Solid Recovered Fuel
Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF or RDF, Refuse-Derived Fuel) is dry and clean, made from waste that could not be sorted or recycled, such as non-hazardous industrial (NHI) waste, construction waste, bulk waste from landfills. It is usually wood, plastics, paper, and cardboard.
According to the ADEME, the current amount of unrecovered non-hazardous waste would produce up to 3 million tons of SRF.
First, waste that could not be sorted or recycled is pre-ground. Inert material, metal, and chlorine residuals are removed using various sorting methods: mechanical, optical, and ventilation. After granulation, the fuel is quality controlled.
In 2011, Paprec acquired a sorting line for Solid Recovered Fuel in Bruguières (31). The SRF it produces supplies a large French cement manufacturer.
