Supplier of solid-recovered fuels (SRF), N+P, has extended its agreement with Cypriot cement maker, Vassiliko Cement Works Public Co. Ltd., and its subsidiary, Enerco Energy Recovery. The Netherlands-based company will now provide SRF from the UK and Italy to Vassiliko until 31 December 2022.
Vassiliko Cement Works is targeting 55% replacement of fossil fuels with alternative fuels by 2022, the company said in a press statement. To support this goal, N+P’s Subcoal pellets have been trialled in the plant’s coal mills.
Produced from SRF and refuse-derived fuels (RDFs), Subcoal pellets can replace bituminous coal and petcoke in cement kilns. According to the N+P website, the chemical composition of Subcoal pellets is comparable to bituminous coal in terms of heating value, and it can be treated in the same way.
“First results of this trial are looking very promising and further trials will be done in the near future,” said N+P.
The extended contract is the “foundation of a long-term cooperation between Vassiliko Cement Works, Enerco Energy Recovery, and N+P,” continued the SRF supplier.
N+P began its supply arrangement with Vassiliko in 2015 and is currently sending more than 2500 tpw to the plant.
