POLLUTION industry talk...


POWTECH WORLD MAGAZINE: Growing levels of pollution from fine-particle emissions are constantly putting pressure on industry for better controls. What do you consider the key developments in this area? VDMA: Key developments for technical solutions in occupational safety and health as well as for environmental protection are driven by more


stringent regulatory


legislation and limit values and, thus, develop further in reasonable interaction. The ventilation and dust removal technology sector is constantly developing solutions that make it easier to meet legal requirements. They offer a range of possibilities for removing dust, smoke, aerosols and gases. Future technical solutions will focus on fine- tuning, refined process technology and performance improvements instead of


completely new techniques.


One of the most important developments is the constant digital monitoring of workplace air quality, to enable the operator to intervene in the process and the exposure to air pollutants. Digital monitoring already includes safety precautions that require the detection device or extraction system to be switched on before a machine is in operation.


PWM: Emerging technologies are playing an increasing role in areas such as occupational safety and air pollution control. Where are we likely to see the biggest technology-led changes? VDMA: As different as the substances, particles and gases


We put four questions to VDMA’s Christine Montigny and Guntram Preuss, industry experts in air pollution and drying technology, about the challenges in dust removal


that pollute the air during work are, so is the versatility of the extraction and dedusting technology. This technology cleans the air of harmful substances - from chips to the finest dust particles. Manufacturers utilise the entire spectrum of separation techniques, from the four classic separator types to adsorption, absorption, oxidation and biological methods. Depending on the application, individual solutions can be found by combining different processes and separator types. In this way, pollutants are reduced to an acceptable level against the background of occupational safety and environmental protection. The improvement of energy efficiency is still important. Especially in the case of existing plants, by far not all economically reasonable potentials have been exhausted. Improvements can be achieved by process optimisation with proven technologies. But it is also the responsibility of the operators to maintain their plants and to train their personnel.


PWM: At POWTECH 2019 your contribution was themed “Dust recognises boundaries – free trade doesn’t,” following the VDMA campaign for free trade. What is the current situation? VDMA: A recent study provides a comprehensive picture of the trade barriers that the mechanical and plant engineering industry deals with on export markets.
