At their site in Bruchsal, company Suez Sued GmbH operates a recycling plant with a working area of approx. 25,000 m². In the recycling plant, the incoming waste is sorted and separated into usable fractions. The remaining materials, which are no longer recyclable, are processed in a separate RDF production line. By processing the residues to RDF, the material is used in a higher-value thermal utilization, which leads to substitution of fossil fuels.
According to THM, the RDF production line is running in two-shift operation. Due to processing of an additional material stream, the residual quota of the plant should be further reduced. A new granulator was needed for this purpose.
After the projecting phase, Suez Sued selected a granulator from THM recycling solutions GmbH. The task was, to process the additional material stream of 15 t/h in continuous operation with only one granulator. A THM granulator type AG2008 was selected and installed. After installation and commissioning of the Granulator AG2008, the machine was subjected to a four-week continuous power test in real operation. Afterwards the responsible Suez employee certified the performance of the THM granulator.
