  • Client:

    GKS Schweinfurt
  • Completion:

  • Task:

    Extended feasibility study


Under the scope of this study, the feasibility of a new incineration plant for municipal sewage sludge was investigated.

The investigation comprised of the comparison of the state of the art technological alternatives for the combustion process, the flue gas treatment and the auxiliary equipment, following which the most economical concept was determined. Furthermore, synergy effects with the existing waste-to-energy plants on the same premises were examined to assess the options to integrate the proposed plant within the premises of the existing facility or to erect the plant elsewhere. The investigated alternatives consider the scenarios with only dewatered sludge as well as scenarios with a combination of dewatered and externally dried sludge.
