This feasibility study addresses how using waste as fuel could deliver measurable benefits in landfills as well as in the CO2 and slurry emission of the local power plant. Current landfills will be evaluated, quantifying the possible amount of waste to be utilized. Waste production will be evaluated based on potential to be sorted and shredded for secondary raw material. Based on these measures the amount of RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) and SRF (Solid Recovered Fuel) can be estimated. SRF is a high-quality alternative to fossil fuels to be used in the powerplant after the furnaces are modified. The economic analysis covers a basic ROI calculation of the whole project.
