Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) The final option before landfill is made from the process of MSW (Municipal Solid Waste). This product is burnt in incinerators to produce electricity and heat.
This is mainly made from household waste. First of all the waste is shredded down to 400mm or smaller if required, we then screened to remove all of the organic material. This is then processed over magnets to remove any metals. It is then baled and wrapped and as with Solid Recovered Fuel, it can either be exported by the boat load or in single articulated lorry loads.
