Refuse derived fuel

Thanks to investment in several key, purpose-built fuel production sites across the country, SUEZ recycling and recovery UK is able to help customers to fulfil their zero-waste-to-landfill ambitions by turning their residual waste into fuel.

We produce fuels to a client’s specification from residual waste, using a range of processing techniques including sorting, trommelling and shredding. The resulting products are used to generate energy at recovery facilities, helping customers to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels and avoid landfilling this residual waste.

Refuse derived fuel is made from domestic waste which includes biodegradable material as well as plastics, and has a lower calorific value than solid recovered fuel. Refuse derived fuel is used in combined heat and power facilities, many of them in Europe where they generate electricity and hot water for communal heating systems in the local area.

Compared to landfilling, the lower carbon emissions resulting from this approach to processing waste outweigh the emissions associated with transporting the reclaimed fuel.

We are able to use our network of facilities and ports to supply this material to customers both in the UK and in Europe. We are experienced in the production, transport and testing of these products and have the ability to tailor these products to individual customer needs.
