Title: First solar car wash facility in Austria
The project is about a car wash that is run by solar energy with industrial water and rain water. The 43 m² solar facility enables CO2-free heating of the water. At the moment a pilot plant is running in Köflach (Austria), where AEE-Solartechnik is working on a pilot study to measure the actual solar output. This special car wash is equipped with mud catchers. The prefiltered waste water runs through oil separation equipment and is additionally cleaned three times before draining into the sewage system. The first environmentally friendly car wash was put into operation in Köflach in 2002.
