Refuse Derived Fuel – RDF
Refuse Derived Fuel (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.
The Environment Agency defines a RDF as consisting of residual waste that is subject to a contract with an end-user for use as a fuel in an energy from waste facility.
The contract must include the end-users’ technical specifications relating as a minimum the calorific value, the moisture content, the form and quantity of the RDF.
How can i2 help?
At i2, we are accredited to test the following parameters in RDF:
MgO, Na2O, K2O, TiO2, SO3,
P2O5, MnO2, BaO, SrO)
For each of these areas of expertise we can provide:
- One-off samples
- Fast track projects
- Portfolio of on-going projects (site investigation and remediation)
- Large volume throughput projects
- Long term contract work (at set preferential rates)
