NOVAGO has developed and implemented an innovative method of full-cycle waste processing, in which generated energy is used to produce RDF fuel. In a nutshell, biogas from the organic fraction of waste is used to produce electricity that powers a plant, and heat used to dry RDF fuel. Drying aims to improve the quality parameters of the fuel, especially its calorific value, i.e. the amount of energy that can be obtained by burning it.
NOVAGO uses two fractions of waste with high energy potential.
The first one is organic waste − as a result of the biological and mechanical processes taking place
in organic waste deposits, high-calorific methane is released and then burnt in the biogas-fired CHP plant to produce heat and power.
The other one is combustible waste, such as plastics, paper, wood, etc. It is used to produce RDF, alternative high-calorific fuel which replaces fossil fuels (e.g. coal) in cement kilns.
The installations designed and used by NOVAGO have stood the test of time and now allow us to use
the alternative fuel and at the same time produce heat and power from renewable sources.
