BIM Laundry & Environmental Technology
in our own laundry
BIM is committed to providing cleanliness as a service. Innovative technology – two cutting-edge laundry lines, the environmentally-friendly water reclamation facility, a regenerative afterburning system and the patented BIM-Cycle make sure that the modern textile service provider can perform excellently and form a sustainable base for working with customers and suppliers at the same time.
The laundry procedure used by BIM ensures an effective deployment of water, laundry detergent, and energy consumption with regard to the items to be cleaned. This protects the environment and our natural resources.
The patented BIM-Cycle
- The patented BIM-Cycle (Patent No. 100 43 165, Patent Specification DE 100 43 165 C2 of 1 September 2000) is a circulation process with regard to environmentally-friendly cleaning of contaminated and noxious textiles, especially industrial wipes with extraction solvent residues.
- With high reliability this cycle provides a consistent high quality. By our patented BIM-circulation process we guarantee a careful and gentle as well as environmentally-friendly cleaning of your textiles with extraction solvent residues, especially oil absorbing industrial wipes with extraction solvent residues.
The BIM laundry procedure is performed according to the circulation principle.
- All required laundry detergents and auxiliary washing preparations are fed into the line over a dosing system by computer control as well as the water is added.
- The washing water is thermally and biologically processed after the washing operation,
so that the cleaned water can be fed back again into the washing circulation process.
Therefore, the laundry procedure does not generate any wastewater.
- The process exhaust air of the washing operation is being used to produce energy –
it is re-fed into the process (laundry line, dryer) again as steam for recovering heat.
- A thermal afterburning system emits the waste exhaust air after treatment as „clean air“ to the environment. The exhaust air from the drying process is used for recovering heat for the dryer. Waste exhaust air is being emitted as “clean air” to the environment after the treatment in a regenerative afterburning system.
