RDF Fuel Pellets Process
- CLASSIFYING PROCESS
- Approximately 25% of Municipal Solid Waste is separated
resulting in recyclable components such as:
- Approximately 65% of Municipal Solid Waste is separated
into a combustible material to enable further formation into high energy
producing (RDF) Fuel Pellets. Fly Ash from the combustion of the RDF Pellets
may be converted into concrete products.
- Enables return of "clean" acceptable
non-combustible material to EPA approved non-hazardous landfills (7%) resulting
in extension of existing EPA approved landfill areas resulting in:
- Considerable savings in equipment and fuel while
utilizing manpower more effectively.
- Eliminating the need for and travel to Transfer
- Reducing travel to Landfills by 90%
- BURN "ON DEMAND"
- Pellets (RDF fuel) are stored for transporting to energy
generating operations and "BURNED" as required and not necessarily to
meet convenience of Mass Burn Incineration which requires greater floor space
for daily storage of waste resulting in odors.
- Eliminate the need to exhaust potential energy to
atmosphere during Low or "Non-Demand" periods by creating desired
Steam/Electric Energy as is required.
- The separated (classified) combustible Municipal Solid
Waste material can be combined with higher BTU additives, such as Ohio (high
sulfur) Coal and vehicle tire stock, resulting in:
- An RDF Fuel having greater heat value;
- Minimizing additional disposal requirements;
- Assisting in employment continuity;
- Accomplishing above with equipment and a component
system which meets EPA regulation standards.
- COMPOSITION OF RDF FUEL PELLETS
- 7500 TO 8500 BTU/lb. Heat Value
- Low sulphur content (0.2%)
- Resultant Ash acceptable to EPA approved non-hazardous
landfills or utilize in other recycled products and processes.
