OUR ENERGY FOR REINVENTING ENERGY

Since 2010, our energy plant in Bernburg (EAB) has been in operation. The thermal waste treatment facility puts the energy supply of the Solvay location on a broader basis, since the previous plant exclusively used gas. Now also refuse-derived fuels serve as energy suppliers. The generated steam is either used directly at the Solvay works or transformed into electrical energy by means of a turbine.

WITH BEST INGREDIENTS FROM THE REGION

Refuse-derived fuels are waste (residential, commercial or industrial waste) that has been processed in compliance with predefined specifications and calorific values. Tönsmeier produces them for example in Oppin (Saxony-Anhalt region) – by means of special sorting technologies in mechanical processing plants for domestic and commercial waste. For the energy production, these substitute fuels are subsequently burned in Bernburg at a temperature of 850 C.
