Waste incineration in new RDF power plant
A refuse-derived fuel (RDF) power plant is currently being built in Saxony-Anhalt which will be operational by mid-2024 and have an annual incineration capacity of 140,000 tons. This represents a necessary step towards replacing coal combustion in central Germany and supports the development of sustainable, virtually CO2-neutral industrial wax production. Loibl Förderanlagen GmbH is supplying the complete conveying technology for the new RDF power plant for deslagging and ash removal.
Ash removal process
The ash removal system starts at three boiler passes, including the shot cleaning system. An emergency ash removal unit ensures that the ash falls into a sealed container in the event of a malfunction or during inspection work. As a rule, the ash resulting from the combustion process is collected by means of mechanical discharge conveyors, including trough screw conveyors and trough chain conveyors, and conveyed to the pneumatic part of the Loibl ash removal system. This ensures that the ash is transported to two on-site residue silos.
