CBI Customer Case Study
Resourceco / Adelaide Brighton Cement, Adelaide, Australia
Resourceco and Adelaide Brighton Cement went into a partnership to take C&D material and make RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) for the cement Kiln with the intention of saving the kiln 6 to 8 million dollars in fuel costs per year. The two companies traveled all over the World to find the best solution for this tough application. In the end, CBI was the only company in the World that could supply all of the equipment required for this operation. The system was designed and installed to take all the material with high calorific value and grind it down to a 40mm size so that it could be blown into the kiln without any hang ups. The system allows all the inerts to be removed and the rest to be processed for fuel. The facility takes in approximately 250,000 ton/year with half going to fuel and has been operating since 2005.
