Keeping the oil in the engine

Each time the fuel-air mixture is ignited in petroland diesel engines a small portion of the gases flows from the combustion chamber into the crankcase as leakage current. For the engines to function optimally, it is necessary to dissipate these so-called blow-by gases and separate the engine oil droplets contained within them. This reduces the pollutant emissions and oil consumption of the engines. For modern, higher-compression engines, researchers have developed new and effective separation systems that undercut the more stringent emission limits for oil mist.  more...

New building services concept tested in hotels

The conversion of a residential building to a hotel in the centre of Munich focussed on comfort and energy efficiency. The building envelope almost achieves the passive house standard following the renovation. The system technology is adopting a different approach: decentralised heat pumps produce domestic hot water and space heating heat on a room-by-room basis. A twin-pipe chilled water network balances out the heat and cooling requirements between the individual rooms.  more...

Solar process heat

Around three-quarters of the final energy consumption in the industrial sector in Germany is caused by process and space heating. Solar heat can be used in many different ways in the low-temperature operations in particular, as well as in the commercial, trade and services sectors. International studies confirm the global potential for this technology.  more...

Electromobility - What drives us now and in the future

Highly efficient, low-noise and zero-emission: the electric powertrain offers dynamic mobility, can integrate renewable energies and makes the transport sector less dependent on crude oil as an energy source. However, which technology will dominate electric vehicles of the future: batteries or fuel cells? An either-or decision is not necessary.  more...

Schools plug into the sun

Photovoltaic systems in schools help save energy and enhance classroom teaching. They shape a school's image and indicate that energy supply is a future-focused subject. Grants are available to schools wanting to install photovoltaic panels.  more...

Schoolchildren are saving energy

At many schools they already exist: schoolchildren as energy detectives, energy managers or energy teams. They track down energy leaks, take the initiative, assume responsibility and ultimately know a great deal about saving energy. Their commitment is often also financially rewarding for their school.  more...
