The Karsdorf Cement plant is part of Opterra GmbH, Germany. The plant has pushed towards sustainable cement production with investments into emission reduction systems as well as alternative fuel utilization over the recent years.
Claudius Peters was chosen by the Karsdorf cement plant as well as Opterra to support the plant in its next step towards sustainable cement production with the state-of-the-art clinker cooler technology: the newest ETA cooler generation. Reducing the fuel demand of the cement production by offering the highest thermal efficiency in clinker cooling while minimizing the electrical power demand for the cooling air supply have a direct positive environmental impact by significantly reducing the CO2 emissions.
Furthermore, the self-protecting and robust design of the ETA cooler gives the client the ability to utilize alternative fuels bringing foreign metal bodies into the clinker without threatening the availability of the pyro line. The ETA cooler will be installed in both existing cement lines in two steps until 2023 replacing 3rd generation grate coolers from the 1990s. A perfect match for the Claudius Peters product philosophy: sustainability through quality.
