Dieffenbacher supplies treatment plant to Hong Kong
In Hong Kong, one of the most technologically advanced fermentation plants for material and energy utilization of separately collected organic waste is currently under development. Led by Suez, the consortium of bidders responsible for the fermentation plant has tasked Dieffenbacher with planning, supplying and commissioning two fully automated treatment lines with a continuous in-feed. Efficient and fully automated treatment technology is a fundamental procedural component of the fermentation plant. The order also includes the control mechanism for the entire treatment plant, which comprises the in-feed unit, size reduction system and system for separating foreign materials. The plant has a throughput of 228 tonnes per day and will be operational in Hong Kong in 2016.
