Waste as energy source in EU action plan for the circular economy

Dace Arina, Ruta Bendere

Abstract


Investigations presents that changes in municipal solid waste composition and properties correlates with the size and density of municipal solid waste type, that mechanical pre-treatment including separation by weight and size can be useful for preparation of Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) material and Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) used for energy recovery. The authors determined the parameters of separated components of coarse fraction (lower heating value, moisture, ash content, carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen, sulphur, chlorine, metals), and assess their viability for the preparation of alternative fuel.
