Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) Co-processingCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Use of Alternative Fuels|
|Energy Savings Potential||
For every ton of RDF, fossil fuels corresponding to 15 to 19 GJ can be saved.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
For every ton of RDF, following amounts of CO2 reductions can be realized due to avoided coal burning:
1.42 – 1.80 ton
1.48 – 1.88 ton
1.17 – 1.48 ton
In Japan, installation costs for facilities to process 10 t/d of RDF were reported to be approximately US $650 thousand (1US$=¥110).
The economics of RDF usage can be significantly influenced by the availability and level of gate fees.

This Cement technologies booklet was compiled by the APP Cement Task Force (CTF) through one of its activities to help its member countries share information on all available energy efficient technologies generally used in the world’s cement industry. The document offers a comprehensive compilation of commercially-available energy efficient technologies used in the cement industry.
