Substitute fuels, industrial waste and industrial refuse

Fossil fuels are finite. This is why with increasing frequency waste is being used as a source of energy – this makes economic and ecological sense, if the right fuel is used in the right facility. Mixed plastics are nowadays recovered with economical cost-efficiency and ecologically compatible methods, but are also suitable for producing industrial fuels for the cement and lime industries, steelworks and power plants.
