Plant Zistersdorf - FCC Environment CEE

Waste-to-energy Plant Zistersdorf Scheme of the combustion process 1 2 4 3 6 1 Delivery and incineration Acceptance of 600 tons of waste per day, up to 70% of it delivered by railway. The volume reduction of the waste is up to 90% and mass reduction of about 70%. Therefore the plant saves volumes desposed on landfills and provides a clean alternative to fossil fuels. 2 Bunker Storage of 4,000 tons of waste, which represents the capacity for one week. 3 Grate kiln Incineration of 20t/h waste on a water cooled grate kiln. 4 Steam boiler The combustion process converts waste to steam. Production of 68t/h steam with 405°C and 42 bar. Steam drives a turbine to produce electricity. Turbine Production of 15MW electricity with 20kV capable of powering 30,000 households. 5 Offgas cleaning Dry offgas cleaning and polution control system with activated adsorption, bag filter and NOx reduction clean emissions. 6 Slag stock 3,000 tons/year of metals are recycled from the bottomash (45,000 tons/year). » Our modern incineration facility in Zistersdorf uses municipal and commercial (industrial) solid waste as fuel to generate electricity in almost the same way a traditional power plant produces energy. It is a highly efficient process. The waste-to-energy plant converts waste to energy through controlled incineration, while at the same time using advanced emissions-control equipment. The incineration process saves primary resources (a comparable power production would need 40 million liters of oil) and also produces raw materials needed in the steel industry (recovery of scrap). The impact on the environment is minimized thanks to the use of railway transport to deliver the input material, effective cleaning of flue gases, no effluents and less usage of potable water. Our waste-to-energy plant in Zistersdorf represents sustainable waste disposal and utilisation, working towards a better quality of life. 5
