BIETIGHEIM-BISSINGEN, Germany – Dürr is building the prototype of the Green Paint Shop for BMW Brilliance Automotive Ltd. (BBA) in Shenyang, China. All of the technological innovations that Dürr has to offer in terms of environmentally friendly, sustainable automotive painting will be used in this paint shop. The goal of the new shop is to create nothing short of the world's most environmentally friendly plant.
RoDip M rotational dip coating is used in the PT/ED area. The rotational movement of the car bodies allows inclined sections at the entrance and exit of the dip tank to be eliminated. This fact leads not only to a significant savings of space, but also to a reduced consumption of energy and chemicals due to smaller bath volumes.
Other technical features that highlight this "green" attribute include the fully automatic integrated paint process (IPP), which eliminates the need for primer and thus a drying phase as well. The spray booths are equipped with EcoDryScrubber technology, the innovative dry separation method from Dürr that requires no water or chemicals. In this way, air recirculation allows a 60-percent savings in energy. The saturated binding material – a hazardous waste in conventional processes – can be re-used without any further treatment. Dürr’s dry separation systems are already in use or under construction in 40 paint lines on four continents.
