Ruchita.N | Srinivasa Reddy.N | Satyanarayana.S.V
Abstract: Solid wastes are increasing in urban areas. Characteristics of the solid wastes are dynamic and are changing with technology and cultural and living habits of the population. Conventional methods of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) disposal on to the open lands are causing threat to soil-water and air. Also finding open lands within Municipal limits is difficult and huge amounts municipal budgets are spent on transportation of wastes to far of places. Removal of moisture content and non-combustible matter can be made use making Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) pellets. In this technical paper, principles of making RDF pellets, calorific value associated with MSW-RDF pellets and their use as substitute conventional fossil fuels is examined, for which Jaipur City is taken as a case study.
Keywords: MSW, Refused Derived Fuel RDF, RDF Calorific Value, Energy Generation form MSW
