Extensive product portfolio in the renewable energy sector
ANDRITZ supports its customers in their efforts to protect the environment by developing and supplying technologies that maximize energy generation from renewable resources, such as hydropower and biomass.
The ANDRITZ GROUP generates 45% of its sales from supplying plants and process technologies for generating energy from renewable resources and waste products. Among the most important products in this field are electromechanical equipment for hydroelectric power plants and plants for generating energy from biomass (power boilers and recovery boilers for the pulp and paper industry, systems for drying and pelleting of biomass).
These energy sources are becoming more and more important in efforts to lower dependence on fossil fuels and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Renewable energy sources account for approximately one fifth of global power production, almost 90% of which comes from hydropower. This makes hydropower the most important renewable energy source by far (Source: IHA/IEA).
