BLUE RIVER RECYCLING
Fuelling the Future.
Blue River Beteiligungs GmbH is a managing company founded by the shareholders of industry-wide renowned consulting firm MVW Lechtenberg & Partner with the aim to produce alternative fuel pellets for energy-intensive industries.
Joined by local partners, we manufacture high-calorific pellets from non-recyclable mixed plastic wastes in several plants in Germany. The pellets serve as a substitute for fossil fuels, such as coal, in the cement, lime, and steel industry.
By pelleting the waste materials, higher substitution quotes in the respective industries can be achieved. This allows the cement industry, for example, to fully avoid the use of fossil fuels. Additionally, considerable amounts of CO2 emissions are saved for sea transport due to the higher bulk density. Thereby, we enable our customers to achieve their ambitious CO2 savings goals.
We offer a sustainable solution to both the global waste management issue as well as the increasing demand for environmentally responsible fuels in various industries, worldwide.
The first Blue River Recycling plant is realized near the river Ems in Papenburg, Germany, at the site of BERA port terminal, where alternative fuels have been transshipped since 2004.
In cooperation with Nehlsen AG as a local partner, one of the five leading waste management companies in Germany, non-recyclable mixed plastics will be used for the production of environmentally responsible alternative fuel pellets.
The plant's production capacity will achieve up to 100,000 tonnes of pellets annually. Production is scheduled to start in January 2021.
