Refuse Derived Fuel An energy resource produced by the separation of combustible materials (refuse) from municipal solid waste. This material is then combined with coal and burnt as a refuse-derived fuel, which is usually 5 to 25 percent refuse.
Refuse Derived Fuel. A fuel produced from combustible waste that can be stored and transported or used directly on site to produce heat and/or power.
The fuel component of municipal solid waste (MSW), which is the by-product of shredding MSW to a uniform size, screening out oversized materials and isolating ferrous material in magnetic separation. The resulting RDF can be burned as a fuel source.
