Since 2012, SMS group’s range of sustainable technologies has been combined under its Ecoplants label. This label is awarded to plants and plant concepts that distinguish themselves from reference plants through their significantly lower consumption of input materials, consumables, and energy, or through reduced emissions and higher recycling rates.
It goes without saying that the modernization of existing plants can also considerably reduce a company’s environmental footprint. Therefore, SMS group has introducted “Ecomodules” to describe the numerous solutions that are available for the modernization of plants. Within a reasonable investment framework, the technologies developed and marketed under this label make a significant contribution towards improved sustainability and also offer positive economic effects.
With a focus on the whole process chain, SMS group continually evaluates how the sustainability of the solutions and innovations offered can be enhanced on an ongoing basis. Any technology that is put forward for Ecoplants classification is subjected to a sustainability check by the engineers responsible. An Ecoplants solution must meet the following criteria:
During the many years a plant is in operation, market condition can change drastically. Regulations on emssions get tougher, energy costs go up or raw materials become more expensive. With SMS group's "Ecomodules" you can modernize your existing plant in order to reduce the ecological footprint and save money.
Condoor facilitates all activities carried out in the slag door area for improved performance, safety, quality and reduced costs.
Required suction capacity is reliably provided by mechanical pumps. Reducing operational cost by approximately 70 - 80 %.
Other than the reasonable Ecomodules concepts, our Ecoplants mark stands for comprehensive and sustainable plant solutions, in recognition to the fact that sustainability has become a key growth factor for our customers - for economic and ecological reasons. Ecoplants solutions do both.
In all of our product units, we systematically examine how we can continually improve the sustainability of the solutions we offer. This is added value that we can quantify by comparing it to the respective standard technology. Ecoplants has already started having an effect - sustainably and profitably.
