Due to the modular design of the CRS-BERAHN®, there is no standard size of a recycling plant. Two criteria determine the capacity and therefore the number of modules:

  1. Type and amount of input material per year
  2. Economic feasibility

On basis of the type of input material, we calculate how many modules are necessary to treat your demanded amount per year. This calculation can also carried out “backwards” if you, for instance, demand a certain amount of carbon or oil per year.

With the calculated data, the economic feasibility is determined. Every type of input material requires another minimum-throughput per year in order to operate economic. Generally: the higher the throughput the more profitable the operation. Examples that illustrate this rule you find under performance data.

A recycling plant for rubber waste consists of an indoor area and an outdoor area, whereas parts of the outdoor area are roofed. Mainly the plant comprises:


Filling (roofed outdoor area)

Here, the reaction vessel is filled with the rubber waste. Scrap tires are laid manually into the vessel according to a recommended pattern. The filling with other rubber waste is carried out using filling equipment, e.g. a crane.


Complete Recycling System-BERAHN® (indoor)

Here the actual recycling takes place.


Cooling down (indoor)

The »Cooling« is a separate room to which the reactions vessels are brought directly after a process. There the vessels including their content (carbon, steel) cool down to ambient air temperature.


Emptying, where necessary with separation

This section is for emptying the reaction vessels and sacking of the solid(s). Around the entire area is an enclosure to avoid exposures of carbon dust into the environment. Safety relevant equipment such as an explosion protection system are part of the equipment.

As far as different solids are in the reaction vessels, such as carbon and steel when treating waste tires, the separation will separate those from each other.


Liquid Storage

The liquid storage are oil tanks.


Combined heat and power (CHP)

CHPs utilize the produced BERAHN®-oil and –gas to generate electricity and heat/cold. That creates independence from the public power grid and autarky operation of the plant. The capacity and number of CHPs depends also on customer’s demand. If the customer does not want to sell electricity then the number of CHPs is less since less oil needs to be utilized.

An emergency flare for harmless excess-gas burning is statutory.


Storage Input-Material (outdoor)

When designing the input material storage you need to consider fire regulations.


Storage for BERAHN®-Carbon and steel (roofed outdoor)

Here, you store your solid products.


Our service does not include real estate, factory building, storage areas, social and office areas as well as any infrastructural connections.
