 Project objective

Wherever heat is When heat is needed (for industrial processes and buildings) it usually is produced by a central source via steam. In the Long run steam as a source of energy will be irreplaceable. Steam is produced in rapid steam generators and boiler systems, it is a key component of Europe’s industrial infrastructure. As steam generators are typically using normal tap water, they are facing a big problem – corrosion, which causes considerable economic costs and ecological problems. To avoid corrosion, currently two procedures are available: a chemical and a thermal procedure. For the chemical process, a high dosage of chemicals (sulphides) is added and for the thermal procedure, a significant energy input is necessary. Both procedures are neither environmentally friendly nor resource-efficient nor economically rational. EKOWA succeeded in developing a third way: a compact and cost-efficient system by using an innovative physical procedure for the degassing process of cold soft water – the membrane filtration procedure. The system, called EDS 2500 (TRL 6), is now ready for the introduction on the European market. The aim of the SME Phase I project is a feasibility study for the EDS 2500 to be launched on the European market. The EDS 2500 can prevent the formation of corrosion by passing the water through a degassing module and virtually completely degassing it before it reaches the steam boiler. Our advantages on the market are: - economic efficiency (short payback time) - high consistent quality - small and compact device, easy to handle - environmentally friendly, resource-saving Our clients are small and medium-sized enterprises from the numerous sectors using steam generators (laundries, food, vulcanisers, etc.) as well as hospitals and retirement homes, all together a market volume of € 300 – 400 m is estimated. The product is seen as a key factor for the young start-up EKOWA. With the EDS 2500 we want to solve your water problems with just the right steam!
