Firing chamotte with CO2-neutral fuel

Gottfried is converting the firing of chamotte and other minerals in rotary kilns from fossil fuels such as oil and coal to biogenic fuels such as wood.

For this purpose, an extensive plant for processing waste wood into a defined wood flour was built and put into operation.

We have now succeeded in replacing the fossil fuel coal with biogenic wood. In this way, we are achieving a saving of climate-damaging CO2 emissions

in the order of 10.000 tonnes per year. Another important step towards efficient and sustainable raw material production.
