Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Recycling - Waste and Recycling - Landfill

During recent years, the importance of alternative energy sources has become increasingly apparent. With the Eldan Recycling System for MSW (Municipal Solid Waste), you can turn loose, baled or bagged waste like non-recyclable plastics, paper cardboard, mattresses, carpets, etc. into energy in the form of RDF (Residual Derived Fuel). RDF exploits the energy content of the traditional household waste (MSW) to substitute traditional fuels, thus posing an alternative that is attractive both environmentally and economically. Before the waste can be used as fuel however, it must be sorted and volume reduced into a homogenous fraction size of e.g. up to 50mm / 2 in. By downsizing the waste in the MSW Recycling System, liberated ferrous metals, heavy materials (stone, brick, iron) and wet material with low calorific value (smaller than 13MJ/kg) can be removed. The final product (approx. 75% of input material) is RDF with a high calorific value at approx. 26-28 MJ/kg, perfect as fuel ... ...
