Densified refuse-derived fuel (d-RDF) is produced by compacting refuse-derived fuel (RDF) into agglomerated pieces sufficiently cohesive to sustain storage and handling. The use of this d-RDF product as a substitute for coal in spreader-stoker boilers is a developing resource recovery alternative. This report covers an investigation of the operation, performance and product characteristics of a waste shredding and densification subsystem for production of d-RDF from air-classified light fraction and provides a technical and economic evaluation of d-RDF facilities for small communities.
