Ecomaster supplied the fuel feeding system for the Appia Energy project using RDF and biomass to generate electric power. For this project, Ecomaster supplied the fuel feeding system for the Appia Energy plant, which uses RDF and biomass to generate electric power. In the fuel receiving and storing building there is a floor feeder, which is loaded by means of a wheel loader. The rubber conveyor belt is chaindriven. A conveyor belt takes the fuel up to the level of the steam-generator feeder. A magnet with a self-cleaning belt is set up on this line, separating possible ferrous metals from the fuel. In order to feed the steam generator contin-uously, excess fuel is unloaded into the distribution auger conveyor, also supplied by Ecomaster. The auger conveyor distributes fuel to the two feeding inlets on the steam generator. A conveyor belt takes the excess fuel back to the storage building, where a reversible conveyor can unload it onto the floor or send it to a recirculating conveyor, which brings it back to the feeder. The plant includes an odour control system for the fuel storage building. A centrifugal ventilator draws air from the ventilation ducts and sends it to a biofilter. Upstream of the biofilter there is a scrubbing chamber in which water is sprayed to prevent the filtering material from drying. In fact, to ensure odour control, the filter material must be constantly covered by a superficial layer of moisture where malodorous gases are absorbed before being biologically digested by the microorganisms that develop in the water layer.
