Refuse-Derived Fuel & Solid Recovered Fuel System
Refuse derived fuels are fuels generated from various types of solid waste such as municipal solid waste (MSW), industrial or commercial waste. Solid recovered fuels are part of refuse derived fuels, which are fuels generated from non-hazardous waste materials in accordance with the European EN 15359 standard. The use of waste-derived fuels offers a win-win situation in terms of reduced fossil energy use and reduced waste pollution and is one of the most popular ways of recycling solid waste.
The Process of Processing Refuse Derived Fuel
- Solid waste is fed into the industrial shredding plant using a belt or feeder to reduce the material to the required size. For most materials, a twin or four-shaft shredder can be used to process the material to the target size in one pass; for piles or bales, a pre-shredding plant can be used to increase production and reduce the wear and tear on the core equipment.
- Use of an iron remover to remove ferrous materials and windrow or other equipment to remove other materials that cannot be burned.
- Pressing the material into pellets or lumps (optional).
- drying the wet fuel (optional).
