Using a Waste Incineration Directive compliant biomass boiler from Wood Energy Ltd for the drying of RDF/SRF is a great way of reducing disposal costs.
It not only reduces the weight – saving up to 25% on disposal gate fees and transport costs – but it also improves the calorific value making the product much better for incineration and avoids irresponsible possibility of landfill.
Wood Energy will be exhibiting at WASTE ’18 on Stand G at the custom-built Warwickshire Event Centre, in Leamington Spa on July 5.
Calculations show if you are paying £90/t gate fees, drying 40,000 tonnes of RDF/SRF from 40% to just 20% can save you £900,000 per year – a 25% reduction for companies on gate fees.
Wood Energy Sales & Marketing Director, Jeff Tomlinson said: “The result is even greater for companies that have grade B/C wood to dispose of too.
“A gate fee of as little as £25/t for B or C grade will save you a further £81,000 per year, as you can use this material as fuel to power the boiler – that’s almost £1 million in savings per year, every year going forward.
“We have machines that can handle 20,000 tonnes to over 200,000 tonnes – with a payback of less than two years in some cases.”
