HeidelbergCement to modernise Schelklingen

HeidelbergCement will invest EUR100-150m in its Schelklingen works, Germany, according to Hans Georg Kraut, director of the works. The new kiln will not alter the 4700tpd clinker capacity of the plant, but will significantly reduce emissions and energy consumption.

Later this year, the old kiln will be disassembled and a new kiln built in its place. The second old kiln at the site will also be dismantled once the new kiln is commissioned in 2018. In addition, two storage halls for waste tyres and other alternative fuels such as sludge and plastic will be constructed.
