Powerday boosts SRF production in West London

Powerday produced and exported 2,000 tonnes of SRF in November

London-based recycling and waste management company Powerday will now be able to produce solid recovered fuel (SRF) following a £2m investment.

During November, 2,000 tonnes of SRF was produced and exported thanks to an upgrade to the firm’s MRF in West London.

This will now be used in the cement industry in place of fossil fuels, which Powerdays said is more sustainable and cost effective due to the higher calorific value of SRF.

Powerday already produces around 100,000 tonnes of refuse derived fuel (RDF) every year.

Simon Little, Powerday sales and marketing director, said: “It is very satisfying to again have invested in upgrading our plant capability and capacity with the resulting materials being valued and sought after in the market.

“We have already attracted considerable interest in this fuel from around the world and we will be working with suppliers in the coming weeks and months to secure long term supply.”

SRF exports have increased from 42,000 in 2016 to 186,000 in 2017, according to the Environment Agency (EA).

The EfW Conference will take place on 27-28 February, 2019.
