again on May 14th. To register, send an e-mail to sales.environmental@durr.com.
