Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF)

A Sustainable Energy Solution

 
Products > Industrial Fuels > Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF)
 

Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) is an environmentally beneficial and economical alternative energy source, produced from non-recyclable municipal and industrial waste. It supplements or replaces thermal coal and can be used by production facilities with little or no modification in their solid fuel systems. SRF is used to power various heat treatment plants, including cement factories, heating plants, industrial furnaces, etc. It is a low-ash low-sulfur alternative fuel that may be eligible for Renewable Energy Credits in some countries.

 

Renelux supplies the cement plants of South Europe with Italian Origin Class 1, Class 2, and Class 3 SRF, in accordance with the EC Regulation 1013/2006. Renelux SRF is a high-quality alternative fuel with Net Calorific Value up to 28 MJ/kg. Thanks to its high CV and its attractive pricing, Renelux SRF is an excellent fuel for cement kilns and other industrial facilities that are located in South Europe and not only.


 
SRF is a source of energy that's not subject to the price volatility of conventional solid fuels
The quality of SRF can be established on a custom basis as per the end user's requirements
SRF is a Non-hazardous waste
SRF combustion is recognized as neutral in terms of CO2 emissions

Legal Framework

 

Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 of 14 June 2006 on shipments of waste lays down procedures for the transboundary shipments (i.e. transport) of waste. This Regulation implements into EU law the provisions of the "Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal" as well as the OECD Decision. The Regulation includes a ban on the export of hazardous wastes to non-OECD countries ("Basel ban") as well as a ban on the export of waste for disposal.

 

Shipments of SRF destined for recovery operations within the European Union are subject to the procedure of prior written notification and consent as laid down in TITLE II, Chapter I, Articles 4-17 of the Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006.

Notification shall be effected by means of the following documents:

 

the notification document set out in Annex IA; and
the movement document set out in Annex IB of the Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006

 

The notifier shall supply on, or annex to, the notification document information and documentation as listed in Annex II, Part 1 of the Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006. The notifier shall supply on, or annex to, the movement document information and documentation referred to in Annex II, Part 2, to the extent possible at the time of notification.

 

A notification shall be considered properly carried out when the competent authority of dispatch is satisfied that the notification document and movement document have been completed as stated above.

The notifier may submit a general notification to cover several shipments if, in the case of each shipment:

 

the waste has essentially similar physical and chemical characteristics; and
the waste is shipped to the same consignee and the same facility; and
the route of the shipment as indicated in the notification document is the same.

 

Shipments of SRF from the European Union to OECD-Decision countries are subject to the provisions of Article 38, whereas Shipments of SRF from the European Union to Non-OECD-Decision countries are subject to the provisions of Article 36 of the Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006
