Using alternative fuels
Pre-processing of waste into a high grade alternative fuel and its application is becoming increasingly attractive to reduce production costs and CO2 emissions – especially for energy-intensive areas like the cement and lime industry. Furthermore, all organic pollutants will be destroyed in the kiln at temperatures of approximately 2,000 °C and will be absorbed by the surplus of finely ground limestone. The use of different types of alternative fuels is governed by the availability in a given region and especially the economic aspects.
Our AFR systems are designed to meet the particular requirements of functionality and performance under the strain of daily operation. In addition to a comprehensive supply of reliable systems for handling alternative fuels, we also focus on planning of logistics and customized conveying and warehouse systems, including crane halls, steel structures and of course turnkey deliveries of mechanical part. Due to the modular system of all design groups and system components, each project is engineered and designed individually.
The importance of flexibility and reliability
The alternative fuel markets are still developing. It is in the interests of the plant operator to prefer solutions which could be continually and easily customised to use the of most efficient and economical fuel.
The thermal substitution rate (TSR) also has a significant effect on the overall design of the system and the components used. The higher the required and achieved TSR, the greater the need for reliable equipment, because the substitution of primary fuel is very difficult due to technological and economical aspects.
