ANDRITZ verfügt über eine große Bandbreite an innovativer Recyclingtechnologien zur Rückgewinnung, Aufbereitung, Trennung und Verwertung unterschiedlichster Abfallarten und Rejekten aus der Papierindustrie sowie zur Produktion erneuerbarer Energien. Zudem ist ANDRITZ der führende Lieferant von Anlagen, die auf den Boiler-Technologien BFB (Bubbling Fluidized Bed) und CFB (Circulating Fluidized Bed) fußen. Diese eignen sich hervorragend für ein weites Spektrum von Verbrennungsanwendungen.

Waste to energy – Converting household and industrial waste to RDF

ANDRITZ supplies state-of-the-art equipment for pre- and post-shredding, screening, classification and drying to separate Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) and industrial production residues. The entire flow of waste is separated into organic and inorganic components. Valuable materials, such as metals, are removed from the process at an early stage and can be recycled. The non-recyclable residual share with high heat value (RDF) is processed to yield highly calorific substitute fuels that are used in the cement and steel industry, or in power plants.

Process advantages

  • Powerful and reliable shredding
  • Efficient removal of metal parts and traces
  • Fine-shredding with defined screen sizes using the ANDRITZ single-shaft shredders ADuro G or ADuro U
  • Separation after each shredding stage
  • High-quality substitute fuel fractions
  • Metal can be purified further with the ADuro QZ shredder

Fluidized bed technology: Decades of experience go into every ANDRITZ fluidized bed boiler

ANDRITZ is a leading supplier of plants based on Bubbling Fluidized Bed (BFB) and Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB) technologies for boilers. These different technologies are distinguished by capacity, fuel, and application. Excellent mixing and heat transfer make
fluidized bed technology ideal for a wide range of applications. A variety of coals and lignites can be combusted, as well as clean biomass (bark, agricultural, forestry, and sawmill residuals) and many other fuels (demolition wood, refuse-derived fuels, peat, various sediments, etc.).


EcoFluid – BFB technology
In a BFB unit, fuels are thoroughly mixed in a dense suspension of fluidized bed material in the lower furnace. BFB systems operate at a moderately low fluidization velocity and under controlled temperature conditions. Thanks to the large heat capacity of the fluidized bed material, which is mostly sand, the combustion conditions are ideal for biomass and recycled fuels with varying moisture contents. In many installations, mixed fuels are fired simultaneously.

PowerFluid – CFB technology
With CFB technology, the flue gas velocity in the furnace is higher and the bed is expanded and entrained with the flow. The bed material flows with the flue gas through the furnace, after which the material is separated by cyclones and returned to the lower furnace. CFB technology also allows an extremely wide range of fuels to be fired in the same unit. The efficient mixing and relatively low combustion temperatures contribute to low emissions of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitric oxides.

Advantages of ANDRITZ fluidized bed technologies

  • Fuel flexibility
  • High burn-out and conversion rates
  • Inherently low emissions
  • Excellent availability, with long continuous operating periods
  • Operational flexibility, with good load following capability
  • Minimal maintenance
  • Proven design
