Waste Sorting - Refuse Derived Fuel - Waste and Recycling - Material Recycling
TITECH technology has long been utilised in many plants across Europe to produce an RDF material from different waste streams according to the specific needs of the end users. The main purpose of this area of work is to ensure that the RDF has very low chlorine content, typically below 0.7% in weight. TITECH is able to achieve this by either selecting the ‘good’ material (‘positive sorting’) or by ejecting the ‘bad’ material from the stream, such as small PVC parts (‘negative sorting’).
Reference plant – Neuss, Germany
Neuss was the first plant in Germany to sort out RDF with a constant chlorine content of less than 0.5% from a household waste input. Since being sorted by TITECH units, the RDF material has been used as an alternative fuel at the same cement kiln and power plant since the beginning of the production.
