Refuse-derived fuel (RDF) or solid recovered fuel / specified recovered fuel (SRF) is a fuel produced by shredding and dehydrating solid waste (MSW) with a Waste converter technology. RDF consists largely of combustible components of municipal waste such as plastics and biodegradable waste.
Refuse derived fuel is made from domestic waste which includes biodegradable material as well as plastics, and has a lower calorific value than solid recovered fuel. Refuse derived fuel is used in combined heat and power facilities, many of them in Europe where they produce electricity and hot water for communal heating systems in the local area.
Compared to landfilling, the lower carbon emissions resulting from this approach to processing waste far outweigh the emissions associated with transporting the reclaimed fuel.
APPK is the largest producer of solid recovered fuel and refuse derived fuel in the country. We are able to use our network of facilities and ports to supply this material to customers in Thailand and other parts of ASIA. We are experienced in the production, transport and testing of these products and have the ability to tailor these products to individual customer needs.
