ANDRITZ to supply semi-dry flue gas cleaning system for a waste incineration plant in Schwandorf, Germany


International technology group ANDRITZ has received an order from Zweckverband Müllverwertung Schwandorf (ZMS) for a retrofit of the flue gas cleaning system in a furnace line at the municipal waste incineration facility in Schwandorf, Germany.

Start-up of the plant is scheduled for mid-2024.

The scope of supply includes replacement of the complete reactor and filter system, the reagent storage and supply system, and product discharge systems. ANDRITZ will be responsible for engineering, delivery, installation and commissioning of the Circulating Dry System (CDS) TurboSorp.

The retrofit of the flue gas cleaning system in line #4 is intended to increase the availability of the unit, deliver reliable and affordable energy to the industry and households in the vicinity and provide safe waste disposal for the local authorities of towns and cities in the region while complying with the very strict German environmental standards for emissions.

Zweckverband Müllverwertung Schwandorf (ZMS) operates a municipal waste incineration facility that currently has four lines processing approximately 450,000 tons/a of waste from the region. As part of a major revamping project – named “Triphönix” – for the whole site, ZMS will replace the flue gas cleaning system at incineration line #4 as a first step.
