Engineering the Future: Releasing the Potential of Waste

Lehmann Maschinenbau shows how to maximise resource recovery at the `waste to energy+recycling`

Only when the appropriate recycling methods are employed can waste become a resource. And this is not a matter of energy versus materials recovery. It all relies on spending some thought on which treatment steps can achieve the optimum. At the 'waste to energy+recycling' on February 19 to 20, 2013 in Bremen, Germany, Thilo Lehmann, Managing Director of Lehmann Maschinenbau GmbH, in his presentation 'Resource Recycling' talks about available sorting and treatment technologies. The company is also exhibiting at the seventh international trade fair and conference for energy and materials from waste and biomass.

Among others, Lehmann Maschinen developed a sorting cabing with conveyor belt for residential waste. This machinery makes separation into fractions with low biogenic content and wet organic fractions possible. Problem materials can be manually removed in the cabin. Further, Jocketa, Saxonia-based Lehmann Maschinenbau offers solutions for the recycling of separted plastics, for the drying of wet residues, as well as compactors for various waste materials. The company's goal is to 'master the future with engineering excellence'.
In his conference talk, Thilo Lehmann discusses how the resource potential of waste can best be released. Sorting, mechanical-biological treatment, plastics recycling, metal sorting, composting of biowaste and biogas production do not have be opponents but can be combined in order to increase recovery rates. With its own bioextrusion process for example, Lehmann Maschinenbau is able to utilise 100% of fermented biomass.
'The motto of the upcoming exhibition in Bremen – security of supply with energy and raw materials – is exactly what we stand for with our company's 67-year tradition', says Thilo Lehmann. 'We want to help our customers to work in a resource-protecting, cost-saving manner.' Lehmann Maschinenbau employs some 100 people and has its own construction department. The company has several decades of experience in plant engineering, during which they worked for a large variety of customers. In October, together with the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems Dresden (IKTS), Lehmann Maschinenbau opened the application center for bioenergy in Poehl, Saxonia.

About the exhibition:
The 'waste to energy+recycling' is held on Februar 19 to 20, 2013, together with the CLEAN GAS AND COAL on the Bremen fairgrounds. The joint motto of the combined exhibition and conference is the security of supply with energy and raw materials. The conference programme gives an overview of what is technologically feasible and also gives room for critical discourse. In 2013, a special focus of the internationally recognised event is on the growth markets Great Britain, Poland and Turkey. The exhibition features technology vendors and know-how providers from Germany and abroad.
