Refuse-derived fuels

Energy from waste

Refuse-derived fuels (RDF) are obtained from waste and replace primary fuels in thermal processes. This saves money and reduces CO2 emissions. The original material generally consists of non-recyclable plastics, sorting residue, production residues, biomass and in particular domestic, industrial, commercial and bulky waste.

The waste materials must first be processed in order to:

  • obtain the particle size required by the market,
  • separate metals,
  • separate harmful components (e.g. materials containing chloride),
  • separate a high-calorific fraction if required,
  • ensure further quality properties, where applicable.

Shredding is at the core of RDF processing. Our corresponding machines range from cutting technology to impact crushing and shearing.

The Pre-Shredder (type VSR) or the Rotary Shear (type VR) may be suitable for pre-shredding depending on the properties of the feed material. Metals, minerals, PVC or other materials that are undesirable in refuse-derived fuel (RDF) can then be separated further in purely mechanical process steps.
