Waste to Flame solution delivered to Cimpor – Souselas, Portugal

A full turnkey solution for handling alternative fuels at a cement mill, including screening, dosing and feeding systems, designed and installed by BMH, including all civil works. The installation uses its single receiving station to handle SRF fuel of various qualities for separate storing. From the storage, the fuel is dosed and fed to the pre-calciner by mechanical transportation up to 10 t/h. The fuel, which is destined to the main burner, goes first through oversize separation and metals removal to treat it suitable for pneumatic transportation. The main burner can be fed at the rate of up to 5 t/h.

Plant was delivered in 2010 and enlarged in 2016.
