One way in which valuables within waste can be utilized is by using it as fuel. Refuse derived fuel (RDF) is a term that applies to materials with a high calorific value (typically around 18 Mega joule per kilogram) that are removed from waste streams. Beneficiaries of this material are cement kilns to power plants.

Waste-to-energy through incineration of waste is an effective way of producing electricity and heat, at the same time getting rid of the possibly hazardous or unrecyclable waste. The waste can be incinerated at specific WtE plants or at plants with permission for co-incineration of waste at biomass boilers or cement kilns. The waste incineration plants are, however, governed by strict emissions regulations.
