System partner for
the biogas industry
At first glance, you may not think that farmers and road construction experts have much in common. But with the 2013 launch of TOK®-Sil Resist, an innovative joint compound for biogas plants, a new partnership was born between DENSO and the agricultural industry.
Renewable energy sources are key to doing business sustainably and using valuable resources in an environmentally friendly way. In the agricultural sector in particular, biogas plants represent an excellent source of renewable energy, as they use the by-products of land and animal farming to generate electricity. In early 2000, there were around 1000 plants in Germany and since then, numbers have increased exponentially, rising to 7500 by 2013. There are strict legal regulations surrounding the construction and maintenance of biogas plants as substances such as liquid manure, slurry and silage effluent, which could all cause harm to watercourses, cannot be allowed to seep through into the ground. Silage effluent in particular is a highly aggressive substance due to its acidity levels, and will attack joints in biogas plants and on storage sites. The resulting joint damage can result in silage effluent leaking out, which in turn puts the safety of drinking water at risk.
DENSO is the world's first manufacturer to develop a solution to this problem: TOK®-Sil Resist.
With the development of TOK®-Sil Resist, DENSO is making an important contribution to the supply of sustainable energy.
