Alternative fuels, waste-derived fuels (WDF)

Combustible waste is increasingly used not only in thermal waste treatment plants but also as alternative fuels in industrial firing plants, power stations, blast furnaces and cement plants.

Previous treatments are often required to be able to utilise the bound chemical energy within the waste.

Alternative fuels are:

  • high-calorific commercial and industrial residues
  • heterogeneous, high-calorific fractions from household waste and commercial waste mixtures.
    The choice of filter depends on the field of application.
