BRÜCKNER brings climate-friendly technologies to India

The BRÜCKNER group of companies is since 65 years worldwide one of the leading producers of high-tech systems for the finishing of textiles and woven technical fabrics. Innovation, sustainability and the highest quality and reliability “made in Germany” are the most important factors of our success. 
 
In Europe drying lines are almost exclusively operated with heat-recovery units. In some countries this is even prescribed by the law. In other countries such as in the big textile-focused India the costs for energy are partially subsidized. 
 
This increases the pay-off time of energy saving systems considerably. In addition, the investment budgets are often very low and leave no room for such systems because the big trade chains from Europe and the USA are very price-driven in their purchase of clothing and home textiles. But the public questions more and more the production conditions and the compliance with ecological standards.
 
As per present estimates India will be already in 2025 the most populous country in the world with 1.5 billion people. As emerging market it will undergo a similar development as China and the energy demand will probably increase disproportionately. 
 
On a global scale the Indian textile sector plays an important part. India produces 14 % of the worldwide textile yarns and fabrics corresponding to 60 billion m² textiles per year. 66 billion kWh thermal energy are required for this quantity which corresponds to a consumption of approx. 1.1 million tons of coal when this fuel is used. Given a simultaneous energy saving of about 10% by heat-recovery systems would allow the saving of yearly 230.000 tons of CO2 in the In-dian textile industry alone. The prerequisite for this would be that all lines are pro-vided with a heat-recovery system.
 
The production and use of process energy in the Indian textile industry takes place often with old concepts and systems and leads therefore to considerably negative consequences for the environment. It is our responsibility to inform our customers also in India about the possibilities to save energy and to show them ways for a better protection of our environment.
 
Particularly in case of energy-intensive processes such as the drying or heat-setting of textiles and other materials present an enormous energy saving potential. Some years ago we began with a development project to show these potentials, the central point of which was to use a mobile heat-recovery unit in several Indian textile companies.
