Fuels from refined lignite
The Schwarze Pumpe refining plant, rich in tradition is situated on the border of Brandenburg and Saxony. Here, selected run-of-mine lignite from the Lusatian opencast mines is blended to create modern fuels. During refining the calorific value is increased and the handling characteristics are enhanced.
The run-of-mine lignite is pre-processed, dried and formed or milled respectively. In this way we produce products like briquettes and pulverised lignite. In these forms lignite can be used efficiently and in an environmentally friendly way in households, district heating plants or industry to produce electricity and heat.
The Lusatian REKORD briquette
The lignite briquette is a fuel classic which is in vogue. When used in fireplaces or cockle stoves it creates cosy warmth in the home. According to their use we produce lignite briquettes in various shapes and offer them packed, bundled or in bulk. The fuel with a low sulphur and ash content is not only used in homes. Commercial and industrial firing plants deploy them as well.
Our briquettes are now also within Germany available online:
Pulverized lignite LignoPlus
For the production of LignoPlus we use higher quality lignite, dried in cogeneration and milled. A fine grained, free-flowing and efficient combustible is achieved in this manner. It is mainly used in heat intensive industries. Here LignoPlus can replace oil and gas, as it is much more cost effective than import-dependent fuels. In addition, lignite as a domestic resource has a stable price and offers security of supply.
