Subcoal is produced at the Qlyte facility in Delfzijl, the Netherlands. The Qlyte facility produces about 65.000 tonnes of Subcoal pellets per annum, for this it processes approx. 100.000 tonnes of non-recyclable paper-plastic waste fractions which otherwise would have ended in landfill or waste incineration. The Subcoal is used to replace lignite dust or bituminous coal at power stations, lime kilns and cement kilns.
Dyckerhoff started to use Subcoal two years ago and since this period both N+P and Dyckerhoff have worked together to improve the alternative fuel for optimal use in their kilns. The cooperation has led to a new Subcoal fuel which is used at the Dyckerhoff kiln in Lengerich. Furthermore the kiln in Geseke will continue to use the standard Subcoal quality.
