Sustainable Management of Waste means utilizing them gainfully in an environmentally sound manner by converting them into resources

LOESCHE provides full systems not only for treatment but also for the reception, storage, discharge, transport, and dosing of alternative fuels to either calciner or main burner. Optimized and tailor-made solutions are available depending on the actual plant layout, calciner type, and burner model. Involving our partners aixergee and A TEC, LOESCHE can also assist and take care of the clinker manufacturing process with required plant modifications like combustion chamber, calciner modification, chlorine bypass etc.


Loesche starter kit

LOESCHE has developed a special STARTER KIT to allow for a low-budget start of using alternative fuels in cement plants.

Make your first steps in alternative fuels successful with LOESCHE.

Operation and Maintenance of Waste Conditioning Plants

Want to optimize reliability, safety, availability and energy efficiency in your plant? Outsourcing O&M is one of the most cost-effective ways to do it.

Inadequate maintenance is a major cause of the decline in plant efficiency. When good maintenance practices are in place, your equipment and systems run reliably. And your plant’s output increases long-term.

The cost-effective life-cycle mix of preventive, predictive and reliability-centered maintenance technologies – that’s what we call operational efficiency. Services include equipment calibration, tracking, and computerized maintenance management. The result: We make your plant not only efficient, reliable and safe but also a great place to work.



The process of cement clinker manufacturing is highly dependent on optimized design for flow and reaction processes. To achieve better results in new facilities and in order to increase the performance of customer’s plants, we use latest computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and process simulation methods, which were particularly developed for utilization in the cement industry.

Especially in the combustion of lumpy secondary fuels and plant modifications, we can ensure optimized performance and highest availability. Our engineers work closely together with branch experts to offer the best quality and know-how.



Depending on their age, history, and location, existing landfills can sometimes be unstable, resulting in the possibility of serious problems occurring.

When conditions become critical, slopes can fail, leading to landslides that can flood nearby areas with waste material. Aside from the possibility of human casualties, it is expensive to repair damaged buildings and infrastructure, not to mention the clean-up costs involved.

Because of this, old landfills need to be stabilized as a first step before remediation can take place. They can then form a new resource for recovering their valuable content, which can include metals, plastics, paper, and other recyclable materials. Before carrying out any stabilization, the reasons for the instability of the landfill must be identified and then removed.

“LOESCHE has the expertise to carry out surveys to identify the factors that could lead to failures occurring and those involved in existing instability.”

These factors could include:

  • Geology
  • Topography
  • Ground conditions
  • Tectonic stresses
  • Hydrology
  • Hydrogeology
  • and other factors

Provided that a landfill is stable, it can be used as a resource to recover valuable contents that would otherwise be lost, as well as causing environmental contamination.

Sometimes, landfills that were originally located outside the borders of a town or city have since been incorporated in it through suburban growth. LOESCHE has the expertise to remediate existing landfills.

The aim is to achieve a sustainable and environmentally friendly solution to this while maximizing the benefits and minimizing the amount of material that has to be returned for final landfilling.
