i2 Analytical UKAS Accredited for Waste to Energy Testing – RDF, SRF & Biomass!
We are pleased to announce that i2 have obtained UKAS accreditation for RDF/SRF/Biomass testing.
What is Waste to Energy?
With the disposal to landfill now very much the not preferred option, Waste to Energy is the process to encourage the re-use of waste for generating energy in the form of electricity and/or heat from the treatment of waste, or the processing of waste into a fuel source.
With the emphasis very much on renewable energy sources, RDF/SRF/Biomass ensures that waste isn’t thrown into landfill sites and instead put to good use.
How can i2 help?
i2’s solid fuels testing facility has been specially configured to meet the high standards demanded by the energy from waste industry, whilst maintaining the flexibility that supports new innovations in this technologically demanding market.
What is Refuse-derived fuel (RDF)?
RDF mainly consists of bio-degradable materials such as paper cardboard, labels and other corrugates materials, as well as non-recyclable plastics. Any non-combustible materials such as glass and metals are removed and shredded.
What is Solid Recovered Fuels (SRF)?
SRF is a high quality fuel produced by shredding and dehydrating solid waste mainly consisting of combustible components of Municipal Solid Waste (SRF). SRF is mainly produced from commercial waste including paper, card, wood, textiles and plastic.
What is Biomass?
Biomass fuels are derived from renewal sources such as wood chips, waste materials and plants.
For RDF/SRF/Biomass, our UKAS accreditation includes testing for; Sulphur/Chlorine/Fluorine/Bromine, Calorific Value, Moisture Content, Biomass Content, Ash Content, Metals and Metal Oxides.
