Reliable for the required output

Best material quality and impressive throughput: Refuse derived fuel production with Doppstadt

Refuse derived fuel production

The greatest challenge in processing waste into refuse derived fuel can be attributed to the sometimes very diverse composition of input material that has to be shredded, screened and separated.

The machines from Doppstadt excel thanks to their low operating cost and wide variety of possible modifications and adjustments to meet customer specific requirements. The maintenance friendly design ensures short set-up time and maximum throughput for optimum efficiency and economic viability.

The materials that are processed with Doppstadt systems mainly include

  • Bulky waste
  • Industrial waste
  • Commercial waste
  • Construction site waste
  • Sorting residues

Depending on the product requirements, and thus the extent of treatment necessary, different system components are utilized for pre- and post-shredding as well as separation to precisely meet the specific demands. The end result is always a product of optimum quality and particle size.

The advantages of Doppstadt machines for production of refuse derived fuel:

  • Maximum availability of individual components guarantees maximum availability of the entire process
  • Easy-to-maintain machinery increases productivity over the course of many years
  • Best shredding for optimum throughput at very low operating cost

Our comprehensive consulting services with regard to refuse derived fuel production are based on many years of experience, thus guaranteeing the perfect solution for every application. A solution that includes the reliable Doppstadt service as well.

Treatment of refuse-deriver fules

Refuse-derived fuels (RDFs) are fuels derived from waste that can replace primary fuels in the thermal processes of the primary industry or in the energy generation sector. Refuse-derived fuels can be distinguished into two categories based on the amount of processing they require:

CATEGORY 1: types of waste that are initially recovered as a mono-fraction and can be sent for co-incineration without major treatment measures.

CATEGORY 2: high-calorific waste streams from a mechanical biological treatment plant which must be treated before co-incineration on account of being recovered together with other waste materials, high-calorific light fraction after mechanical treatment (foils, waste wood, paper, plastics etc.), high-calorific fraction after mechanical and aerobic/anaerobic biological treatment.


The materials processed by our systems come predominantly from the second category: residual waste and bulky waste from households as well as residual industrial and commercial waste including household-type commercial waste, production-specific commercial waste, construction waste, sorting residues.
