Austrian recycling technology leader REDWAVE has supplied the waste-to-energy processing plant for Norske Skog. Residues from recyclable material sorting are burned as substitute fuel in the new power plant. The Group invested a total of 72 million euros in the power plant, which is intended to cover two-thirds of the site's heat demand and one-third of the electrical energy demand. REDWAVE supported Norske Skog in this project in the planning, delivery and commissioning of the entire waste-to-energy pro-cessing plant, including electrical measurement, control and regulation technology. "The cooperation with REDWAVE was very professional and flexible from planning to the assembly phase to commission-ing," says DI (FH) Bernhard Pichler, Project Manager Fuel Storage K9.

Is waste the fuel of the future?
Refuse-derived fuels are fuels that are mainly obtained from industrial, bulky and commercial waste or sorting residues from recyclable material sorting plants. Waste-to-energy plants help to ensure that less waste ends up in landfills and that renewable energy can be used in a resource-saving manner. The new power plant is of enormous importance, especially in these times, because the use of regional substitute fuels and residues will reduce the consumption of natural gas by up to 75 percent, according to Norske Skog company spokesman Gert Pfleger.
