Stopford conducted a technical and commercial analysis of processing options for mixed waste produced in a medium sized town in Eastern Europe. The study considered different scenarios for the separation of recyclable materials, and the generation of heat from the residual waste, or RDF (refuse derived fuel). Commercial scale greenhouses nearby were identified as possible end users for the RDF as a fuel for heating and generating electricity for use on site. A feasibility study was conducted to determine heat and power demand at the greenhouses. A waste-sorting scheme was proposed for the incoming mixed waste, and a high-level design for a materials recovery facility was prepared.
