Vecoplan Commissions Feedstock Preparation System as Part of Waste-to-Biofuels Project

Vecoplan Commissions Feedstock Preparation System as Part of Waste-to-Biofuels Project

Vecoplan LLC announces the recent commissioning of a multi-million dollar, state-of-the art alternative fuel feedstock preparation system for the city of Edmonton. An integral component in one of the world’s first industrial scale municipal waste-to-biofuels facilities, the mechanical feedstock preparation system will produce 100,000 dry metric tons of RDF per year. All feedstock will be waste that cannot be recycled or composted and has traditionally been sent to a landfill.

Under contract by the City of Edmonton, Vecoplan was responsible for all construction of the RDF/waste processing facility. The facility will supply processed feedstock to an adjacent waste-to-biofuels facility. The Vecoplan feedstock preparation system incorporates advanced receiving, pre-shredding, conveying, screening, separating (ferrous, non-ferrous, density), and re-shredding. Once prepared for fuel conversion, the feedstock will be transported across an access road via a Vecobelt conveyor to an adjacent biofuels facility, where it will be stored in bunkers equipped with Vecoplan’s load-unload conveyor system and then meter fed for conversion via Vecoplan screw conveyors.
