 Project objective

Industrial air pollution is a major health risk, which causes 400 000 premature deaths each year in the EU. Another 6.5 million people fall sick as air pollution causes diseases such as asthma and bronchitis.

Manufacturing industry is one of the biggest air polluters which is why the sector needs to tackle the issue by more effective and accessible industrial dust extraction solutions.

Filtra Group Oy has developed an innovative industrial dust extraction technology, Dustcomb that complies with the current air quality regulations and enables 80% cost-cutting compared to technology used at industrial plants at the moment.

Around 200 000 industrial plants globally are affected by new emission norms and need to install advanced filtration units in the coming years.

Dustcomb has already conducted operational tests in SSAB steel plant. The results confirmed that our innovative fluid dynamics phenomena based solution meets all required emission standards and brings significant savings for the plant.

In addition, our solution´s excellent cost-efficiency ratio, retrofitting compatibility, wide operating temperature tolerance, low maintenance costs, and other key benefits will ensure fast market uptake globally. We have already reached preliminary agreements with potential clients in Europe and Asia via our industrial partners.

We will generate our revenue from Dustcomb sales and regular maintenance. By 2023, we plan to reach annual installation capacity of 200 Dustcomb units, which leads to approximately €100 million turnover and 300 new jobs in the value-chain.

We have secured all necessary resources and have an experienced team to finalize our technology development and evolve to sales-oriented emission control solutions provider.

The SME phase-2 project enables us to: 1. complete our development phase, 2. create replicable concepts for scale-up, 3. pilot the solution in leading steelmaking plant and 4. start our global commercialisation phase
