As a manufacturer-independent planning service provider, we use our many years of experience in the fields of wastewater, waste technology, filtration, membrane technology and renewable energies to create something new and optimize what already exists. To do this, we use state-of-the-art planning tools and place value on ongoing training.
In cooperation with our customers, their goals and concerns, partnership and long-term relationships are particularly important to us.

The office owner also lives up to this claim in the private sphere: a thermally uninsulated residential building from 1963 was purchased in 1999 when the family grew. A new building was deliberately avoided in order not to seal off any natural areas.
1999: Oil consumption for heating and car: approx. 3,800 liters per year and electricity consumption approx. 3,000 kWh/a.
In 2008, the oil heating was replaced by a wood gasification stove including a thermal solar system and a large buffer storage tank and the house was completely renovated thermally, the lighting and the electrical devices were electrically optimized.
2008: Oil consumption for cars: approx. 1,800 liters per year and electricity consumption approx. 3,000 kWh/a.
In 2016 a 3 kW peak photovoltaic system was installed. Oil consumption for car: approx. 1,800 L annually and net electricity generation approx. 300 kWh/a.
So by September 2020 we became a net producer of electricity, but although the number of panels installed was increased when we bought an e-car suitable for everyday use, we now have to buy more certified green electricity from the grid again.
In any case, we could finally put the burning of fossil resources behind us!
2020: Oil consumption 0 L annually and green electricity consumption approx. 2,000 kWh/a
We have also been using certified green electricity in the office for a long time and the building was thermally renovated in 2014. Unfortunately, the district heating for heating and hot water in the Graz network is partly generated with natural gas, so that we cannot fully implement our claim here on our own.
