Doosan Lentjes announces re-entry into the market for the thermal treatment of municipal sewage sludge


17 October 2018, Ratingen, Germany – The German engineering specialist Doosan Lentjes will refocus on the market for the thermal treatment of municipal sewage sludge. Key driver for this decision have been new legal requirements affecting the industry. The company will concentrate on its competencies in the area of mono-incineration.

By drawing back on proprietary OEM technologies, Doosan Lentjes will provide individual or full turnkey solutions based on the proven bubbling fluidised bed combustion. In doing so, it will also use own flue gas cleaning technologies that have proven their efficiency in both waste incineration and sewage sludge applications.

“Against the background of the Regulation on the Reorganization of Sewage Sludge Treatment which was released that year, we expect the demand for mono-incineration solutions to increase”, says Gerhard Lohe, Product Director Waste-to-Energy at Doosan Lentjes. “Refocusing on this business area is our response to the positive market developments we expect in Germany, but, in the future, also in Europa and beyond.”

Dr. Thorsten Becker, Director Sales at Doosan Lentjes, adds: “Mono-incineration solutions allow implementing the, in future, legally required recovery of phosphor from the sewage sludge treatment process in both an effective and efficient way. With our technologies we aim at supporting the waste water sector to realise a reliable sewage sludge treatment according to the new legislation.”
