The domestic environmental technology sector offers a number of appropriate technologies, which aim at the greatest possible avoidance of air pollutants. These technologies include filter systems, catalytic aftertreatment systems, post-combustion systems, emission reduction methods as well as particle filters for the purification of the exhaust air generated in various industrial processes (e.g. production of goods, energy supply).
Austria offers comprehensive technical know-how for the best possible system solutions for exhaust gas purification.
air pollution and contribute to the preservation of air purity but also help to recover waste heat and reduce their energy consumption in industrial processes.
Best air quality - significant reduction in emissions in recent years
Austria offers comprehensive technical know-how for the best possible system solutions for exhaust gas purification. The catalytic post-treatment plants from Austria, which are in operation around the world, include Recuperative Catalytic Oxidation (CO), Regenerative Catalytic Oxidation (RCO), Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR). For certain cases, the Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) is suitable.
Exhaust gas purification plants from Austria not only reduce industrial air pollution and contribute to the preservation of air purity, but also help to recover waste heat and reduce their energy consumption in industrial processes. In addition to supplying complete after-treatment systems for emission reduction, the production of catalysts is itself a significant production area in Austria.
The world's cleanest cement plant in the province of Salzburg shows impressive technologies. Thanks to the newly installed hose filter technology, the stated target value of dust emissions will be reduced by 50 percent. This bring not only an advantage for the environment with significantly lower dust emissions, but also a reduction in energy consumption, which has a significant advantage in terms of costs.
