The scope of supply includes replacement of the complete reactor and filter system, the reagent storage and supply system, and product discharge systems. Andritz will also be responsible for engineering, delivery, installation and commissioning of the Circulating Dry System (CDS) TurboSorp.

ZMS operates a municipal waste incineration facility that currently has four lines processing approximately 450,000 tons/a of waste from the region. As part of the Triphönix revamping project for the whole site, ZMS will replace the flue gas cleaning system at incineration line #4 as a first step.

The retrofit is intended to increase the availability of the unit, deliver reliable and affordable energy to industry and households in the vicinity and provide safe waste disposal for the local authorities of towns and cities in the region while complying with the very strict German environmental standards for emissions.

Start-up of the plant is scheduled for mid-2024.
