During the most recent decades the utilization of (otherwise) waste materials and biomass as alternative fuels in the cement industry and power plants showed great growth figures. However, the low heat values of alternative fuels require larger handling and storage systems that are more flexible. This article shows, how these materials can be handled.

Maptek has released I-Site Drive to provide mines, quarries and industrial operations with a faster, more accurate system for frequent stockpile volume reporting. I-Site Drive links the laser scanner directly with GPS to generate the stockpile profile as it is circumnavigated. The volume is accurately calculated without estimating or inferring from unknown points.
Crushing & Mining Equipment (CME) has just received the first Trackstack 10342T tracked stockpiler into Australia. The 13042T is supposed to be the largest ‘mid-mount’ tracked stockpiler on the market. It can create stockpiles in excess of 15 metres (50’) in height.
Superior Industries, Inc., says it manufactures the highest capacity telescoping radial stacker on the planet. Measuring 72 in (1.8 m) wide by 190 ft (58 m) long, the machine can stockpile aggregates and other bulk material at rates up to 5000 t/h.
Five years after the delivery of a first bridge scraper for the cement plant at Sobradinho, Schade was able to carry out another contract by the Brazilian cement producer Ciplan Cimento Planalto S/A: Schade delivers a circular column equipped spreader with a flow rate of 1800 t/h (max 2000 t/h) and a 23 m beam as well as a belt width of 1400 mm.
