Refuse Derived Fuel for the cement industry: the sorting challenge

Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) and the more refined Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) are produced from MSW after recyclable materials have been removed. It is a renewable fuel, easy to transport and store, with a high calorific value, stable combustion, low secondary pollution, and low carbon emissions. As the cement industry moves towards decarbonization, driven by legislation and greater environmental awareness among the public, it has turned to RDF as an alternative to fossil fuels. RDF also has the environmental advantage of redirecting the unrecyclable materials from MSW away from landfill, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and conserving landfill space.
