Production and utilisation options for Solid Recovered Fuels

In the circular economy, the production and utilisation of Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) is increasingly recognised as an important element in waste management practises. SRF is produced from non-hazardous waste from biological and fossil origins and can therefore be regarded as a partly renewable fuel. It usually has undergone a sorting process and therefore delivers a fuel that meets strict quality requirements. Narrow specifications of the fuel allow for more targeted end user applications, thereby benefitting the economic and environmental performance.

Recently there have been several new experiences in the production and use of SRF. This workshop provides and update in the potential market volumes of SRF, policy developments and experiences of market actors involved.

The event will be held Thursday 17 May as part of the European Biomass Conference in Copenhagen and is accessible free of charge. Registration is however required, as the number of seats are limited.
