We don’t leave innovations to chance. When developing new products and processes we look to the markets of the future. We are constantly seeking better solutions for our customers, focusing on careful use of raw materials and resources, making production more cost-effective, larger production units and increasing equipment availability. Here are some examples:
Redox flow: Storage for energy generated from renewables
In the future energy storage systems will be needed to keep the power grid balanced. These systems can store surplus energy, for example generated during periods of strong winds, and feed it back into the grid during calm periods. Redox flow batteries have an efficiency level of up to 80% and store electricity as chemical energy.
Alternative fuels for cement plants
Every year more than four billion tons of cement are produced worldwide. The energy-intensive process mostly uses fossil fuels such as coal, gas and oil – with correspondingly high consumption levels. We offer a range of technologies and systems that use alternative fuels.
Energy transition in chlorine production
Chlorine is one of the most important raw materials in the chemical industry. Around 70% of all products are manufactured using processes involving chlorine or its compounds. We have developed a process that reduces energy consumption in the manufacture of chlorine by up to 45%.
