drying plants for the recycling industry

A large number of waste materials can be used as feedstock for energy generation in a circular economy. Alternative fuels like RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) & SSW (Solid Shredded Waste) are coming more into focus. Be it increasing the caloric value for power generation or to improve the controllability of the combustion plants, we at STELA always offer the perfect solution with our individually adapted belt dryers.


Drying plants for the recycling industry

A great amount of waste can be utilised as a raw material for energy generation in the recycling economy. Alternative fuels (RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) & SSW (Solid Shredded Waste)) more and more move into the focus of the recycling industry. Whether to increase the calorific value of energy generation or to improve the controllability of incineration plants, we at Stela always offer the perfect solution with our customised belt dryers.

Recycling management: Use of low-temperature dryers

The abbreviations RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel), SRF (Solid Recovered Fuel) and MSW (Municipal Solid Waste) stand for valuable refuse derived fuels (RDF), which were considered a problem for decades. Whether energy-rich waste from households or from the industry: STELA drying technology converts them into renewable resources for a sustainable energy economy.

The name alone makes it clear that the corresponding drying systems must deal with a very inhomogeneous and sometimes difficult-to-handle raw material. The raw material varies greatly from batch to batch, is neither regionally nor seasonally consistent and can change depending on the time of year.

A customised and efficient STELA drying system guarantees the following points:

The drying process makes the product more transportable and increases its calorific value. In addition, the storability is improved, and the weight loss reduces transport costs.

To achieve the desired improvements, the drying technology at RDF, SRF and MSW is faced with the challenge of reacting individually to the sometimes strongly fluctuating moisture content.

 

Drying plants from STELA Laxhuber

Drying systems from STELA are not only robust, they are also designed to be quickly and flexibly customised to the respective requirements. Automatic final moisture control and efficient ventilation ‘from above’ via frequency-controlled fans are just two key components of low-temperature belt drying, which has proven its worth in the recycling industry for decades.

The technology of the STELA dryer types in detail:

Environmentally conscious thinking, the careful use of resources and the forward-looking utilisation of new raw materials have always been important to STELA. As a climate-neutral company, we conduct research every day to achieve even better results through efficient drying. One focus is on recycling, which can make us less dependent on fossil fuels.
