As almost a license to print money everyone knows it, the longing for the proverbial “egg-laying wool milk sow”, the purpose weapon par excellence. As the visitors of the event “PIUS on the ground” in the main-Kinzig-Forum in Gelnhausen learned, a programme of the Hessian Ministry of economics makes now almost true dream. Gelnhausen, February 3, 2010 – the event at the meeting room of the circle tags invited the unit had economic and work of the main-Kinzig-Kreis.

This can get up to 9,000 euros in funding depending on the region for PIUS projects three years from land funds.
How effective are these funds, Gert Fischer of Fischer demonstrated technology consulting. He reported the results of the PIUS Advisory from a model project in the Herborner Pumpenfabrik. The company, which manufactures pumps for the industry, pure and waste water technology, which reduced during PIUS measures his consumption of compressed air and in the Foundry is now melting and cooling heat recovery systems. Also, it could significantly reduce energy consumption when the ladle heating and the heating of the production areas. “Overall the Herborner Pumpenfabrik has invested around 190,000 euros after the PIUS Advisory in process optimization. Savings per year less than 160,000 euros are since then”on the other, Gert Fischer informed.
