Fluidized bed furnaces
The ABRG operates two fluidized bed furnaces (WSO I and II) at the site. In the fluidized bed furnaces, solid, pasty and liquid waste can be thermally treated and recycled.
After any necessary pre-shredding or screening and subsequent mixing, the solid waste is continuously fed into the two units and thermally recycled. Liquid waste is transferred to the tank farm and injected via a closed system.
The following treatment services can be provided: R1, D10, D 15 (a,b)
The approved annual capacity (hazardous and non-hazardous waste) for the WSO I is 42,000 tons. The approved annual capacity (hazardous and non-hazardous waste) for the WSO II is 29,490 tons.
Principles of operation
The general process engineering principle of combustion in the fluidized bed is based on the fact that a bulk of granular, inert material (e.g. sand) is flowed against gravity in a reactor with a nozzle base by air in such a way that the combustible material is brought into a fluidized, floating-like state. The waste is thermally treated and recycled in a temperature range of 850° and 950° C.
