Turn waste and biomass into heat

No oil, gas or coal. With polysius® fuel substitution, your plant runs on up to 100% alternative fuels.

Waste and biomass are valuable resources. They can substitute coal, gas and oil as a primary energy source in the precalciner and rotary kiln, significantly save natural resources and reduce CO2 emissions from fossil fuels. With polysius® fuel substitution thyssenkrupp enables plant owners to easily implement the entire waste-to-energy chain from a single source, while meeting all emission limits. At the same time, a substitution rate of up to 100% means independence from scarce natural resources. Update your plant with easy-to-implement add-ons that will significantly reduce operational costs as well as the environmental impact of your cement production.

Lead the industry in sustainability

The use of fossil fuels in the production process translates into increased energy costs and CO2 emissions
Costs for emission certificates are rising annually. Biogenic fuels minimize your CO2 costs.
Primary resources like coal, gas and oil are scarce and will only become more expensive
There is political and social will to reduce fossil CO2 emissions
Current waste disposal practices pose threats to plant and animal life
Your region counts: Whether you’re in Latin America, Europe, North Africa, the Middle East or Asia-Pacific, we have a solution that meets your needs
