Energetic use of scrap tires has been restricted: cement manufacturers have to switch to other substitute fuels
The use of substitute fuels (SF) had previously been regulated in § 8 (3) of the laws of life-cycle management (Kreislaufwirtschaftsgesetz-KrWG) and facilitated above all industrial companies with a high energy requirement to use SF such as scrap tires in the production of
their products. But the so-called heating value regulation was now abolished on 1 June 2017. This means, among other things, for cement plants that the scrap tires, which are often used because of their high heating value, are now increasingly recycled rather than energetically used; In the future, companies will also have to pay particular attention to the high quality of the waste and have it checked regularly in the laboratory.
In order to meet these requirements, Erdwic Zerkleinerungssysteme GmbH offers plants that automatically take representative samples of the fuel material and process them for laboratory use...
