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

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

Alternative Fuel Technologies for the Cement Industry

Due to the continuing energy cost fluctuations and the discussions on the sustainable protection of resources the cement industry has hardly enabled to reduce its entire energy and power demand as a result of technical optimisation of its cement production. With the rising energy prices, people have successively used petroleum and coal as the main fuel for cement production. Later, people began to explore the use of waste oil and tires. Nowadays, as people pay more and more attention to reducing carbon emissions, the waste-to-fuel technology has become more and more mature, and many cement kilns have begun to use municipal solid waste or industrial and commercial waste as alternative fuels.Substituting Coal and Petcoke with Alternative fuelsCoal and petcoke, two of the most carbon-intensive fuels, are typically used to heat cement kilns.
