Processing of raw materials and residues by agglomeration

Situation:

Agglomeration also results in fine-grained feedstocks, e.g. Alternative carbon carriers, fine-grained or ferrous residuals, and made usable for sintering and chess processes. The BFI has successfully completed research on the agglomeration of metal- and carbon-containing feedstocks by means of extensive know-how for the selection of suitable binders, formulations and agglomeration processes. The effects of mineral and organic binders on the production of briquettes and pellets and their properties have been investigated for use in different fields of application. The equipment required for the experimental production of briquettes and pellets as well as the assessment of the mechanical and thermal properties is available in the pilot plant.

Objectives:

  • Selection of suitable recipes and manufacturing processes
  • Cost savings through the use of inexpensive, fine-grained raw and residual materials
  • Resource conservation through recycling and reuse of process-related residues; Reduction of landfill costs

Our portfolio:

  • Selection of suitable binders (organic, mineral) and development of formulations for the respective agglomeration process
  • Briquetting and pelleting in laboratory and technical scale
  • Investigation and assessment of the product quality (strength, moisture)
  • Provision of test equipment and operational testing
