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.


First, Nat Egosi of RRT Design & Construction, Melville, N.Y., will lead the session, "Panel Discussion: Preprocessing and Refuse Derived Fuels" on Monday, Nov. 18, from 1:30-2:30 p.m. He will be joined by:
Steven M. Viny, CEO, Envision Holdings;
John Dewey, CEO, Mustang Renewable Power Ventures LLC; and
Uwe Eschenhorst, VP, Center of Competence/Waste Systems at Vecoplan LLC.

Then on Tuesday, Nov. 19, from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m., the session, "Technology Profile: Refuse Derived Fuel" will introduce you to three companies that are producing RDF or engineered fuel from discarded materials and selling it to various manufacturers. Bob Brickner of Gershman, Brickner & Bratton (GBB), will moderate the session that includes presentations from:
Mark Taylor, vice president, Data Management Services;
Randy Wolf, director of business development, Balcones Fuel Technologies; and
Ted Hanson, general manager, Greenwood Energy.

These two sessions on processing techniques and company approaches will provide attendees a 360-degree view of the RDF industry.

The Renewable Energy from Waste Conference event is organized by the Recycling Today Media Group in partnership with GBB and Smithers Apex. For a full schedule of sessions and to register, visit www.REWConference.com.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
