TITAN GROUP – Cementarnica USJE AD Skopje (North Macedonia) booked our seminar. Approximately, 30 highly interested attendances joint the 2-days-workshop and were satisfied from the total overview and practical insides regarding waste, pre-processing and sustainable use of quality assured alternative solid fuels.
In cooperation with the Technical University of Braunschweig, training documents on “Production and processing of waste-derived alternative fuels for a sustainable use in the cement industry” were prepared for various Brazilian customers such as CETESB Companhia Ambiental do Estado de Sao Paulo or ABRELPE – Asscociacao Brasileira De Empresas de Limpeza Publica e Residuos Especiais. The documents were developed as a lecture and for self-study.

Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GIZ (Morocco) and Green Climate Found GCF (UN): Feasibility Study of Pre-processing of Municipal Solid Waste and its potential for co-processing.
Serbian Government: Workshop with delegates of Serbian Minstries and Authorities in Capacity Building for Waste and Resource Management (EU accession Chapter
GIZ (Peru) and Environmental Ministry of Peru: Capacity building for improvement of air quality. This symposium was carried out with the support of the Peruvian German Chamber of Commerce and the GIZ. It focussed on the sectors of mining, cement production, lime production, production of chlorine-alkali, power plants as well as the advising the authorities to develop a strategy for air pollution control
2015 – 2016
BEUMER/ Germany: Long-term contract on basic education for pre-processing, materials handling and co-processing of AFR. The initial on-site consultations included assessment of the client’s technical portfolio, basic training in waste management, waste pre-processing and the effects on the quality of the AF produced, and the impact on later material handling and co-processing. Based on this preliminary work the client started to develop solutions for their future product portfolio.
Grupa Ozarow S.A. (CRH) and LEKARO (Poland): Technical comparison of dryer systems and recommendations for correct material management

2012 – 2015
GIZ (Morocco): Converting waste to energy in the cement industry. Disposal of municipal and industrial waste in Morocco is exemplified by major deficiencies such as a lack of a proper infrastructure and funding. Waste, including hazardous and municipal solid waste is disposed of in uncontrolled dumps with the associated effects on health and the environment. At the same time, the uncontrolled methane emission from illegal dumping as well as CO2 released from burning primary fuels will be significantly reduced. In the region of Casablanca alone, more than 3,000 tons of MSW are generated each day. The government of Morocco supported by the GIZ and WhiteLabel, developed national legislation for waste management, recycling and co-processing.
2007 – 2015
GIZ (Morocco): Code de bonnes pratiques – Profile des exigences pour matières et combustibles secondaires. This lighthouse project was initiated by the GIZ Morocco in 2007 to establish a reliable system for sustainable waste management until co-processing. All steps from waste assessment, pre-processing, technical assessement at the pyroprocess until its final use of RDF at the calciner is documented step by step.
GIZ (Morocco): Gestion intégrée des déchets industriels et dangereux. Project development with GIZ to identify feasible waste streams, their composition and pre-processing for appropriate co-processing
