Ron Hull Jnr's Zero Waste To Landfill Division can supply environmentally conscious companies looking for energy alternatives to fossil fuels with a high quality secondary fuel solution - Refuse Derived Fuel - RDF (also called SRF, or Solid Recovered Fuel).
RDF flock (or fluff) is RDF that is shredded to less than 30mm pieces and is in demand for use as a fossil fuel replacement by power generation companies and cement companies in particular. RDF is an excellent substitute for gas, coal and oil as it produces lower CO2 emissions as well as helping and respecting the environment by reducing reliance on our rapidly depleting natural fuels.
RDF is made up of general waste items such as cardboard, paper, LDPE films, cloth, rubber/tyres, textiles, etc. that would be normally diverted to costly and disappearing landfill sites. All metals, glass and rigid plastics are removed by our state-of-the-art recycling equipment at Mangham 80 as these materials cannot be burnt and some (such as the PVC) give off highly toxic emissions when burnt.
Employing uniformly shaped and calorifically-rich Refuse Derived Fuels as an energy efficient alternative to traditional non-renewable fossil fuels has helped traditionally fossil-fuel burning industrial businesses such as Power Stations and Cement kilns to dramatically reduce their environmental impact.
To enable this effective re-use, our strict manufacturing processes ensures that our resulting RDF product is uniform in size, and that the material composition of our product ensures optimal transportation and kiln feeding processes, whilst also ensuring that the homogeneous composition of the RDF enables a constant quantity of heat (calorific value) to be achieved by these types of industries.
Using RDF fuel within cement kilns is an ideal re-use of waste - on burning the fuel at the exceptionally high temperatures required by cement kilns ensures that any toxic gases present from burning the waste naturally neutralises and is absorbed by the high degree of lime and alkaline material within the cement kiln, with the added bonus that the clinker has a natural ability to absorb heavy metals into its own structure.
