FLSmidth to Deliver Pyro Upgrade to Brazilian Plant

FLSmidth was awarded a contract that will both increase Secil Supremo Cimentos’ Adrianópolis plant’s capacity to 3,900 tpd and decrease its dependence on fossil fuels.

The plant, located in the Brazilian state of Paraná, was initially supplied by FLSmidth and commissioned in 2015.

The scope of supply includes products and engineering to upgrade the pyro process system. In particular, modifications will be made to the preheater, cooler and related auxiliary equipment. As a result, not only will the plant’s capacity increase, but Supremo will also reduce the use of fossil fuels and reach 40 % thermal substitution with a mixture of RDF (refuse derived fuels), shredded tires, and wood. 

“We are grateful for our continued partnership with Supremo who has consistently invested in the latest technology. As the plant was already operating an ILC-5 stage preheater from FLSmidth, it was well positioned to use alternative fuels. Pre-heater modifications can be an easy gateway to greater fuel substitution, lower emissions and increased capacity,” said Jens Jonas Skov Larsen, head of capital sales, FLSmidth.

Commissioning is scheduled for the second half of 2024. The value of the order was not disclosed.
