  • Sample Preparation for Refuse Derived Fuels

    Plastic, wood and shredded waste, are in times of rising crude oil prices very interesting additions to the classic fuels. Especially in the cement industry, the energy rich fractions from conditioning processes are readily burned along. Important here is the analytical evaluation of the materials. Refuse derived fuels: Plastic, wood and shredded waste: Here are some examples of more or less well ...

  • Investigation on the spontaneous combustion of refuse-derived fuels

    Refuse-derived fuel (RDF), a high-caloric material, is used by various combustion processes, such as power plants, as alternative fuel. Several explosion accidents, however, possibly initiated by the spontaneous combustion of stored RDF, have been reported in Japan. Therefore the spontaneous combustion of RDF prepared from domestic garbage was investigated using chemiluminescence. RDF samples ...

  • The Waste Industry: Refuse Derived Fuel Hits a New Level

    The Environment Agency published the final data up to the end of December 2014 in February. It shows that the overall tonnage of RDF sent overseas throughout the year topped 2,373,611 tonnes. The figures confirm the rapid growth in demand for RDF from operators in the UK from European energy from waste facilities, with 2014 continuing the trend of increasing exports to facilities overseas. RDF is ...

  • 4.5 MWe Refuse Derived Fuel to Energy Plant Case Study

    This 4.5 MWe Biomass Power Plant is one of the turnkey products of Biomass Power. The plant has a capacity of 24 MW thermal and rated at 4.5 MWe producing 35,476MWh of green electricity per year, 100% of which is exported to the grid. The fuel used is segregated biomass from a commercial and industrial waste collection business. The fuel is produced by removing some of the recyclable material ...

  • Conception of a Refuse-Derived Fuel (RDF) incineration plant and its environmental benefit

    Since landfill ban was realised in July 2009 in Germany, wastes that have a high and middle calorific value must be incinerated. Fossil fuels like oil and coal for the generation of electricity and/or heat can be substituted, so that approximately 4 million tons of CO2 could be avoided. Waste incineration is a possible partial solution for avoiding worst ...

  • What does Brexit mean for demand of UK Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF)?

    Demand for UK refuse derived fuel (RDF) exports to fill up incinerator capacity in Europe is likely to continue even if Britain leaves the European Union in June, waste experts have suggested. The market for the export of UK waste to the mainland, especially the Netherlands, is to be viewed as one which has a high degree of certainty going forward: Brexit or no Brexit. The export of UK ...

    Tire derived fuel (TDF) is a fuel derived from waste tires of all kinds. TDF is a major use for scrap or waste ...

  • Thermal behaviour study of senakin coal and Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) blends during pyrolysis using thermogravimetric analysis

    Preliminary Thermogravimetric (TG) studies of pyrolysed Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF)–coal blends (20 to 80%) at various heating rates, 20, 40, 60 °C•min–1 have been performed to develop an efficient locally sourced renewable solid fuel. The characteristics of the coal/RDF blends followed those of the parent fuels in additive manner. Among the tested blends, 50:50 blends showed the optimum blend ...

  • Study Charts a Future for Waste-Derived Fuels

    Pointers to possible future EU policy initiatives to give co-incineration facilities burning waste-derived fuels a strategic role in waste management have emerged in a study for the European Commission.1 The report suggests a policy focus on promoting source separation of municipal wastes, active discouragement of mass burn incinerators, and a levelling of the regulatory playing-field for ...

  • KAB - Polaris 2800 - Polaris Single-Shaft Shredder from Lindner optimizes the one-step processing of refuse-derived fuel - Case Study

    The Polaris 2200 and 2800 are two new single-shaft shredders from Lindner that have been optimized for the cost-efficient, single-step shredding of untreated household refuse as well as industrial and commercial waste. A typical application area is the processing of refuse-derived fuel (RDF) that is used instead of fossil fuels in calciners of cement factories or in thermal power plants. Because ...

  • Feasibility of landfill gas as a liquefied natural gas fuel source for refuse trucks

    The purpose of this paper is to develop a methodology to evaluate the feasibility of using landfill gas (LFG) as a liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel source for heavy-duty refuse trucks operating on landfills. Using LFG as a vehicle fuel can make the landfills more self-sustaining, reduce their dependence on fossil fuels, and reduce emissions and greenhouse gases. Acrion Technologies Inc. in ...

  • Fans and fuel

    One of the fun things about researching articles is how you can end up in a totally different place than where you started. A few weeks ago, I was working on a story for the October issue of HDT on oil and coolant analysis. That led to what I'm going to talk about today, which is fans and fuel economy. It started out when I was talking to Mike Tourville with Evans, which makes a waterless ...

  • Ros Roca brings silence to the refuse industry

    Increasing demands for higher productivity, lower noise and reduced emissions call for totally new approaches when it comes to designing Refuse Trucks. Manufacturers and fleet operators are already under extreme pressure to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emission. Partly driven by new legislation including CO2 penalty, partly driven by increasing fuel prices and partly driven by the constantly ...

  • Properties and Behavior of Fuels

    Fuel contaminants are generally nonhalogenated. Information presented for nonhalogenated VOCs and nonhalogenated SVOCs may also be appropriate for many of the fuel contaminants presented in this subsection. Contamination by fuel contaminants in the unsaturated zone exists in four phases: vapor in the pore spaces; sorbed to subsurface solids; dissolved in water; or as NAPL. The nature and extent ...

  • Chemical exergy calculations for petroleum and petroleum–derived liquid fractions

    This work focused on the chemical exergy calculation methods that can be applied to petroleum and petroleum–derived liquid fuels. The importance of thermodynamic data in the calculation of chemical exergies, and the limitations due to the absence of this kind of data to the methods to be applied, were also determined in this work. Chemical exergy values were calculated for some petroleum derived ...

  • Evaluation of Tire Derived Rubber Particles for Biofiltration Media

    ABSTRACTCurrently, on average, one tire is discarded in the U.S. for every man woman and child every year. While the reuse market for used tires has increased over the years to approximately 75%, there are still an estimated 2-3 billion used tires stockpiled in the U.S. Finding economical and sustainable end uses for this tire material is an ongoing challenge to environmental engineers and ...
