The 4th Alternative Fuels Symposium, organised by MVW Lechtenberg & Partner,
will take place on 26th – 28th of September at the Wyndham Hotel Duisburger Hof in Duisburg, Germany

Following our successful 3rd Alternative Fuel Symposium in 2016,
the programme of the 4th Alternative Fuel Symposium will feature again a range
of senior industry decision makers and technical experts covering the key aspects
of alternative fuel technologies used in cement, lime and power generation industry.
Municipal Solid Waste as fuel source will be the key topic of this conference. 
Numerous cement plants will present case studies on waste processing and alternative fuels usage

Meet international alternative fuels experts and learn about:
  • Processing Municipal Solid Waste into RDF
  • Drying of RDF
  • New technologies such as fine milling of alternative fuels
  • Case studies for alternative fuel processing, feeding, dosing and process influence
  • Case studies and first-hand experience in using alternative fuels shared by management members of several cement and lime plants
  • Country reports about the status of alternative fuels
More than 2,500 participants of the global cement, lime, power generating and steel industry
as well as from waste management companies have already attended our symposiums and workshops!

Participants’ comments from the Alternative Fuels Symposiums:
“It was prefect. It was conveying, quite intensively the technical part of the RDF (installations). It's good, also to cover "pre-treatment" and sorting, because this is the key for good quality of RDF”
                        • "Excellent overview of RDF”
                        • "Best conference ever“
                        • “It was very profitable for me and I´m very glad for the opportunity to be participant in this workshop”

      Alternative Fuels and Raw Materials Handbook – now available!

      In 2012 we published the "Alternative Fuels and Raw Materials Handbook, Volume 1 and 2". It is the first comprehensive English compendium for decision makers in the field of alternative fuels and alternative raw materials in the cement and lime industry.
      The publication enjoys great popularity among industry managers all over the world. It turned out to be a very valuable source of information which assists them greatly in planning and execution of their projects.

      With two volumes of approx. 1,200 pages in total, this is the most comprehensive compendium of alternative fuels and raw materials for the cement and lime industry. While the 1st volume informs about general issues to be considered when using alternative fuels and alternative raw materials, the 2nd volume focuses on the material itself. A compilation of fact sheets, each one consisting of approx. 20 – 30 pages, describes precisely significant characteristics of substances suitable as alternative fuel or alternative raw material as well as among others its composition, possible processing, storing, dosing a.s.o.
