Stronga install SRF & RDF dryer for a high output waste management company in the UK

Drying RDF

New possibilities are being created for transforming waste into energy. Increasing landfill tax rates are driving a change towards processing waste into energy, while reducing the quantities sent to landfill. Maximise your efficiency and profits using the Waste Series FlowDrya. Now is the perfect time to invest.

Waste to Fuel

The UK Government’s Renewable Heat Initiative (RHI) is creating real opportunities for recycling and waste management companies to directly convert waste wood fraction into energy for drying. Stronga recently installed FlowDrya Waste Series for a recycling company in England. See photos of the RDF and SRF drying set up in this article.

SRF & RDF specifications.

Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) is produced from commercial waste such as paper, textiles and plastic. With a moisture content of less than 15%, SRF has a high calorific value and is primarily used in cement kilns.

Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF)

Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) is produced from domestic waste such as biodegradable materials and plastics. RDF has higher moisture content than SRF. RDF is used in Combined Heat and Power (CHP) facilities where electricity and hot water are produced for communal heating systems. This approach produces far fewer carbon emissions.

Our waste management client is using the FlowDrya to dry SRF, RDF, waste wood and other waste streams.

From Waste to Added Value.

Stronga’s slogan ‘From Waste to Added Value’ crystallises our end goal – to provide you with the possibility to make more money by adding value to your waste streams. Working direct with the Stronga drying team, we can help you create additional income while reducing costs.

Become an innovator today by creating Energy from Waste (EfW).

Drying Refuse Derived Fuel

Discover the powerful combination of additional income streams and reduced costs to your bottom line through Stronga Waste Series Drying Solutions. Imagine your extra earning and saving potential.
















A key benefit of converting waste to fuel is avoiding expenses associated with waste disposal. Disposal expenses include landfill tax; transport costs; and the cost of machinery damage on the landfill site. The client also has the added benefit of converting a wasted product into high added value fuel.

RDF dryer

SRF and RDF drying process.

1. Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) is pre-sorted into 3 primary waste streams.

  1. Saleable recyclable materials (including waste wood and metals).
  2. Non-recyclable material to be sent to landfill.
  3. High calorific Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) and Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF).

2. RDF, SRF, waste wood or other waste streams are loaded into the high capacity pre-mixing hopper to initiate evaporative drying.

3. On the drying bed, the PulseWave™ mixing motion ensures that every part of the material interacts with hot bed metal during the flow and receives an equal airflow.

4. Temperature-controlled Heatex air rises through the ventilated drying bed and directly into the waste stream to dry the material to the specified moisture content.

5. The final dry product can be used to generate heat and electricity at UK or European plants.

Simple. Robust. Smart.

Our approach of matching simple, robust and smart waste drying equipment to the client’s needs delivers the most efficient drying solution. FlowDrya is a low temperature, low energy, easy to operate dryer, ensuring safe and efficient SRF, RDF and waste wood processing. Enjoy the flexibility to dry a wide range of shredded waste streams…

  1. Primary shredded waste (300mm or less)
  2. RDF / SRF (0-30mm)
  3. Waste wood

Drying waste streams

The European RDF & SRF market…

RDF / SRF exports have enabled UK waste producers to divert waste from landfill and convert it into energy, reducing our fossil fuel reliance and the need for landfill. RDF / SRF export also makes use of surplus European EfW capacity in countries which have found themselves in that position as a result of how they have historically developed their infrastructure capacity differently to the UK.

SRF drying floor

RDF / SRF export will continue to play a vital role and provide UK waste producers with a cost effective, non-landfill option – taking advantage of the spare capacity available in Europe – until the UK catches up and develops more domestic waste-fueled power generation capacity of its own.

Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

FlowDrya Waste Series is fully compatible for use with UK’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme. Our team support clients with RHI application by connecting them with our network of advisers, and providing technical data and thermal calculations.
