Energy & Emission Efficiency

EBNER | Environment and energy

The resolute pursuit of sustainability in production and the environment.

EBNER takes environmental responsibility very seriously. To us, “economy” and “ecology” are not opposites. As a globally-active family-owned company we constantly take an environmentally-aware approach, setting standards for environmentally-friendly production.

Customers place their trust in EBNER, not only because we are the world market leader for heat treatment furnace facilities but also because we are pioneers in the field of environmental protection.

E3 - Energy & Emission Efficiency

Within the framework of sustainable production, EBNER focuses on the environment and has developed facilities with an exceptional degree of energy efficiency.

Through the use of new technologies such as energy recovery, lightweight workbases or combustion air preheating using large recuperators, EBNER has continuously improved the energy efficiency of its facilities.

Comparisons made by customers between our facilities and those from our competitors show that we have a clear and measurable advantage in terms of energy consumption.

It is already possible to heat any type of EBNER facility using climate-neutral energy.


Within the framework of sustainable production, the EBNER GROUP focuses on the environment and has developed facilities with an exceptional degree of energy efficiency. It is already possible to heat every one of our facility types using climate-neutral energy.

Our goals.

  • To halve the CO2 and NOx emissions at new EBNER facilities by 2024.
  • To have half of all new facilities heated by CO2 neutral systems by 2030.
  • To have retrofitted 50 % of all existing facilities with climate-neutral heating technologies by 2040.
EBNER is developing the technology required and will make it available.

E3 - road map.

EBNER works intensively on its go-green strategy. CO2 -neutral operation is already possible at every EBNER facility. EBNER begins development of flameless burner systems to further reduce NOx emissions.
Depending on the application, new gas-fired facilities will be entirely equipped with flameless burner systems to further reduce NOx emissions. The development of H2 burner systems is an additional step toward a reduction in CO2.
By 2030, about 50 % of all new EBNER facilities should be delivered with CO2-neutral heating systems. Our central premise is that the number of heat treatment facilities operated with natural gas will be reduced by the increased use of alternative fuels (H2, bioethanol, etc.).
In accordance with the goals of the European Union, our value-added chain will be completely climate-neutral.

The four pillars of the E3 concept.
