Askale Cimento has awarded KHD a contract to install the first ever Pyroclon Redox Calciner and Burner at its Van plant in the East Anatolian region of Turkey.
The technology is designed to allow the plant to decrease its NOx emissions and stay within the new limits without requiring secondary measures such as SNCR or SCR to be put in place. This makes it the cleanest calciner technology in the world. It will also save Askale the additional cost of investment, operation and maintenance of such units.
Depending on the operational results achieved by this pilot project, Askale will implement this new technology in its other clinker production lines, located in Gümüshane and Erzurum.
KHD guaranteed Askale Cimento the legal NOx limits (<800 mgNO2/Nm3 dry @ 10% O2), but the expected result is a larger reduction potential compared to all other LowNOx calciner technologies in the market.
Commissioning of the new system is scheduled to take place at the end of 2017.
