Secondary Recovery Fuel (SRF)
Maximising the Energy in Waste
The production of SRF has grown significantly over recent years with both consumption in the UK and the EU rising rapidly. Waste2Resource is working with waste producers to identify materials suitable for SRF production. Waste2Resource also manages the supply chain from waste production to SRF manufacture, through to energy conversion.
The growing concern over climate change aggravated by the burning of fossil fuels and an increased interest in finding alternatives to landfill for the disposal of waste has led to an increase in interest over recovering energy from waste (EfW). EfW is viewed in the UK as both as a sustainable waste management solution and as a means of helping to meet renewable energy targets. Waste can be converted into fuel known as secondary recovery fuels (SRF) (also called solid recovered fuel).
SRF is sourced from selected commercial/industrial and municipal wastes, typically the dry light fraction comprised of non-hazardous waste paper, cardboard, wood and plastic. SRF is a more highly refined fuel product in comparison to Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF). The main outlet markets are industrial users who demand that SRF is produced to a pre-agreed specification.
