Solid Recovered Fuel – Optimization of Plants in the Polish Economic Reality
© Lehrstuhl für Abfallverwertungstechnik und Abfallwirtschaft der Montanuniversität Leoben (11/2016)
Waste management and district heating systems, especially in scope of smaller facilities, require a thorough modernization. In addition, the existing model of these systems, especially for small and medium-territorial units, is not able to meet new requirements of the EU policy in the field of resources and energy efficiency. It is therefore necessary to seek for the new model which quality will be closer to the requirements of the overall strategy of the European Commission, whose key elements includes the impact of the project on the social prosperity and the preservation of the principles of sustainable development.

Modelling of Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) Properties Based on Material Composition – Chloride Quality
© TK Verlag - Fachverlag für Kreislaufwirtschaft (9/2016)
Producing solid recovered fuels (SRF) is a well-established route for recovering energy resources from municipal solid waste (household and/or commercial). Chloride content critically impacts the quality of SRF. It directly influences operation of thermal processes, having deleterious effects through the high temperature corrosion of the boilers and through demands placed on the flue gas treatment (FGT) system, which could impact emissions control. Whereas design and specification of process plant can mitigate the technical issues associated with the presence of chloride experienced during thermal treatment, processing such fuels is associated with increased capital, operating and maintenance costs. This, at best, restricts the uptake/use of SRF or increases the cost of its treatment towards achieving a reduced chloride content.

Development of Waste Management in the Arab Region

The Department of Waste Management and Material Flow of the University of Rostock has been active in Arab countries for over 20 years, and has initiated, carried out and scientifically supervised numerous projects. Waste management and material flow is an important theme in the field of German development cooperation in the MENA regions and has gained in significance in recent years.

Refuse Derived Fuel – A European Market Heading for Overcapacity
© TK Verlag - Fachverlag für Kreislaufwirtschaft (9/2016)
During the last five years, the residual waste market has been transformed from one whose geography was largely defined by a country’s borders to one that has become truly European in nature. Increasing, and now significant, tonnages of refuse derived fuel (RDF) and solid recovered fuel (SRF) are moving across national boundaries. In the UK, for example, the export of RDF and SRF has grown from 250,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) in 2011 to 3.4 million tpa in 2015.

Old method, new approach: for customer-oriented solutions. The demands on innovative grate technologies mean to explore the full potential of available technology and to push the technical boundaries further.

Resource Efficiency in the German Steel Industry

Recovery and recycling of metals from residues is important for protecting our natural resources. Therefore we identified approaches for the utilization of residues of the German steel industry to improve resource efficiency. The study focuses on the residues blast furnace sludge, basic oxygen furnace dust/sludge and electric arc furnace (EAF) dust. The objective of the study was to find further, more efficient connections between process chains.

Refuse Derived Fuel Gasification Technologies for High Efficient Energy Production
© TK Verlag - Fachverlag für Kreislaufwirtschaft (11/2014)
There is an increasing demand for replacing primary resources in manufacturing and fossil fuels in energy production with competitive and renewable alternatives. At the same time, many countries still landfill the majority of their municipal solid waste, causing significant environmental challenges and wasting a valuable resource. Waste is not only a problem to get rid of, but a source of valuable raw materials and competitive alternative to fossil fuels. By adopting an integrated solution for waste management and energy production, a municipality can reduce the environmental impact of waste and increase its revenues from recycling and energy sales. An integrated approach starts with efficient sorting of waste to separate recyclates and wet biowaste. Residual waste is pretreated in a recycling facility to recover remaining recyclates and produce a refuse derived fuel (RDF) for efficient energy recovery. Also energy intensive industries are looking at using RDF to replace fossil fuels.

The study by the bifa environmental institute describes a future-orientated view of the ecological and economic effects of photovoltaic (PV) systems along their whole life cycle.

Decoding interdependencies between primary and secondary raw material markets by means of the Capacity Model
© Wasteconsult international (5/2011)
On the basis of the well-known life-cycle-concept the Capacity Model presents an explanation approach for the interdependencies between primary and secondary raw material markets alongside the life-cycle of different waste materials. Depending on site capacity and waste amount the price for a certain waste material is either determined by the disposal market or the energy and raw material market.
