Alternative Fuel

Offering tailored recycling solutions to generate sustainable alternative fuel.

Alternative Fuel - Recycling Solution by eFACTOR3

Alternative fuel refers to any fuel source that serves as a substitute for traditional fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas. These alternative fuels are often sought after due to environmental, economic, and energy security concerns. They are used in various sectors, including transportation, power generation, and industrial processes.

New legislation is driving a growing trend in the production of substitute and alternative fuels, ​​which also help with carbon credits. This trend is accompanied by anticipated increases in recycling rates across municipalities throughout the United States. As a result, more easily accessible waste streams are projected to emerge. These waste streams can be converted into fuels suitable for the cement and lime industries, as well as biomass power plants and other industrial boiler systems that currently rely on fossil fuels for combustion. The cement industry specifically has set goals to become carbon neutral by 2030.

Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) Production

Alternative fuel, specifically in the context of Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF), refers to a type of engineered fuel derived from various non-recyclable waste materials. SRF is designed to be a substitute for traditional fossil fuels and is used as an energy source in industrial processes, power generation, and cement and lime kilns.

eFACTOR3 offers a complete line of products for this challenging application. Most lines are comprised of a pre-shredder, a magnet, and a screen. Other separation processes include a wind sifter as well as other components (ex. eddy currents and/or optical sorters). The final step is a fine shredder that ensures consistent fuel size. These single shaft shredders have been developed specifically for the production of alternative fuels from waste.

Types of Waste/Materials: MSW, C&I, C&D, biomass, MRF residuals, and more

Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) Consumers

  • Cement Kilns
  • Lime Kilns
  • Combined Heat and Power Plants
  • District Energy Plants

Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) delivery systems are designed to receive, transport and deliver SRF, a type of engineered fuel derived from non-recyclable waste materials, to various end-users such as waste-to-energy facilities, cement kilns, industrial boilers, and other energy-intensive processes. These systems ensure the efficient and safe transportation of SRF to the points of use in these facilities. Our range of solutions aids in enhancing this process, ensuring that the delivery of SRF material is both environmentally secure and operationally efficient.
