Financial volume: EUR 740 thousand


The subject of the implementation was the layout of the fuel management in the thermal process hall of the pyrolysis line. The entire combustion concept is chosen so that the combustion system, while minimizing investment costs, allows year-round combustion of different ratios of stored fuels in all operating modes.

The energy source - pyrolysis line will burn the different types of stored fuels individually or by proportional mixing of stored fuels in the operational storage tanks. Material transport is handled by a newly constructed deep storage tank facility where trucks will be used to discharge the material. From the deep storage tank, the material is conveyed by a twin screw conveyor to a basket elevator, which ensures that the material is brought to the required height. Subsequently, the three operational tanks located in the thermal process hall will be filled using a redler conveyor system. A different type of fuel will be stored in each tank. The material will be removed from the tank by means of an active sliding floor into the individual hoppers of the screw conveyors. The screw conveyors will convey the operator-specified fractions of material to the hopper of the pipe-chain conveyor, which will convey the material to the pyrolysis line hopper.
