Refuse Derived Fuels
Operation & Application: Refuse Derived Fuel consists largely of combustible components of such wastes, as non recycable plastics. paper cardboard, labels, and other corrugative materials. These fractions are separated by different processing steps, such as screening, air classification, ballistic separation, separation of ferrous and non ferrous materials, glass, stones and other foreign materials and shredding into a uniform grain size, in order to produce a homogeneous material which can be used as substitute for fossil fuels in e.g. cement plants, lime plants, coal fired power plants or as reduction Agent in Steel Furnaces. RDF can be also further specified into e.g. tyre derived fuels (TDF) from used tires, or solid recovered fuels (SRF).
