Abstract
One of the main environmental problems in all the developed countries is the disposal of the high amount of waste that is generated every day. Energy industries are looking for implementing new Solid Recovery Fuels (SRFs) from municipal, industrial wastes and sewage sludge for sustainable development. The waste management has developed ways to produce secondary fuels as SRFs with reliable qualities, which are used successfully regarding economic and environmental aspects. The aim of this study is the research on the flammability properties of a new solid and homogeneous SRFs obtained from different solid wastes ?streams? from the standpoint of fuel recovery. The quality of the fuel is achieved through the combination of different conventional mechanical processes and a thermal treatment that allows obtaining a fuel with better energetic properties for use in a greater number of combustion plants. The results of this study would contribute to the development of adequate strategies improving safety in the storage and handling of SRFs in the coming years. The analysed SRF samples were selected from different locations in Spain and taken during different seasons.
