Die Müve-Biel Seeland AG ist für die umweltgerechte thermische Abfallverwertung aus der Region Seeland (Kanton Bern, CH) zuständig. Abfälle aus 49 angeschlossenen Gemeinden mit über 151.000 EinwohnerInnen werden in dieser Anlage verwertet. Dabei werden Strom, Fernwärme und Prozessdampf für die angrenzende Stadt und Region produziert.
Within the project ”Thermal utilization of Refuse-Derived Fuels (RDF) for the recovery of ash fractions“, WEHRLE was awarded the contract for the construction of a fluidized bed plant at Zweckverband Abfallbehandlung Kahlenberg (ZAK) in December 2020. The Refuse-Derived Fuels are produced in ZAK’s mechanical-biological waste treatment plant (MBT), which has been in operation since 2006 and is based on the innovative MYT® process (Maximum Yield Technology).
WEHRLE-WERK AG based in Emmendingen is supporting the Medical Center – University of Freiburg in modernizing its own thermal power station and increasing its energy efficiency by installing a new steam pressure boiler. WEHRLE developed, manufactured and assembled the new boiler including complete burning system and control technology. The main advantages of the new boiler are its optimized operation and low nitrogen emissions.
A sewage sludge mono-incineration plant for the decentralized disposal of 3 t/h of sewage sludge located in the District of Straubing-Bogen (Lower Bavaria) is currently in process of authorization. The process technology for the fluidized bed plant with a capacity of 3.75 MWth has been further developed to generate quality ash particularly rich in phosphorus and with a low content of pollutants, which facilitates further processing into fertilizer.
Phosphorous is an essential element for all life on earth. Since 2014, phosphorous has been rated as one of the “critical” elements by the European Commission. Again in Stuttgart (Germany), 180 Experts from different branches came together for the 4th time to discuss the interdisciplinary challenge of establishing a P-recycling economy and the recent developments in politics, economy and process technology.
