Abstract

The current state of the art in waste sorting and RDF production in EC countries and Sweden is reviewed. It is shown that since our first report in 1977 the application of waste sorting technology has expanded but, due to market demands, the emphasis has moved towards fuel production. Despite the growth in the number of process plants the technology is still not optimized and full operational status has been difficult to realize at many plants. There is evidence that insufficient attention has been paid during research, development and planning to ensure that the technology installed is matched to the feedstock materials and to market requirements. Recommendations are made concerning areas where further R $:20 D is required.
