RDF / SRF

Waste to Energy shredding has never been so profitable

The alternative fuel production industry has evolved significantly over the years, to the point where many would now consider it a relatively mature market. But that doesn’t mean, as a sector, we’ve exhausted all opportunities when it comes to the efficient manufacturing of RDF and SRF. In fact, things are just starting to get really exciting…

  • Why shred to produce RDF & SRF?

    Preserving the resource value of ‘waste’ materials by transforming them into an alternative fuel, helps protect the world's environmental agenda. Non-renewable energy sources such as coal and gas are depleting, and more renewable substitutes with less carbon impact are crucial for modern society.

  • Why shred to produce RDF & SRF?

    The goal should always be to reduce, reuse, recycle 'wastes' - in that order - but for as long as materials such as MSW and C&I waste keep being produced, the recovery route should then be prioritised. This avoids costly disposal fees too.

  • Why shred to produce RDF & SRF?

    There was a time when alternative fuel production was only considered by market leaders with vast budgets to invest, or a particularly transparent environmental agenda to drive. But as demand has increased, more firms are entering the lucrative Waste to Energy market. Thankfully, technological innovation means the process is far simpler – and more profitable – than it has ever been.

  • How can UNTHA help you produce RDF / SRF?

    UNTHA has been at the forefront of the RDF and SRF manufacturing space for the last decade – we’ve even been consulted on the industry refinement of specifications to drive quality within the Waste to Energy Market. But we’ve not once rested on our laurels. We’ve continued to innovate, which sees the globally-renowned UNTHA XR lead the way when it comes to quick SRF (on-specification fuel production in a single step).

  • How can UNTHA help you produce RDF / SRF?

    The XR shredder can produce an alternative fuel for under $4 per tonne, including wear spares, maintenance and power. And, thanks to the energy consumption savings alone, cashflow and operating costs can be reduced by 60% or over $50,000 per year, or $500,000 over the life of the shredder, compared to a diesel hydraulic machine. All of this with up to 80% increased yield on ferrous and non-ferrous material, which could pay for the machine in as little as 12 months!

  • How can UNTHA help you produce RDF / SRF?

    UNTHA has manufactured many types of alternative fuels on almost every continent in the world. We’ve helped transform footwear production waste into a cement fuel in Vietnam; we’ve closed the loop for a recycled paper specialist in Belgium to transform pulper ropes into an energy source; and we’re currently working with operators in Australia to drive their Process Engineered Fuel (PEF) potential. The list goes on – every project is different, but our knowledge is driving change, globally.

  • How can UNTHA help you produce RDF / SRF?

    When we designed our waste shredders, we didn’t just prioritise throughputs. We also thought carefully about particle homogeneity, foreign object protection, noise and dust minimisation, energy efficiency, ease of maintenance and long service intervals. This all adds up to operational excellence and maximum bottom line impact for clients.

  • How can UNTHA help you produce RDF / SRF?

    The expertise of UNTHA’s Energy from Waste specialists is sought at conferences across the globe, to help drive understanding and education surrounding best practice RDF and SRF production. We’ve worked with cement operators to close the loop and create a secure feedstock for the calciner or main burner; we’ve helped start-up business earn millions from this market; and we’ve transformed the profitability and energy efficiency of long-established WtE firms that have been doing this for years.

“The world of Waste to Energy is fast-paced and frequently changing. The very purpose of it is to produce fossil fuel substitutes that can vastly improve our resource security as a nation. But in pursuing such a ‘green’ agenda, it is important to invest in solutions that enhance the commercial viability of the whole operation. Our shredding overhaul has fulfilled this brief entirely.”
