  • Tire Derived Fuel (TDF)

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

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • What is RDF?

    "Refuse Derived Fuel" comes from Refuse Derived Fuel, literally: fuel from garbage. All kinds of garbage sorted, broken, eddy current in addition to aluminum, magnetic separation of iron, and then broken, wind selection, compression and drying processes made of solid form (cylindrical bar) fuel, referred to as RDF. RDF calorific value is 14595-20016 kJ / kg, much higher than coal (about 10870 kJ ...

  • Hotter than Hungarian Salami – the new VR Series

    In Hungary, our existing customer Gepsystem needed a solution for refining the material pre-shredded by an XR2000 and thus increasing sales. Our newly developed VR Series proved to be the perfect solution. The company is now operating a VR120 and VR160 at full capacity and supplies a Hungarian cement plant with first grade refuse-derived fuels. One of the VR Series' numerous quality features ...

  • SRF – a class of its own

    Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) is still classified as a waste material, not a product, despite the fact it is manufactured to a quality specification and is a resource from which energy can be recovered. Here, UNTHA UK’s alternative fuel production expert Marcus Brew considers the parameters within which SRF must be manufactured, before investigating the arguments for and against SRF being ...

  • Recyclers help to cut huge container imbalance

    The Port of Rotterdam Authority is housed in an office building with probably the most stunning view over Rotterdam. From the top floor, visitors have a breathtaking view on the many barges which are travelling along the busy river, the Erasmus bridge and the skyline of Europe’s main port.  Speaking about the importance of ports and harbours to the recycling industry, Victor Schoenmakers, at ...

  • Tire Shredding: Alternatives to Landfills

    For many reasons, whole tires pose a major problem to landfills. The most obvious is the inefficient use of space. The actual rubber of a tire takes up only a small fraction of the space a tire occupies, and the rest of the space is wasted. A less obvious but far more serious problem is that tires may trap methane gasses when buried with other garbage in landfills. When this happens, the tires ...

  • French SRF manufacturer boosts capacity with UNTHA shredder investment

    Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) manufacturer Environnement 48 has increased the capacity of its waste processing facility in South West France, having invested in its second UNTHA shredder. Already one of the region's most established waste management companies, Environnement 48 hit the headlines in early 2016 when its ...

  • Old Tires Face the Zero Waste Option

    TIRE PILES and tire fires were a prominent environmental burden 20 years ago, but today's options are cleaner with better economic payback. Recovery and use of rubber as an industrial material are far more valuable than use of these feedstocks as fuel. While the price of energy may have doubled in the past few years, the price of virgin rubber compounds has more than tripled - from 30 cents to 95 ...
