Alternative Fuel Award

In 2018, MVW Lechtenberg & Partner has presented the (AFA Award) for the first time. The Alternative Fuel Award is established by MVW Lechtenberg & Partner to encourage the acceptance of the ecological responsibility on both social and individual levels, and to identify role models in the field of alternative fuels, a field which, aside from its contribution to the economic development, has the greatest contribution to the protection of our environment.

The award is to be presented to companies, cities, institutions and individuals promoting the idea of sustainable alternative fuel’s production and use.

The AFA winners in 2018 were:

  • Reliance Group, Egypt for the project "Waste Treatment Plants in Port Said & Isamailia". Karim Elsabee has accepted the 1st AFA on behalf of Reliance Group.
  • Cimpor / Intercement Souselas Plant, Portugal for the project "Alternative Fuel Dryer at Souselas Plant". Sandro Conceicao has accepted the 2nd AFA on behalf of Cimpor Souselas Plant.
  • Interwaste, South Africa for the presented case study "Producing Alternative Fuels for the Cement Industry". Mike Nicholls has accepted the 3rd AFA on behalf of Interwaste.
  • An honorary AFA was presented to BioEnergy, Egypt for the project "Waste, Fuelling the Future of Pyroprocess".
  • An honorary AFA was presented to Qena Cement, Egypt for the project "Multi-fuel Handling Facility for Various Types of Alternative Fuels".

The descriptions of each winning project will be published in the coming issues of the Co-Processing Magazine.
