Lingenheld invests in green technology
The commitment to sustainability of the Lingenheld Group manifests itself in a variety of different ways. The company from the Alsace region invested in electric cars for its employees, for example, and fully offsets its CO₂ emissions by planting trees. In addition to road construction, Lingenheld also offers different specialised services, such as renovating buildings and terrain that is contaminated with harmful substances.
The company is also moving forward in its asphalt production division and invests in environmentally friendly recycling technology from Benninghoven: Lingenheld has purchased an asphalt mixing plant type TBA 4000 with hot-gas generator. The leading recycling technology in the market can turn up to 90 +X % of reclaimed asphalt into new asphaltic mixture while reducing emissions, in particular total carbon (TC). To also meet the high requirements for low-dust operation, a powerful Benninghoven filter system with an output of 90,000 Nm³/h removes the majority of the generated dust.
In addition, the TBA 4000 substantially increases the performance. The 320 t of asphalt that Lingenfeld can now produce and deliver per hour are double of what the old plant was capable of. The 130 t hot bin section and the 341 t loading silo with four bins (plus 13 t direct loading) are accordingly large, allowing Lingenheld to store and supply large and small quantities of asphalt. The option of implementing a variety of different recipes ensures numerous feed options. Additives, granulate and adhesives can be dosed directly into the mixing process. This means that nothing stands in the way of achieving the target of producing 100,000 t of all types of high-quality asphaltic mixture per year.
