How Can MSW Be Converted into High Calorific Value Alternative Fuels?How Can MSW Be Converted into High Calorific Value Alternative Fuels?

Recently, many customers have inquired whether it is possible to convert all MSW (Municipal Solid Waste) into high calorific value RDF? Here, it should be explained that in the field of MSW classification, many countries and regions currently do not reach the level of complete segmentation. MSW is still mixed with a large amount of kitchen waste, as well as low calorific value non combustible materials such as porcelain chips and stones. It is impossible to make such materials into high calorific value alternative fuels. Therefore, before MSW can be converted into alternative fuels, a series of shredding and screening equipment must be used to separate the non combustible materials inside, and the remaining combustible materials can be processed into high calorific alternative fuels RDF/SRF.The specific disposal process is as follows: MSW is transported to the MSW disposal center through specialized transportation vehicles, first dumped into the waste storage pit in the disposal center, and then collected

Fuel Production From Household WasteFuel Production From Household Waste

In recent years, the popular term "RDF" in the field of solid waste refers to waste derived fuels, and most environmentalists have also turned their attention to the field of household waste. The composition of household waste we usually refer to is a mixture of wet waste and dry waste, while in the preparation of fuel for household waste, it is best to make a distinction based on current incineration needs. Frontend differentiation can reduce the investment cost of pre-treatment production lines while also improving the calorific value of materials. In the field of incineration, calorific value is a sensitive term. In fact, this process flow is not complicated. Our designed process principles have three positioning points: "impurity removal, reusable selection, and combustible compression". These three process points constitute the equipment solutions applicable in the current field of solid waste disposal. The impurity removal we refer to can be understood as the purification of household waste. There will

How Much does a RDF Plant Cost?How Much does a RDF Plant Cost?

Alternative fuel RDF (refuse derived fuel) or solid secondary fuel is a fuel obtained from waste. RDF contains high-calorie waste components such as plastic, paper, cardboard, textiles, rubber, leather, wood, etc.RDF can be used as main or supplementary fuel in furnaces of cement plants, thermal power plants, metallurgical furnaces. The calculations performed showed the expediency of replacing gas or coal with RDF in the production of cement.The production of cement requires significant energy costs due to the need to maintain the temperature in cement kilns above 2000°C. For each ton of cement produced, typically 60-130 kg of fuel oil, or its equivalent (natural gas, coal), and about 105 kWh of electricity are required. On average, energy, fuel and electricity costs account for up to 40 percent of cement manufacturing costs. Therefore, it is advisable to use alternative fuels obtained from waste in production processes in order to reduce the use of traditional fuels and raw materials by replacing them with

Waste Tire as an Alternative Fuel of Cement Production ProcessWaste Tire as an Alternative Fuel of Cement Production Process

Conventional fuels like hard coal and lignite that are commonly used fuels in cement production have high specific CO2 emission values (Hard coal: ~95 kg CO2/GJ; Lignite: ~98 kg CO2/GJ). Consequently, substituting these with other fuels having lower specific emssion values (e.g. fuel oil or natural gas) or with other sources that can satisfy the thermal demand of the processes is an effective way of reducing CO2 emissons. Principally, in cement kilns conventional fossil fuels can be substituted up to 100% by alternative fuels. Nevertheless, there are certain technical limitations like the calorific value, the moisture content, and the content of side products like trace elements or chlorine. The calorific value of most organic material is comparatively low (10 – 18 GJ/t). For the main firing of the cement kiln an average calorific value of at least 20-22 GJ/t is required, meaning that high calorific alternative fuels are mostly used in the main firing. Waste tyres can be used as a fuel in cement kilns. Waste

Fuel Processing for RDF, TDF and SRFFuel Processing for RDF, TDF and SRF

Since the beginning of the 21st century, more and more waste has been generated. In order to cope with the threat to the environment caused by the increase in waste, people have begun to use waste as fuel that can be burned in boilers for power generation or heating. We divide the fuel from waste into RDF, TDF, SRF according to different components and processing method of the waste. RDF(Refuse-derived fuel) is a fuel produced by sorting and shredding combustible materials contained in municipal solid waste (MSW) and industrial waste. Compared to fossil fuels, RDF is more affordable, abundant, and environmentally friendly. SRF(Solid Recovered Fuel) is a fuel produced by drying, filtering, and shredding solid waste, It is usually produced to meet the standards in Europe. The EN 15359 document gives the specifications for classifying SRF. Unlike RDF, SRF is a more refined material that is slightly more efficient than RDF, though it takes a more advanced process to make the fuel. TDF(Tire-derived fuel) is a

Co-processing Waste in Cement Industry

The problem of waste is one of the most urgent on the world agenda, According to the World Bank, the world generates 2.01 billion tonnes of waste every year, with at least 33 percent of that—extremely conservatively—not managed in an environmentally safe manner. Therefore, the most important task is to clear the waste and create a system that will allow separating waste, competently managing its flows, processing it and without harm to nature. Turning the so-called “tailings” into cement, which remain at the waste sorting complexes after the extraction of all useful recyclable materials, is one of the most environmentally friendly and effective solutions to this problem. The use of alternative fuels from municipal solid waste (MSW) in cement production will help global achieve environmental goals.Waste Disposal in the Production of CementLimestone, clay and thermal energy are needed to make cement. The cost of the latter is 30% of all production costs. The cement industry uses a variety of fossil fuels to

Industrial Shredder for Alternative FuelsIndustrial Shredder for Alternative Fuels

Waste is a stable and profitable energy source. Material that has been used and disposed of can be turned into energy-efficient fuel to replace or complement other sources of energy in various applications. Waste fuels, often referred to as “alternative fuels,” are generally produced from municipal solid waste and commercial and industrial waste. Common types of alternative fuels are refuse-derived fuel (RDF) and solid recovered fuel (SRF). There is enormous potential in alternative fuels. They eliminate waste and limit the purchase of black energy sources. Removing impurities and substances with low energy content allows higher-quality waste fuel to be produced. An efficient and properly designed production process increases the calorific value of the waste fuel and ensures that the fuel is optimal for the application. This has a considerable positive impact on production and finances. We manufacture industrial waste shredders and provide maintenance and professional services for companies producing or

Industrial Shredder for Cement Industry

Cement production is an extremely energy-intensive process that emits approx. 8% of the world’s CO2. There are huge economic and environmental benefits to be made by replacing fossil fuels with alternative fuels made from waste. Cement producers utilizing alternative fuels such as refuse-derived fuel (RDF) and solid recovered fuel (SRF) can gain a substantial competitive edge. In many cases, however, input waste streams contain diverse materials not suitable for co-processing in the cement kiln. A well-designed alternative fuel production process ensures the best quality. To maximize energy production with the lowest possible emissions, a homogeneous grain size, high calorific value, controlled material composition, removal of fines, low chloride and a stable humidity content are a must. Opening waste bags and reducing the size of waste by pre-shredding ensures that unwanted items can be screened and separated from the process. Later in the process, when you have achieved an optimal material content for the
