Waste to fuel
Enhancing the energy output of alternative fuels
Waste is a stable and profitable energy source. Material that has been used and disposed of can be turned into energy-efficient fuel to replace or complement other sources of energy in various applications.
Waste fuels, often referred to as “alternative fuels,” are generally produced from municipal solid waste and commercial and industrial waste. Common types of alternative fuels are refuse-derived fuel (RDF) and solid recovered fuel (SRF).
Removing impurities and substances with low energy content allow higher-quality waste fuel to be produced. An efficient and properly designed production process increases the calorific value of the waste fuel and ensures that the fuel is optimal for the application.
Metso manufactures waste recycling equipment and provides maintenance and professional services for companies producing or utilizing alternative fuels. Multiple businesses around the world have increased the value of their alternative fuels, regardless of the waste being processed, with our solutions.
