Vassiliko Cement Works is among the biggest industrial players in the island state and operates one of the largest and most advanced cement plants in Europe near Mari, between Limassol and Larnaca. To ensure the amount of energy needed to produce approximately 6000 metric tons of clinker per day, the company relies on resource-saving alternative fuels from its associated company Enerco. “We are delighted to report that since we commissioned Lindner’s new Polaris 2800, it’s been possible to increase our waste treatment capacity for the production of alternative fuels suit-able for Vassiliko’s calciner. We succeeded in more than doubling the quantities of local waste streams treated – without delay despite the ongoing difficulties,” says George Americanos, General Manager at Enerco.
The new shredder, complemented by associated Lindner system components, produces on-site fuel with a particle size of approximately 50 mm out of end-of-life tyres, mixed and bulky waste as well as waste wood. This waste is regionally collected.
