A closer look at the Bio-based Material of the Year 2014 Innovation Award nominees, part 6

The new bionic bio-fan from ZIEHL-ABEGG, made from castor oil-based bio-polyamides, boasts a blade geometry that incorporates knowledge from bionics. As a result, the fan is quieter and more efficient, cutting operating electricity costs and noise emissions and reducing CO2 emissions in several ways. This revolutionary design is used, for example, in refrigeration engineering (refrigeration chain for food to the supermarket), in heaters, heating pumps and for electrical cooling (computer centers, control cabinet cooling, inverter cooling).

This revolutionary design is used, for example, in refrigeration engineering (refrigeration chain for food to the supermarket), in heaters, heating pumps and for electrical cooling (computer centers, control cabinet cooling, inverter cooling). In keeping with its sustainable concept, the fan is 100% recyclable, thus minimizing the CO2-footprint.

Benefits for appliance planners: The fan has greater chemical resistance, better low-temperature impact strength and it can withstand hot water and steam. The market potential is huge: 22 million of these fans were produced in 2012 in Germany alone.
