Innovative Products and Technologies
Since 1983, our technology center in Växjö, Sweden—one of the largest in the world in the field of environmental control solutions—has been at the forefront of advanced research and development for air quality and CO2 control solutions. Focusing on technology innovation and product validation, it has test halls for pilot operations and flow modeling, an analytical laboratory specializing in particle and environmental analyses, an instrument workshop, high voltage facilities for ESP electrical testing (SIR, T/R sets), and a mechanical workshop for pilot equipment manufacturing.
GE has developed the Smartline range of products to cater to smaller-sized applications, such as district heating, small power units, thermic fluid heaters, lime kilns, foundries, and metallurgical plantsLearn more
