Today, the production of refuse derived fuel is an integral part of waste handling.
The need to extract energy from waste such as RDF makes RDF a very important
High calorific factions of commercial waste, production residue, packaging waste, bulky waste and industrial waste can be processed in to refuse derived fuels.
Potential Users of RDF
• Fuel-intensive industries for power, heat or both
• Cement factories, textile mills, sugar producers, steel producers
• Incinerators for power, heat or both
• Co-firing with coal at power stations
• Co-firing with other biomass fuels
• Advanced Thermal Treatments such as gasification or pyrolysis
Depending on its quality, this can be used in industrial furnaces, cement plants, and power plants.
AK Enterprises has a burning interest in refuse derived fuels (RDF). Refuse derived fuels are being used as a cost effective alternative to traditional solid fuels, were industries like the cement industry choosing RDF as a co-firing fuel along side coal (up to 40 : 60, RDF : COAL).
1 tonne of coal attaining the minimum Calorific Value of 4200 can be achieved by the burning of 1.2 tonnes of RDF (where RDF having Calorific values of 3500).
As a fuel, RDF has roughly one-half the Btu value of the same weight of coal. RDF also has a higher ash and chloride content, and lower sulphur content than hard coal.
