Fuel from Waste (RDF, Plastic Oil)

Fuel from Waste (Plastic Oil)

After removing non-combustible material like glass and metal from commercial and industrial Municipal Solid Waste, the balance non-degradable part is shredded. This shredded material acts a raw material to produce RDF which is then used to generate energy at recovery facilities. If found to clear the certain parameters, non-degradable waste with high calorific value is used to replace fossil fuels like coal in cement kilns. In certain cases, they are treated to customise them for such facilities.


Fuel from Waste (RDF)

RDF stands for Refuse Derived Fuel. This fuel is produced from combustible components that the industry calls Municipal Solid Waste – MSW for short. This waste, usually taken from industrial or commercial sites, is shred, dried, baled and then finally burned to produce electricity. Refuse Derived Fuel is a renewable energy source that ensures waste simply isn’t thrown into a landfill and instead, put to good use.
