New Publication – Trends on use of solid recovered fuels

May 2020

This IEA Bioenergy Task 36 report analyses the trends on the use of solid recovered fuels (SRF) in a selection of countries in Europe, Asia and Africa. Solid Recovered Fuels (SRFs) are a subset of the large family of Refuse Derived Fuels (RDFs), consisting of processed fuels that meet specific quality requirements defined in a standard. The report looks at the current role of SRF (production and final end uses) in the waste-to-energy value chains, with the main drivers and barriers. It also looks into future perspectives of the use of SRF for energy recovery, within circular economy developments.
