GRAZ, 26-Jul-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — International technology group ANDRITZ has received an order from Currenta GmbH & Co. OHG to deliver a SCR DeNOx plant (SCR: Selective Catalytic Reduction) for the hazardous waste incineration plant in Bürrig at its CHEMPARK site in Leverkusen, Germany.
The DeNOx plant is being built to treat the flue gases from the sewage sludge incineration line with multiple-hearth furnace VA3 and the two lime kilns VA1 and VA2. Completion of the project and start-up is scheduled for the end of 2018.
