Fuel for Asphalt Plant Thought

Pulverized Lignite has become fuel for asphalt plant operators across continental Europe. These plant operators are said to be increasingly using this pulverized lignite, also known as brown coal, from Germany to fuel or partially fuel asphalt production under the product name “Lignite Energy Pulverized.” By switching to Lignite Energy Pulverized, the usual difficulties associated with converting a plant from fuel oil to cheaper natural gas, are not encountered with a switch to Lignite Energy Pulverized because delivery is by silo truck or railway tank wagon. The next steps to firing in a closed system are generally paid off within two years. Additionally, independence is said to be maintained as the plants are delivered with a bi-fuel burner so that the return to oil is possible at any time.
