UK cement plant uses waste-derived fuel

Saxlund International is installing a waste-derived fuel system for Hope Construction Materials, a British supplier of construction materials.

Located at the company’s Hope Works cement plant in Derbyshire, the system has been designed to provide storage, transportation, weighing and injection of solid waste fuel to the two kilns at the site. The goal is to increase the rate at which Hope can replace fossil fuels with waste-derived alternatives to more than 50%.

The project incorporates a 350-sq-meter fuel reception and push-floor storage solution, reclaim conveyors, process tower with drum magnet and star screen, together with a weighing and pneumatic injection system to the main burners. The system offers the flexibility to handle changing fuel characteristics, even different types of waste-derived fuels, should suppliers change in the future.

Once fully operational, the new solid waste fuel system will run on a 24/7 basis delivering fuel at a rate of up to 5,000 kg per hour to each kiln.
