Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) is produced from combustible components of municipal solid waste (MSW).
The waste is shredded, dried and baled and then burned to produce electricity, thereby making good use of waste that otherwise might have ended up in landfill.
One of the core process steps of handling RDF is drying, which allows to reduce the level of water in the fuel and at the same time increasing the heating value of the product.
Promill proven Single Pass Drum design is ideal for this challenging application: Drying of classified particles without glass, steel or plastic.
To improve the over sustainability of the process, bio gas is often used as an energy source for the dryer.
