Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) Harnessing the Power in Waste
The preparation and export of RDF has seen significant growth in recent years due to the lack of UK energy from waste capacity. Waste2Resource are working with waste producers to advise on potential export routes, waste presentation and logistics.
The Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) process takes combustible components of municipal solid waste (MSW) that are unsuitable for traditional recycling and shreds, dries and bales them. These are then burnt for electricity, thereby producing a replacement for fossil fuels such as coal or oil. The RDF process makes use of waste that would otherwise be sent to landfill.
RDF is a coarse grade, less refined material than SRF, sourced from selected commercial/industrial and municipal wastes. The specification is broader than SRF in relation to moisture content, calorific value and particulate size. The main outlet markets are large energy from waste plants in mainland Europe.
