plastic news Adblue storage systemFor the backup power supply system in the German Reichstag building in Berlin, Haase has supplied an AdBlue chemicals storage system. Because of the difficult access to the building’s cellar, the tank was assembled on-site from individual components. Parts were made with Atlac resins supplied by Aliancys and BÜFA, because of quality consistency and their excellent chemical resistance.

The Reichstag Building in Berlin (Reichstagsgebäude), hosts the German national parliament (Deutsche Bundestag). For the new backup power supply system located in the cellar of the Reichstag Building, it was required to install a 10 m³ chemical storage tank for AdBlue® chemicals. These are used to neutralize the Nitrous oxides in the exhaust gases produced by the large diesel generators. The Reichstag Building dates back to 1894. At those days, obviously it was not foreseen that such large tanks had to be installed retroactively. “We realized that access to the cellars was very limited and only small components could enter through existing doors and windows”, explains Thomas Falkenbach, General Manager of Haase.
