NUMBER 1 IN THE LIME INDUSTRY

LEP Lignite Energy Pulverized by Rheinbraun Brennstoff (RBB) is the number 1 source of energy in the lime industry, and with good reason. LE is a fuel boasting a particularly attractive, stable price whose high net calorific value makes it ideal for modern lime kilns It is putting an end to the lime industry’s dependence on volatile energy sources like gas, hard coal or petroleum coke. Energy costs can be calculated for the long-term.

RBB has developed unique expertise in industrial processes specific to the lime sector over the course of decades of working together with the lime industry at a corporate and individual level. This expertise led us to create a high-quality fuel manufactured from Rhenish lignite. The lime industry is reaping the benefits.

CONSISTENTLY HIGH NET CALORIFIC VALUE

Its high level of volatile matter, consistent grain size and consistently low water content give LE Pulverized a high and constant net calorific value. Its ideal burning characteristics make for energy-efficient industrial processes.

OUTSTANDING PROFITABILITY

No other fuel is so cost-effective. Long-term supply agreements and constantly stable prices mean energy costs can be calculated years in advance.

VERY LOW SULPHUR AND ASH CONTENT

LE Pulverized has been used to burn high-quality lime for around 30 years as a result of its very low sulphur and ash content. The burnt lime can be used in the iron, steel, paper, fertilizer, sugar, soda and construction materials industries, as well as in wastewater and emissions treatment.

HIGH LEVELS OF WHITENESS FOR BURNT LIME

LE Pulverized allows consistently high levels of whiteness to be achieved when burning lime. LE’s burning characteristics thus help to ensure that the end product is of the very highest quality.

MEETS STATUTORY EMISSIONS GUIDELINES

The low ash and sulphur content of LE Pulverized makes compliance with statutory emissions an easy task.

UNBEATABLE SECURITY OF SUPPLY

As a source of energy available on our doorstep, Lignite Energy stands out thanks to its unbeatable security of supply, guaranteed by RBB and the production plants it owns. RBB ensures flexible just-in-time delivery with three production sites, two handling terminals in Ulm and Brandenburg an der Havel and our in-house logistics unit.

LOW SPACE REQUIREMENT,

FAST CONVERSION

LEP combustion units stand out thanks to their low space requirements and high control speed. Existing lime kilns running on hard coal, natural gas or petroleum coke can be easily converted to run on LEP. The investment will pay for itself in a few short years.
