Installed Ecopure® TAR – Recuperative thermal oxidation

Test Center Environmental Technology

Ecopure® stands for efficient air purification systems with low energy consumption. With ORC technology from Dürr, the waste heat can be used to generate electricity. Microturbines convert gaseous and liquid fuels and VOC into exhaust air and electricity.

Exhaust cleaning

The recuperative thermal exhaust air purification Ecopure® TAR is part of the combustion process, which converts essentially organic pollutants into water and carbon dioxide, as a proven, safe and universally applicable method. The Ecopure® TAR is used particularly in the exhaust air cleaning of drying processes are used: Starting with virtually all coating processes for the automobile body from small parts to coating systems for floors or wallpaper. Other technologies represented at the test center are the Ecopure® VAR (combustion system for waste gases and waste liquids) and the Ecopure® LPX (low pressure catalyst).

Ecopure® ORC – Generating electricity from waste heat

Through Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) technology, waste heat can be used to generate electricity. The test center uses a 70 kW ORC plant waste heat from a thermal exhaust air purification plant of the type Ecopure® TAR to generate electricity. The facility has undergone an extensive testing and optimization program, efficiency and variability using this innovative technology has been increased significantly. Our test center in Bietigheim-Bissingen offers the best conditions for the development and demonstration of ORC technology.
