Potential of Refuse Derived Fuel Production from Solid Waste in Open Dumping Area
Keywords:Open Dumping Area, Refuse Derived Fuel, Solid Waste
The objectives for the potential of refuse-derived fuel production from solid waste in open dumping area were to survey the amount of municipal solid waste (MSW) in open dumping area, heating value, and moisture content of MSW to analyze the potential of refuse-derived fuel production. The results showed that the average weight of MSW was 216.61 tons per day, and the number of garbage trucks that entered the area was 74 cars per day, respectively. The heating value of MSW 3-10 years was 4,000 kcal/kg, 0-3 years was 6,000 kcal/kg, and more than 10 years was 8,000 kcal/kg, in term of daily MSW that was collected and disposed of into this open dumping area has heating value 7,000 kcal/kg, respectively. The moisture content of MSW 0-3 years was an average of 35%, 0-3 years was an average of 20%, more than 10 years was an average of 10%, and daily MSW was an average of 5%, respectively. From the research, the data can support MSW management in open dumping area, producing refuse-derived fuel: RDF 2 and 3 that are material for thermal energy or electrical energy. Thus, this research can be linked to sustainable development goal 7 on access to energy and increasing the proportion of alternative energy.
