English term or phrase: petroleum coke dust (PKS)
Es geht um eine umweltfreundliche Bereinigungsanlage, die verschnmutzte Luft bereinigen soll. Ich nehme an, es wird hier von Abgasen der Autos gesprochen...
Benzinkoksstaub??? Kann das stimmen? Gibt es so etwas?
Vielen Dank!!!

Petrolkoksstaub
Explanation:
I'm pretty sure this is what you are looking for; I guess it's used as a fuel in power stations, or similar installations. I don't THINK it has anything to do with car exhausts, anyway...

Petrolkoks are also sometimes used as fuel for limekilns.
