SDI Biocarbon Solutions, LLC is simultaneously reducing oxides of nitrogen and organic carbon compounds using the Scheuch-patented process.

The Scheuch scope of supply includes two deconox® Solutions, assorted equipment, and installation and commissioning support.

With this order, Scheuch remains true to its international success story and repeatedly emphasizes its technology leadership with Austrian know-how in the American market.

“We are proud to support SDI Biocarbon Solutions on their journey to reduce the CO2 footprint in steel production,” says Heinz Autischer, COO Scheuch Group.

deconox® for the future

deconox® is a sustainable process for industrial exhaust air purification from Scheuch. With deconox®, energy from polluted exhaust air is used to break down other substances such as nitrogen oxides and organic compounds. This significantly reduces emissions in the industrial environment and prevents unpleasant odors. As the residual energy can also be fed back into the production process or utilized in other ways, this also significantly contributes to saving energy.
