We are

a competent partner for all aspects of exhaust air purification and heat recovery since 1965. We offer you turnkey facilities for various environmental tasks


Our collected, comprehensive expertise gives us the opportunity to provide you with the optimal solution at all times. We use our expert knowledge in the development of sophisticated facilities with high operational safety which reliably comply with the required limits.

Customer orientation

We analyse the initial situation together with you and then put goals into concrete terms.
We then develop a customised system solution for your application. We pay particular attention here to safe process technology at low investment and operating costs.

Subsequent to the basic engineering, our project engineering team supervises you, starting with the official approval through to the installation and the commissioning. We round off our profile by offering to maintain the systems technology as part of a partial or full service.


Quality Management

We constantly strive for further development in the service of our customers.
Customer satisfaction is the foundation of our actions.

Environmental Management

We see it as our task to offer our customers innovative and tailor-made solutions
with a focus on sustainability, energy efficiency and resource conservation.

Federal Water Act

Our company is reviewed and approved under the Federal Water Act (WHG).


ConsultationWe can advise you on all aspects, from process technology, to approval and financing. 
Planing and engineeringCustom-made solutions from one source. Based on know-how gained over many years, we plan, develop and design exhaust air cleaning plants in close collaboration with our customers. 

Production and construction

All-round supervision during installation and commissioning. To constantly produce the best possible solution, it is also necessary for us to choose the materials for the plants components.


The commissioning of the plant is carried out by our certified specialist engineers. This comprises of the mechanical and process adjustments of the plant as well as the practice orientated training and on site instruction of the operating personnel.

Research and development

We handle various exhaust gas purification tasks in our laboratory. In connection with our mobile pilot facilities, we create the data base for the optimisation and development of existing process concepts.

Measurements and laboratory analyses

Measurements and laboratory analyses to determine the design data are carried out by our engineers and technicians.


To ensure high system availability and to achieve maximum operational safety, exhaust air purification systems must be regularly and thoroughly serviced and inspected.

The need for action in the field of exhaust air purification is normally a result of legal specifications. Numerous laws and regulations govern the fields of:

Pollutant emissions, Odorous emissions, Dust and aerosol emissions

We are in a position to choose the best possible technology for different problems from our broad product range and to implement these on a turnkey basis.

Here, we are responsive to individual requests and design a plant which is specially tailored to your needs.
Odorous emissions:

Odours frequently result from a mixture of several hundred single material components.
Based on more than 200 commercial plants for removing odorous substances and supplied for
very different tasks, we possess the necessary skills and experience in this area.

The following are employed:

  • BIOKAT-Filter
  • WEBICO-Filter
  • BTC-Bioactive scrubbers
  • DS-Bioactive scrubbers
  • Wessel-Adsorber
  • Wessel-RTO-Plants

Pollutant emissions:

For the broad field of pollutant elimination of inorganic or organic compounds, such as solvents, we provide the following systems:

  • BIOKAT-Filter
