The Takasago Europe GmbH strives to continuously improve their energy-related performance based on the requirements of the international standard EN ISO 50001. This serves to realize the defined energy-related targets of our company and thus to contribute to the protection of people, nature and climate. In 2014, the site in Zülpich was certified for the first time.

Reduction of emissions

A system for the regenerative thermal oxidation of odour-laden exhaust air was installed and put into operation. Due to the high degree of heat recovery from the ceramic heat exchanger material, this form of waste air purification is a particularly efficient exhaust air treatment method. The system is heated with natural gas and comes equipped with 3 heat storage reactors. These reactors serve for exhaust air preheating, combustion and clean air cooling. In case of low pollutant concentrations the automatic connection of the burner ensures the required temperature in the combustion chamber. In case of high pollutant concentrations the incineration plant operates autothermally. This means that the temperature in the combustion chamber can also be maintained without using the natural gas burner.
