Biomass as the Key to a Sustainable Brick Production - Energy Supply, Generation of Process Heat and Recycling of Gasification Residues

Short Introductive summary

Using the example of a brick factory, the project analyzes how process heat (500 - 1000°C) and residues from gasifiers can be used for industrial brick production. The economic use of biomass in energy-intensive industries is thus demonstrated in an exemplary manner. In the project setup, different scenarios are investigated how heat and power from a wood gasifier (CHP) can be integrated in the brick process. Further goal of the project is the material utilization of coke from the gasifier, which can be used as pore forming agent material in the brick. This cascade system reduces disposal costs, improves the product properties of the brick, conserves fossil fuels, and at the same time increases the cost efficiency of the process. The project consortium exist of plant manufacturers (Burkhardt GmbH) and users (Ziegelwerk Ernst GmbH & Co. KG). Fraunhofer UMSICHT is project coordinator.
