492 waste incineration plants with a capacity of around 96 million tons currently operate in Europe.
Waste incineration plants are complicated and difficult to access. Our low-maintenance KRÖGER grab’s advantage is therefore twofold: they increase your company’s efficiency whilst reducing the safety risk for your employees. We also offer special grab systems which use ropes and motors for different kinds of cranes, for use in waste or alternative fuel incineration plants, CHP plants and for slag handling.
Wastewater sludge treatment
Many wastewater sludge treatment plants are also currently being newly built or expanded. The main focus of is the compulsory incineration of sewage sludge and the ban on landfilling.
Following the 12 to 15-year transition period during which the expansion of existing sewage plant’s capacity is planned, larger sewage plants will no longer be allowed to use their sludge in agricultural soil. However, existing industrial sludge incineration plants are already operating at 80% capacity.
Circular economy is an essential demand of the waste industry: that waste is only to be incinerated or sent to landfill if it cannot be sorted, separated and recycled. The industry is also moving towards automatization and away from manual processes.
