Title: Organic cleaning of discharged air with energy recycling
In this innovation we are talking about an air cleaner with a closed water circuit. Polluted and oxygenic emissions are cleaned with a diluted microorganism suspension. This roughly follows the principle of a sewage treatment plant at the chemical cleaning stage. To put it simply in this process a spray mist filters dirt particles from the fumes in a tank: Ammoniac or odorous substances from cow sheds or liquid manure. The new idea is that the dirty water does not run into the communal waste sewage treatment plant but instead stays in its own closed circuit where micro organisms decompose the contaminants. Water cleans the air without making itself dirty. A further innovation: the organic washer powers itself with a heat pump.
