Power from waste
One of the newest and most innovative ways to recycle household and commercial waste is to process it and turn it in to a usable fuel source, in order to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. Refuse derived fuel, or solid recovered fuel as it sometimes referred to, processes waste products that would otherwise be sent to a landfill and generates a combustible power source.
RDF processing equipment
RG Recycling specialises in refuse collection, the screening and separation of waste materials and the manufacturing process which converts this waste into a useable feed stock which can then be transferred to plants to burn for fuel. Once the waste is delivered to the processing plant, it must then be screened and separated-using machines which RG Recycling can provide- in order to remove non-combustible materials like glass and metal.
These products are recycled in the usual way, whilst the remaining waste mix of plastics and biodegradable substances is mechanically processed at the RDF processing facility, using heat or biological treatments in a waste converter in order to remove harmful pollutants and create the finished feed stock. This is the pulverised refuse derived fuel source.
Solid recovered fuel
This fuel is then transported to a variety of plants where it can be used to generate electricity, or mixed with coal and incinerated in more traditional power stations. It can also be used in pyrolysis plants or gasification systems.
Refuse derived fuel processing and trading solutions
If you have a refuse derived fuel plant and are looking to expand or need some new equipment, then get in touch with our expert staff at RG Recycling. Or, if you have large amounts of waste you need to get rid of but don't want to pay the landfill costs, get in touch with us and we can process that waste into a usable fuel source. We take materials and waste from all sources, in all types for processing, whether it is loose or baled, domestic waste or industrial. It might come from a materials recovery facility, or from the construction industry. It doesn't matter where it's from, we'll make good use of it in creating refuse derived fuel.
