International technology group ANDRITZ has received an order from EON Energy Projects GmbH to supply an EcoFluid boiler with a capacity of 30 MW thermal power. Start-up is scheduled for 2025.
The new, highly efficient bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) boiler from ANDRITZ will burn waste from paper processing and sludge from the sewage treatment plant at the Aschaffenburg site. Once fully operational, it will reduce the dependency on natural gas by 25 percent and save 50,000 tonnes of CO2 per year. The amount of natural gas saved could heat a town with 85,000 inhabitants for a year.
The ANDRITZ scope of supply includes engineering, supply, erection, and commissioning of the BFB boiler including all required supporting equipment and a flue gas cleaning plant with two bag filters and a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system.
The new ANDRITZ plant will secure the best possible utilization of residues at state-of-the-art thermal efficiency. It will also contribute to the lowest possible environmental impact with flue gas values that correspond to the benchmarking best available technology in Germany.
