What is RDF?
Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) is produced from combustible components of municipal solid waste (MSW). The waste is shredded, dried and baled and then burned to produce electricity, thereby making good use of waste that otherwise might have ended up in landfill.
Warrenpoint Port has a designated area which is approved by NIEA (NI Environment Agency).
Re-Gen Waste started trading in 2004 as an integrated recycling and waste management company and in that time has developed one of Europe’s most advanced MRF (materials recovery facility) installations. The Newry-based factory handles mixed waste processing with best in class technologies in place to ensure European standards of recycling are not only met, but regularly exceeded. This waste to energy facility is ideally located to serve the needs of customers and councils across the UK and Ireland, in order to help them meet their recycling needs and achieve waste to landfill targets.
Travelling across the globe to establish best in class practices and identify where even more efficiencies could be made, Re-Gen founders decided the only way to proceed was to build their own purpose-built factory, which is where the founding directors found that having a background in construction served them well. Bespoke machinery has allowed Re-Gen to carve new paths to market, making operational efficiencies and finding new ways to contribute to environmental responsibility.
Re-Gen Waste now operates their Newry-based factory 24 hours a day to process over 1.5 million tonnes of waste. Company operations include waste to energy (WTE), MDR processing, MSW processing and engineering.
Re-Gen has been a customer since 2014 and year on year grows.
