Learn the Critical Steps of RDF Production

Turning waste into refuse-derived fuel (RDF) involves separating out unwanted material, reducing material size and consistent blending. There are many processing techniques that help achieve these targets.

Turning waste into refuse-derived fuel (RDF) involves separating out unwanted material, reducing material size and consistent blending. There are many processing techniques that help achieve these targets. During the Renewable Energy from Waste Conference, taking place Nov. 18-20, several companies are involved in the production of RDF will let you know how they do it.
