Mechanical activation is a physical process that does not require chemical reagents. The physical process is carried out in mechanical activators. The mechanical activation process changes the structure of materials.
Although the supplied energy is distinctly lower than the energy necessary for size reduction of the processed material, it nonetheless, induces both structural and superficial changes.
Benefits resulting from the application of activation by means of the method of Electrostatic Mechanical Disintegration of Particles ('EMDP') can be grouped into three main categories: ecological, economic and technological.
The economic benefits of using the mechanical activation process reduces capital costs of power plants, because of lower ash storage costs and being able to sell Flubet® as an inexpensive construction material. Ecological benefits include reduction of wastes shipped to industrial waste lagoons. Technological benefits improve the quality of construction materials (strength, resistance to frost, watertightness). The EMDP activators are characterized by high reliability, automatic operating mode, consistent quality and stability of the manufactured product.
