Today, we offer numerous filtration products that help protect the environment by capturing harmful particles and contributing to clean air. GORE® Low Emission Filter Bags deliver strict environmental compliance and enhanced product capture. DuPont Plunkett Award-winning GORE® Turbine Filters remove damaging particles from the air intake of a gas turbine engine — thereby reducing the engine’s fuel consumption by allowing it to run more efficiently and reliably. The GORE® REMEDIA® Catalytic Filtration System is used in high-temperature industrial operations to destroy harmful furans and dioxins. And our GORE® Mercury Control Systems, available for use in coal-fired broiler or cement applications, are designed specifically to help manufacturers meet regulatory requirements by capturing oxidized and elemental gas phase mercury.

MTU’s Munich and Hannover locations are additionally validated in accordance with the European Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS). Independent external auditors and environmental consultants conduct annual reviews to confirm adherence to the latest environmental protection requirements. This monitoring is supplemented by internal inspections and audits. Its rigorous environmental management in 2015 again resulted in MTU not having to pay any penalties for infringements or violations of environmental legislation.
