AUTOSTRADA-POLSKA 2012: Pulverised lignite – an attractively priced fuel for the asphalt industry

Rheinbraun Brennstoff GmbH presents innovative energy strategies at the road-construction trade fair in Kielce

Cologne. – From 8 to 11 May 2012, Rheinbraun Brennstoff GmbH (RBB) will present innovative energy strategies that are based on pulverised lignite at this year’s AUTOSTRADA-POLSKA in Kielce, Poland.

In the German asphalt industry, pulverized lignite has proven its reliability in more than 20 years of use, and today it is used in some 60 percent of all plants. The decisive advantages for the customers are long-term supply contracts that lead to a high degree of planning certainty and energy costs that are not tied to the volatile prices for petroleum products on the global market. “Not only is pulverized lignite much cheaper than fuel oil,” says Dipl.-Ing. Richard Dietze, responsible Head of Sales at RBB, “but the costs are also predictable in the long run because of the supply contracts.”

Pulverized lignite profits from price stability and high security of supply

Delivery by silo truck or railway tank wagon is cost-efficient even for long-distance transport, so that the range of customers is expanding more and more at the international level. Already, RBB is delivering pulverized lignite to plants in France, the Benelux countries, Poland and Rumania. In the future, RBB intends to add asphalt mixing plants in Slovenia and the Czech Republic to its range of customers. The required investments for the silo, dosing station and burner – some EUR 300,000 per plant – will in general amortize within about one year and will subsequently lead to significant cost savings.

RWE Power AG manufactures some 4.5 million tons of lignite products for industrial needs every year, marketed around the world by its subsidiary RBB. During the two-day event at ?eské Bud?jovice, the participants of the conference have the opportunity to obtain further information on the advantages of, and possible applications for, lignite as an energy carrier, and to get first-hand individual advice.

During the four days of the exhibition in Kielce, interested trade visitors are welcome to visit representatives of Rheinbraun Brennstoff GmbH at stand E 46 in pavilion E and to inform themselves at first hand about advantages and application possibilities offered by lignite as energy carrier and to receive individual advice.
