Weiss A/S - combustion solutions for waste and biomass
Interview with Mr. Bo Johansen, Export Sales Manager, Weiss A/S
Weiss A/S will participate again in Save the Planet 2017. It is specialized in waste and biomass combustion solutions and has experience as a green profile company.  Tell us more about your history.
Weiss A/S has a long experience in building environmentally friendly and high performing combustion boilers. Since 1922, Weiss has specialized in tailor-made turn-key combustion plants. They convert various types of biomass or waste into: hot process water, district heating process.
What is the development of the company through the years and what are the latest products and turn-key solutions you offer to your clients?
Weiss mainly focuses on projecting, designing, and installing combustion plants for bio fuels and waste. Our turn-key plants range from 1 MW to 30 MW in a single boiler line.
We have delivered several Waste-to-energy plants burning waste wood and municipal waste in Norway while in Eastern Europe we are mostly sought for solutions for biomass combustion (i.e. burning residues from food production to deliver process steam).
However, observing the latest developments in Germany concerning sludge being banned as a fertilizer in agriculture from the 1st of January (to protect environment and groundwater) - Weiss has developed a solution that can burn sludge in conjunction with other fuel sources.
Weiss expects that the German ban against using sludge as fertilizer will spread across Europe and combustion plants that can burn e.g. food and industrial waste as well as sludge will be in high demand.
Hitachi Zosen Inova - global leader in energy from waste
Interview with Mr. Andres Kronenberg - Vice President of Marketing & Sales at Hitachi Zosen Inova
Hitachi Zosen Inova is a global leader in energy from waste and will join Save the Planet once again. Please tell us more about HZI solutions and how they ensure clean environment and sustainable waste management?
HZI acts as General Contractor for thermal and biologic energy from waste plants. We deliver complete plants or system solutions for the energy recovery from waste. Our solutions are based on efficient and environmentally sound technology, are thoroughly tested, can be flexibly adapted to user requirements, and cover the entire plant life cycle.
Some of your areas of in-house technology are combustion, anaerobic digestion, flue gas treatment.  Which of your systems will you present in Sofia?
We will represent our complete technology portfolio for thermal and biologic energy recovery from waste. Our incineration plants contain our own first-class technologies for efficient and effective combustion, flue gas treatment and material recovery. They are thoroughly proven and meet all the official requirements and regulation to play an important role in a sustainable and advanced waste management.
HZI’s Kompogas®  anaerobic digestion technology is another important core component for an integrated waste management system by improving both recycling and energy recovery rates. Since the global commitment for renewable energy sources increases continuously, the transformation of bio waste and green waste into biogas, compost and high-class fertilizer becomes more and more important.
Where is your technology implemented and what is your latest project?

Workshop on the Transfer of Waste Management Concepts and Technologies
7 March, Vihren Hall, Congress Center IEC Sofia
The workshop is realized under the project UFOPLAN with the following project partners: adelphi consult GmbH, INTECUS GmbH and FFU – Forschungszentrum für Umweltpolitik der Freien Universität Berlin.
As part of the project, the seminar will take place during the international trade fair „Save The Planet“ in Sofia to discuss the results of the studies with Bulgarian stakeholders of the waste management sector. It is the aim of this workshop to validate the information in the country studies and to discuss potential measures to further develop the Bulgarian waste sector. The workshop will also be attended by stakeholders, particularly companies, of the German waste sector. During it, the participants will have the opportunity to jointly discuss and develop project ideas and assess the potential for cooperation in various fields.
