AbstractDisposal of municipal solid waste (MSW) in landfills is still the most common MSW disposal practice worldwide. Although landfills are increasingly equipped with better liners and environmental protection systems, the threat of harm to the environment from landfills continues to be a problem in the long term, due to leachate and gas production. As an alternative to landfilling, a portion of the waste (mainly plastics, textile, cardboard and paper, wood and other organics) can be converted into Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) and used as a fuel source rather than fossil fuel. An RDF facility can be developed as part of an integrated waste management system in Aqaba. This paper summarizes a recent study of the Aqaba MSW waste stream, explains relevant specifications and standards for RDF and proposes possible uses of RDF as fuel in cement industry.
