UK Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) Energy from Waste

Convert waste heat to sustainable and usable forms of clean renewable energy, including heat, steam and electricity.

Following successful installation and commissioning of waste Incinerator plants in other countries, Environ Consultants Ltd and Dutch Incinerators, Netherlands, have brought this successful waste incineration technology to the United Kingdom.

The first UK plant, located in Telford, England, has submitted planning for the installation of a 15MW Environ Dutch Incinerators DI-15 – 3,000kg/hr Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) Incineration Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Plant.

How does it work?

The 15MW Energy from Waste (EfW) combustion plant, is fuelled by processed Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) as RDF and has flexibility to combust this fuel within a broad spectrum of particle sizes, calorific values and moisture contents. 

Combustion gas energy is converted to Combined Heat and Power producing 800kW of electrical generation for site parasitic use and export to the National Grid.

An estimated 8MW of thermal energy rejected in the cooling water will be used for domestic heating of site buildings and adjacent properties and provide heat for an Environ Oven Dryer for fuel preparation and other material drying applications.

Heat is by-passed to a Dry Air Cooler when the process is not requiring all the heat.

Dry Flue Gas Treatment

A Dry Flue Gas Treatment system (DFGT) will be installed to control stack emissions in compliance with Environment Agency - Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) - chapter-IV limits.

A Continuous Emissions Monitoring System (CEMS) continuously monitors stack emissions providing live emissions data as required by the Local Authority. 

The plant is designed to achieve a throughput corresponding with up to 3 tonnes per hour of nominal RDF (12-18MJ/kg) input. Energy in the waste will vary from batch to batch and is determined by the moisture content and calorific value and type of waste mix. The fuel feed system will alter the kg/hr combustion rate to a maximum of 3,000kg/hr – 24,966 tonnes per year. 

The plant can run fully automated 24 hrs per day and will be manned during daytime hours.

Electricity which offsets plant costs

The business model is based on burning 24,966 tonnes per year of RDF saving annual disposal costs of £2,646,396. 

Electricity generated will off-set all the plant parasitic and site electrical loads with an excess of generation estimated at 100kW per hour – 832,2MWe that will be exported to the National Grid generating an annual income of £37,449
