GEA has received an order from thomas zement for a turnkey plant for the reduction of NOx in flue gas. The order comprises two new reactors for selective catalytic reduction (SCR) including handling of the flue gas transport by induced draft (ID) fans and integration into the Erwitte production site. The contract also includes engineering services as well as the supply, installation and commissioning of steel structures, SCR catalysts, ID fans, heating circuits, duct connection and adaptation of NH3 injection from existing storage tanks. Production can continue during the installation of the SCR unit. Another very important advantage for the customer: Only a short changeover time is required.
With this investment, thomas zement is supplementing the existing non-catalytic technology. After installation, this will create one of the most environmentally friendly cement production plants in Europe.
