The successful joint venture Vecoplan FuelTrack GmbH is repositioning

The aim is to serve the global growing market “alternative fuels in the cement industry” optimally, also in future. For the energy-intensive production of cement, expensive, scarce and fossil fuels are more and more replaced by alternative fuels.
Due to rising energy costs and growing demands for climate protection, alternative fuels generate a significant growth market for the future. The production of energy from residues, bulky, domestic and commercial waste requires complex systems, that cover the whole process from fuel treatment up to the operation at cement kilns. In April 2011 Vecoplan AG, Bad Marienberg and ThyssenKrupp Polysius AG, Neubeckum founded the joint venture Vecoplan FuelTrack GmbH and combined the Vecoplan know-how for processing technologies with the expertise of P­olysius for cement plant engineering.
The two partners of the joint venture Vecoplan FuelTrack GmbH have been reorganized strategically and structurally. In future they will handle the market for   alternative fuels in a concentrated way, organized in separated business units.
Therefore both companies focus on their core competences. Vecoplan AG, as an international leader for shredding, conveying, storing and treating waste and secondary raw materials, still offers its specialized know how to their customers. ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions AG is the merger of the plant specialist ThyssenKrupp Polysius, ThyssenKrupp Material Handling and ThyssenKrupp Uhde.
Also the operating unit “Cement”, formerly Polysius, as a specialist for turnkey cement plants, offers its knowledge in the field of combustion of alternative fuels and secondary raw materials. To put more effort into the market segment Vecoplan has restructured its sales organization in the cement industry sector.
Since March, 1st 2014 this market segment is based on the entire sales force and strength of Vecoplan AG and is supported by its global network.
