Fly Ash - The IVU Process
Based on more than 10 years of research and approximately
10,000 experiments Dipl.-Ing. K. Schorch, Managing Director of the
IVU mbH, Erfurt, Germany, developed the DISPERSOPT-FAR
PROCESS which turns Fly Ash
from, for example, coal-fired power stations into an eluation proof,
ecologically and commercially viable, cementlike, building material.
Dangerous substances included in the Fly
Ash, or in an added by-mix,
are immobilised during the hardening process.
In 1995 the DISPERSOPT-FAR PROCESS was patented
and in 1996 the first IVU-FAR plant started operation at a site
near Leipzig. It is in full commercial production and has produced
several 100,000 tonnes of DISPERGAT since the beginning.
In 2000 a second FAR plant, incorporating many
innovations, will commence production. The output capacity will
be approximately 300,000 tonnes per an-num. The investment of DM
13.00 million needed to build the plant is expected to be recouped
in only 3 years, or less!
By using the DISPERSOPT process to create DISPERGAT,
a remarkable material is made available for the building trade,
it can overcome serious noxious waste problems, can provide additives
to enable clay preparation processes in the brick and cement industries
to be speeded up considerably and it can be used as a desulphurisation
sorbent. All at very viable commercial levels. New uses for DISPERGAT
are being discovered all the time.
