FRANKE - sustainable energy supply

Published: Last updated:

"Make it wonderful"

A promise to the customer. Starting with the manufacture of the products and extending to the way in which partners, customers and employees are treated. Franke is just as wonderfully oriented to the corporate value of "taking responsibility" and is committed to sustainability and climate protection out of conviction. With the long-term investment in a modern wood-fired furnace, Franke ensures a clean energy supply and achieves another milestone in its energy management.

More efficiency through waste heat recovery

Waste heat recovery from the flue gas increases the heat efficiency of the wood-fired heating plant in Aarburg by 20 to 30 %. The flue gas is cleaned by means of a highly efficient wet electrostatic precipitator. In addition, flue gas dehumidification prevents visible emissions. This solution meets the highest standards
in terms of the sparing use of natural resources.
