BIOMASS FROM RDF

Landfill gas is a complex mix of different gases created by the action of microorganisms within a landfill. Landfill gas is approximately 40% to 60% percent  methane, with the remainder being mostly carbon dioxide. Trace amounts of other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) comprise the remainder (<1%). These trace gases include a large array of species, mainly simple hydrocarbons.


The combustible product which is obtained from the RDF unit is used as fuel in the biomass power plant


Steam is obtained at high temperature and pressure from the combustion of the RDF product.


The obtained high temperature and pressure steam is converted into electrical energy by using turbine systems.

WHAT IS RDF ? (REFUSE-DERIVED FUEL)

The combustible fraction recovered from mixed MSW has been given
the name refuse derived fuel or simply "RDF"

SIZE SCREENING


Size screening involves separating the waste based on the size and shape of the particle. It helps in material handling comfortably..

MAGNETIC SEPERATION


Magnetic separation is a process in which magnetically susceptible material is extracted from a mixture using magnetic force
This process is useful in separating the metal particles from the crushed particles. Because metal particles are not suite for RDF

SHREDDING


Shredding involves the process of destructing the large amount of solid waste
into smaller pieces by crushing and cutting.
