Waste diversion fuel
Waste diversion fuel, known as RDF/SRF, is produced by shredding and using our state of art waste recycling technology to remove All recycling materials such as metals, glass and plastics. The remaining material is the subject to further recycling techniques and made into RDF fuel. This fuel is then used for thermal treatment as replacement fuel, and also used as a blending agent with other combustion fuels, of which cement kilns are the main user.
Ron Hull (and Ron Hull Jnr's) Waste Hierarchy Regulations 2011
The waste hierarchy regulations 2011 came into affect from the 28th September 2011. The revised framework directive gives top priority to preventing waste in the first place. When a waste is created it gives priority to preparing the waste for re-use, but if the waste cannot be re-used then it must be recycled. If the waste cannot be recycled, then does it have a recovery - for example energy recovery, and finally the last route to go down is disposal of the waste.
Preventing Waste In The First Place
There is usually little that factories, warehouses, contractors and the majority of waste producers can do to directly eliminate their waste streams as it is a function of their process. Ron Hull Jnr's Waste Management Team excel in this field, and are waiting to offer you our support and expertise to review your working practices and offer viable solutions to minimise your wastes, thus reducing waste costs and material purchases.
Re-use Of Waste
This is when products or components that are not waste are used again for the same purpose. Ron Hull Jnr Ltd has a specialised team where operatives clean and recycle a variety of waste components. Anything that is uncertain will be put through to the next phase of the waste management hierarchy (Recycling) as our employees' safety, and indeed that of the general public, is of paramount importance to us.
This is where recovered waste materials are re-processed into usable products, materials or substances. Recycling is Ron Hull Jnr Ltd's speciality. With our continued heavy investment in the latest waste management technology, machinery, and sorting systems, combined with highly experienced Waste Management Consultants, we have the potential to recycle everything.
Recovery Of Waste
This is when a waste is serving a useful purpose such as energy. Ron Hull is wholly committed and heavily invested in the latest RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) technology to offer a "zero to landfill" waste management route - where ALL waste is disposed and diverted from costly, eco-unfriendly landfill! All useful or valuable recyclates will have been removed in the previous stage of the waste hierarchy.
Disposal Of Waste
With Ron Hull Jnr Ltd's passion and investment in achieving zero to landfill waste, we find that all our waste has always gone out of the hierarchy "loop" at the recovery stage.
