Refuse Derived Fuel and Coal Fuel
Coal fuel has serve as the primary source of energy for a very long time ago. The availability and efficiently of the source has made it to be the customarily used energy source for the long run. Coal fuel has been used worldwide to provide power for the performance of machinery and engine. But because of the fast pace of our modern time, it came to the point that Combustion of Coal has already reached its limit and signs of destruction of the atmosphere have been a serious threat to the citizens as well as the wildlife. Coal contains and elicits carbon dioxide (CO2) along with varying amounts of different hazardous chemical that lingers in the earth’s atmosphere during combustion.
The technology of Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) is a fuel produced from treating, shredding, and dehydrating waste, which aims to replace the primary source of fuel in thermal procedures of energy conversion. It has set us free from our dependence in using harmful source of energy, turning us to solid recovered energy which is yielding us with the same results as the coal-fired energy. But with the emphasis on the reduction of waste from landfills, lesser emission of CO2 and other threatening chemicals of the same effect in the atmosphere that causes changes in the weather. Moreover, the patronage of Refuse derived fuel (RDF) provides time for the planet to heal from over exposure to destructive elements.
One of the high performing innovations in our present day is the production of Refuse derived fuel (RDF) from sorting and processing household or Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) from landfills and dumpsites. Non combustible materials such as metal, glass, and other non biodegradable wastes are removed in the preliminary processing of the course by mechanical separation processing. These non combustible can either be recycled or reused. It can be sold to markets that can use it as such or for processing as well.
Refuse derived fuel has been gaining status in rural and urban communities. It can be used in various ways to produce electrical energy source. It can be used alongside other energy source of coal power plants. In terms of its usage and application, reduce derive fuel (RDF) power plants and facilities are fast emerging. Various companies and industrialized countries have been patronizing and operating with the use of Refuse derived fuel (RDF) technology as their power source to extract industrial waste management concerns and produce merchandise through an environment friendly process.
