Could you be producing RDF or SRF but think you can’t afford to?

Ever-rising landfill charges and growing sustainability consciences mean UK organisations are becoming increasingly discerning about their waste management strategies. Traditional disposal methods are no longer acceptable or affordable – customers are demanding more.

It is therefore no surprise that the buzz surrounding alternative fuel production is continuing to mount. Waste to Energy (WtE) technologies have revolutionised the way that many European countries have tackled their approach to resource efficiency, and the time is now ripe for the UK to better align its waste and energy agendas too.

So what benefits does the production of a Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) or Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) deliver?

  • Landfill disposal is avoided, which is crucial at a time when taxes are set to reach an all-time high and landfill space is running out
  • RDF and SRF can be used in power stations and cement kilns as a substitute to ever-depleting fossil fuels
  • We can harness the value of a new resource, made from the rubbish that our nation continues to produce
  • Money can be saved and additional revenue streams generated.

How can UNTHA UK help?

With many years’ experience in this niche alternative fuel production industry, UNTHA UK is well-placed to support organisations with their waste to energy strategies.

Our UNTHA XR primary shredder and UNTHA TR secondary shredder have been purposefully designed to satisfy the needs of this market. By listening to the requirements of key industry professionals, UNTHA has engineered these world-renowned shredders so that the alternative fuel production process is as efficient as possible and the needs of the end customer are wholly satisfied.

When combined, these numerous benefits equate to more uptime, more throughput and more revenue for our customers. No other waste to energy shredders can offer this level of return on investment, which is why we are so transparent with our costs.

Thanks to UNTHA Finance, these WtE shredders have never been so affordable. A range of lending packages are available for customers who want to pay a low deposit and spread the cost of the shredder, to protect their cash flow and avoid upfront capital expenditure. What’s more, we have an XR2000S shredder with 2 x 132kW motors and conveyor, plus a TR3200 secondary shredder with 1 x 315kW motor, available for immediate delivery. This means that you could be producing the most cost-effective RDF or SRF within a matter of weeks – this lead time will not be found elsewhere.
