14.09.2020 Use of alternative fuels gathers pace in Thailand and Japan

AUMUND Asia, Hong Kong – a subsidiary of Germany’s AUMUND Group – reports that it is supplying specially designed Samson® Material Feeders to customers in Thailand and Japan. The machines are equipped with filters and enclosures so that the intake and onward feeding of fuels can be carried out cleanly.

To reduce climate-damaging CO2 pollution by fossil fuels, energy intensive industries such as power plants are starting to use a higher proportion of alternative fuels. One of AUMUND’s biggest Thai customers operates a plant in Saraburi, just north of Bangkok, where industrial and household waste is pretreated and made into highly calorific alternative fuel. This lightweight material is tipped by trucks directly on to two Samson Material Feeders Type 800, with a capacity of 80t/h each, to be conveyed onward to the thermal process. The Samson® Material Feeders guarantee not only efficiency but also a clean intake of the waste discharged by the trucks. This method avoids the trucks having to drive to the plant, thereby reducing exhaust emissions.

An AUMUND customer in Japan has also decided to purchase two Samson Material Feeders Type 800. These each have a capacity of up to 70t/h and will operate in a new biomass power plant in a port, where they will receive wood pellets and palm nut shells from front end loaders. The dust which would otherwise have been released into the environment by unloading and transporting the biomass from the storage hall to the boiler will be avoided, thanks to the filter and enclosure on the Samson Material Feeder.

AUMUND Asia also recently supplied biomass handling systems to Japan’s Taiheiyo Cement Corp. (see EBS News for week of 3 August).
