Büttner cooperates with NEW eco-tec Verfahrenstechnik: 2 x dryer expertise, one common goal

Krefeld, April 6th, 2022 - Büttner Energie- und Trocknungstechnik GmbH is breaking new ground with NEW eco-tec Verfahrenstechnik GmbH: In a sales cooperation, both companies are pooling their dryer expertise to achieve a common goal. The Krefeld-based dryer and energy plant specialist and the belt dryer supplier from Mühldorf am Inn, Bavaria, will focus, for example, on the advantages that belt dryers open up for the wood-based panel industry and drum dryers for agriculture, chemicals and recycling.

Both partners are cooperating to expand their portfolios on both sides and flexibly meet customer requirements with the appropriate dryer in each case. They are focusing on one possible dryer variant for the wood-based panels industry: the belt dryer. Numerous industries use this technology, which can also be used in wood-based panel plants if sufficient process heat is available.

"The processing of waste or other recycling streams and thus resource efficiency as well as the use of process heat at a low temperature level are enjoying an ever increasing importance. In this respect, we are pleased to add an important component to the overall plant competence of the Siempelkamp Group through our new partnership with NEW eco-tec, in addition to the business area expansion for Büttner", says Andreas Klug, Managing Director of Büttner Energie- und Trocknungstechnik GmbH.

Belt dryers from NEW eco-tec are characterized by their special design and air flow and flexibly dry a wide variety of products, e.g. feedstocks for pellet production, digestate, sludge, various waste fractions, or fuels for biomass heating plants. They are ideally suited for drying sawdust and wood chips, bark and OSB strands. The company from Mühldorf am Inn is considered to be one of the most important manufacturers of compact belt dryers, which also convinces with the USP of containerized modular design – the drying systems are integrated into containers that plant operators can place in a modular system. This means that the belt dryers can not only be expanded as required, they can also be transported very easily and, if necessary, the location can also be changed with little effort. A common denominator with Siempelkamp stands out in the commitment to make rapidly regenerating raw materials, woody plants from short-rotation plantations (SRP) or recycling streams usable for woodbased panel production.

"We have made it our business to utilize, valorize and utilize biomass, recyclables and waste in a meaningful way. That's why we develop sustainable process technology individually adapted to the specifications and wishes of our customers," says Sebastian Bergler, Managing Director of NEW eco-tec.

Two drying specialists are thus breaking promising new ground. Despite the challenges posed by coronarelated travel restrictions, the first projects have been initiated. "The sales teams of both companies are already working together on promising projects from both the wood-based panel industry and the biomass and waste recycling sectors. There is mutual demand for drying technology in this regard, and in addition, projects in which belt and drum dryers can be combined are also increasingly coming into
