Waste to Fuel

What is RDF & SRF?

Using waste that cannot be recycled as an energy source is one way to reduce the amount that is sent to landfill.

Known as refuse derived fuel (RDF) or solid recovered fuel (SRF), waste is first processed and then transported to energy from waste plants and cement kilns in the UK and Europe.

Recover with Clarity

What is refuse derived fuel?

Refuse derived fuel (RDF) is produced from domestic and business waste, which includes biodegradable material as well as plastics. Non-combustible materials such as glass and metals are removed, and the residual material is then shredded. Refuse derived fuel is used to generate energy at recovery facilities, many of them in Europe where they produce electricity and hot water for communal heating systems.

What is solid recovered fuel?

Solid recovered fuel (SRF) is a high-quality alternative to fossil fuel and is produced from mainly commercial waste including paper, card, wood, textiles and plastic.

Solid recovered fuel has gone through additional processing to improve the quality and value. It has a higher calorific value than RDF and is used in facilities such as cement kilns.
