Construction materials production
Gladbeck construction materials mixing plant
The approved throughput capacity of the construction material mixing plant is 250,000 t/a.
Using weigh feeders and intensive mixers, we produce the construction materials developed by our laboratory for special large-scale projects. Our construction materials conserve resources by replacing natural building materials such as cement, lime or gypsum. We utilize the properties of a wide variety of waste materials, which we mix to produce special construction materials. Our classifier system ensures defined grading curves for our materials in order to meet our customers’ quality requirements.
The plant essentially consists of:
- 12 receiving silos
- 4 product silos
- 2 independent mixing lines
- Classifier system
Mine packing slurry plant in Stassfurt
At the Stassfurt site, our company operates a slurry packing plant under mining supervision.
Since 2008, we have been packing salt caverns owned by CIECH Soda Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG with a cavity volume of approx. 4.3 million m³.
In view of the old mining operations surrounding the site, there is an obligation to fill the cavities (caverns) created by brine mining operations in order to protect the surface from subsidence and to prevent salt from entering the groundwater.
Packing slurry in caverns filled with brine in this way has proven to be a particularly safe and economical backfilling method.
Our process for filling large cavities from underground salt mining is particularly safe and conserves resources.
Our specially developed building material is created under constant laboratory control out of fly ash and reaction salts from waste incineration
MinComDVM01K® – The perfect packing material for salt mining
- Development of the formula with the participation of numerous eminent experts and universities
- The basic materials are fly ash and reaction salts from waste incineration plants
- Production of the material at our construction material mixing plant in Gladbeck in a strictly controlled and fully documented process
- Transport of the dry construction material in special silo trucks to the mine packing plant in Stassfurt, where it is processed into slurry packing material with the addition of brine from the caverns and pumped into the caverns
- Annual capacity approx. 200,000 metric tons of packing material
The slurry packing plant in Stassfurt essentially consists of:
- 4 receiving silos
- 1 continuous mixer
- 1 agitator, 35 m³
- 3 agitators, each 180m³
- 4 pumps
- cavern connections
Safety and environmental protection
Possible effects of the Stassfurt plant on the environment, such as dust and gas pollution, noise and interference with nature, have been assessed by experts and taken into account accordingly in the establishment of the plant. Safe plant operation has been demonstrated in a comprehensive safety report, which is also available to the responsible authorities.
Gladbeck Waste Analysis Laboratory
Our construction material specialists develop the formulas of our innovative materials. The construction materials mixing plant is directly connected to our chemical analysis and structural physics laboratory. Continuous sampling ensures consistent quality.
In our laboratory, we monitor all incoming waste and the ongoing production of our construction materials.
The waste analysis laboratory is accredited under the terms of DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018.
