Processing of Alternative Fuels (RDF)
RDF is a fuel that is normally produced from waste with high calorific value. The original waste comes from households, industry and commerce and is processed for energy extraction; it is meant for co-incineration plants and replaces standard fuels (e.g. coal) in production plants for cement, power plants or other co-incineration plants.
In order to produce refuse derived fuels with defined qualities and guaranteed specifications, multi-level processing is required that mainly includes the following stages:
- Primary shredding
- Separation of extraneous material (by e.g. air-steam or ballistic separators)
- Secondary shredding
- Finalization (e.g. through screen basket)
Processing of RDF usually takes place in the following RDF value categories:
- low calorific RDF
- average calorific RDF
- high calorific RDF
Lindner shredders and the RDF compact plants demonstrate their high performance particularly in the processing of refuse derived fuels, achieving peak economic and ecological values.
