Energy Efficiency

EEffG - The federal energy-efficiency-law

The energy-efficiency-law (EEffG) was created in 2014 with an aim to improve the energy efficiency of industrial enterprises by 20%. We can provide the support to help achieve these goals. By improving energy efficiency your company can also save a lot of money. Additionally, the EEffG develops a market for efficiency-enhancement-activities.
With our range of technologies in each of our research areas, we are able to support you.   

PAC – The research network

Process Analytical Technologies (e.g. Infrared Spectroscopic Methods) are able to monitor chemical processes inline and control them precisely, which enables perfect optimization.
We have conducted intensive research in this field since 2010 and can act as your contact point to the entire research network PAC - www.k-pac.at.

Process optimization for batch-processes or continuous-processes

Through exact knowledge of the current conditions in a batch-reactor or in a continuous process, the chemical processes can be regulated precisely. Therefore it is often possible to reduce process temperature and time reserves. Energy saving significantly raises profits, and leads to a quick amortization of such process optimization. Our Spectroscopy experts can support you!

Visualization of multilayer structures

As illustrated in this example of an organic photovoltaic cell, multilayer structures can be measured and analysed with OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography). Organic PV-cells consist of organic semiconducting materials, transparent electrodes, and a protective coating. As a result of this, a homogeneous layer structure without defects, inclusions etc. is relevant for the quality, functionality, and long-lasting performance of the product.

Foundry process – casting ingot

In foundry processes it is possible to save a lot of time, money, and energy if you are able to detect already developing cracks during the on-going casting process.
Our patented Laser Ultrasonics technology can achieve this! Solidification cracks / hot cracks, surface cracks, and core cracks can reliably be detected in cast ingot (round and flat ingot).

Energy, resources, and raw material efficiency

Using process-integrated techniques from the NDT (Non-Destructive Testing) technologies portfolio means that errors can be identified at an early stage – saving time, energy, and cost.
With direct control of your processes, you can always operate them optimally without compromise. This results in a reduction of energy input, materials consumption, and process time. Through 100% quality control, only certified zero-defect products are delivered to the customers.
Dare to go to the limits within product and process design – through integrated process analytics and 100% quality control you save time and money, and it’s hassle-free. We can support you in these matters!
