Physical Properties of Densified Refuse Derived Fuel



The need for and a description of eight draft standards for describing physical properties of densified refuse derived fuels are described. These draft standards include: collecting and dividing a gross sample of densified refuse derived fuel (dRDF), air drying, measuring the density of individual particles and bulk density, measuring the particle size distribution and the durability of the particles, and measuring total residual moisture and water adsorption. These draft standards are being developed by ASTM Committee E-38 on Resource Recovery. The precision of the test methods is also reported.
