XXL Rotting Tunnels By Eggersmann For Composting Plant in Luxembourg

XXL Rotting Tunnels By Eggersmann For Composting Plant in Luxembourg
6 Jul 2022  |
Eggersmann Anlagenbau built a new composting plant in Monnerich, Luxembourg for the client syndicate Minett-Kompost. The official inauguration took place on 1 July 2022 in the presence of Luxembourg's Minister of the Environment Joëlle Welfring.

Eggersmann Anlagenbau replaced an aging composting plant of the “Wendelin” type with state-of-the-art technology. Due to the hall geometry of the old plant, the longest Eggersmann rotting tunnels to date, 42 meters in length, were built here. A total of 8 rotting tunnels with tunnel filling units as well as the associated conveying and exhaust air technology were included in the scope of supply. In addition, a FORUS shredder, a TERRA SELECT trommel screen, and a star screen deck, also from Eggersmann, are used in the new plant – all are operated purely electrically.

The plant processes a large part of Luxembourg’s organic and green waste. The throughput amounts to 20,000 tons per year.
