Visit by Chinese Delegation from Alasan, Inner Mongolia
On 30th July 2019, a Chinese delegation led by the Deputy City Mayor as well as the Director of Alasan Economic Development Zone visited IEC to learn more about IEC’s R&D activities. Of particular interest are gasification technologies which are suitable for high ash coal, and the potential to integrate waste as a co-feedstock for chemical production. Following the meeting and a technical tour of IEC’s gasification pilot plants, the delegation also visited the Stadtreinigung Dresden to obtain an overview of modern waste separation and collection methods. A highlight of the visit is the introduction of the biological-mechanical facility using the Herhof process to produce refuse derived fuel (RDF) as co-feedstock for coal power plants.
