Clinker is the solid residue remaining at the bottom of incinerator chambers once waste combustion is completed. It is comprised mainly of ashes, 5 to 10% miscellaneous non-combustible materials (ferrous and non-ferrous metals, glass, etc.) and unburnt materials (certain types of paper found in clinker are still legible).
At Vauché, we have for over ten years been creating modernised clinker treatment centers.
Shown opposite, one of our first centers created on the edge of the Persian Gulf, in Doha, QATAR, to be precise.
This center, which also processes household refuse, has a tonnage capacity of close to 600 000 T/year.
