  • Waste processed: RDF
  • Plant capacity: 380,000 t /year (total with fi rst lot )

This project includes the design and const ruct ion of the RDF feeding line for the second boiler of the waste-to-energy facility of Lomellina Energia. The project is relat ive to the expansion of the plant built by Ecomaster. The feeding line of the second boiler consists of various long belt conveyors that connect the RDF receiving building with the storage area located nearby the boiler. The f lexibility of the design is such that RDF can be received and stored in both areas depending on the operat ional requirements. The usual funct ioning consists in pre-t reat ing the received RDF in the new receiving building and in t ransport ing it to the storage area, where the fuel is handled by a t ractor loader for feeding the boiler line. The pre-t reatment process substant ially consists in the separat ion of ferrous and non-ferrous metals by means of a magnet ic separator and an eddy current sorter installed in series. In addit ion to the elevating conveyors, the boiler feeding line also includes a system of conveyors that return the excess fuel to the RDF storage area. This design ensures that the boiler always has available all fuel required for combust ion. To provide full system redundancy, the system includes a complete spare line, that is used in case of any break-down and when scheduled maintenance is being carried out to the other line.
