Refuse-derived fuels


Production of refuse-derived fuels

High quality substitute fuels for cement works and power stations

It is always our goal to make sure that all types of waste are recycled in the best possible way – including hazardous wastes such as oils, solvents and other chemicals. In some cases, though, there are limits here and not all substances can be recycled so that they can be reused. REMONDIS Industrie Service has a sustainable solution for these cases as well: we transform semi-solid, solid and liquid residual materials that cannot be recycled for reuse into high quality refuse-derived fuel (RDF). This ensures that the most is made of the energy-producing potential of this waste. What’s more, these RDFs can be used by cement works, power stations and other large combustion plants as a substitute for conventional fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas – something that not only helps conserve natural resources but also CO2reduces carbon emissions.

Refuse-derived fuels can also be made from sewage sludge, waste wood and hazardous waste. Get in touch to find out more

Every single stage of the production process used to make RDF at REMONDIS Industrie Service is subject to stringent quality controls to guarantee the products are always of the same high quality

How you benefit

Comprehensive expertise

Thanks to our years of experience, we are able to identify which type of refuse-derived fuel is most suitable for practically all kinds of incineration technology.

Delivery by tanker

We have a large fleet of tankers so that we can provide a reliable service and deliver our products to our customers across Europe on time.

Comprehensive services

We provide our customers with advice about the different ways refuse-derived fuels can be used and, on request, can set up storage tanks and loading stations on their premises.

High levels of flexibility

We can respond quickly and deliver the quantities required at any time – e.g. during peak production times or if a business unexpectedly finds itself needing more RDF.

Assured qualities

We have specialist laboratories with cutting-edge technology and experienced staff at all of our tank farms to ensure our products meet all quality expectations.

Producing and delivering liquid refuse-derived fuels

REMONDIS Industrie Service is an important manufacturer and supplier of liquid refuse-derived fuels across Germany. To be able to offer these services, we operate specialist tank storage technology and processing plants at several locations around the country. All in all, we have the capacities to store over 25,000m3. On the one hand, this means we are always able to accept a whole range of different types of liquid waste from waste producers, no matter how large the quantity. On the other, having such large storage capacities also benefits the businesses that purchase our recycled fuels because our tanks are also used for storing large quantities of custom-made RDF produced for individual customers – ensuring that we can deliver the fuel whenever they need it.

We can, of course, also produce solid refuse-derived fuels

From recyclable material to liquid RDF

We get the high calorific waste we need to produce our RDFs from industrial sites across the whole of Germany as well as from neighbouring countries. One of the benefits of our logistics system is that our tank farms are situated all around the country and close to Germany’s borders. If you wish, we can also organise the collection and transport of your waste from start to finish. Whether it be by road, rail or canal – we have the tankers, tank wagons and barges needed to collect both large and small quantities of liquid waste stored, for example, in drums or IBCs. And, as the waste producer, you can be sure that we will always process your waste into a quality-assured recycled material that can be used to produce resource-friendly energy. This is all made possible thanks to our in-house logistics and the strong collaboration work between our tanks farms.

We produce liquid RDF from a variety of wastes including

  • Waste solvents or waste containing solvents
  • Distillation residue
  • Waste liquid paint and varnish
  • Liquid waste oil, incl. slops
  • Waste fuels

“Germany’s cement industry is looking to achieve net zero by 2050. This path is not going to be easy. Refuse-derived fuels are an important tool for curbing climate change as they can be used as a substitute for fossil fuels.”

Matthias Teuwen, Sales Manager

Producing solid and semi-solid refuse-derived fuels

We also produce solid refuse-derived fuels at our processing plant besides our liquid RDFs. A different production system is used, however, to do this. The incoming materials must undergo a multi-stage process before becoming a finished product. The first step is to cut up the materials so that they are all the same size. Depending on what formula is applied, the shredded material is then transformed into a free-flowing mixture with sawdust or polyurethane powder and organic dust. Following this, the material is screened until the particles are smaller than 40 millimetres in size. Finally, the material is analysed in our own laboratory to check that all of the benchmarks and threshold values required by our customers – who are normally cement works here, too – have been met.

Source materials for our solid RDF

  • Distillation residue
  • Resins, paints and varnishes
  • Sealant
  • Glues and adhesives
