Household waste, or RDF, is an ideal feedstock for use in the production of renewable fuels. The organic material found in household garbage is rich in hydrogen and carbon, the building blocks for jet fuel.
The utilisation of energy from waste reduces the consumption of essential primary sources of fossil fuels such as coal, petroleum and natural gas. Because more than 60 percent of the energy generated from the waste comes from renewable resources, energy from waste is essentially CO2-neutral. Recovering energy from waste will result in a reduction of greenhouse gases, which will provide a valuable contribution to a climate neutral energy production in Norway.
