The amount of refuse-derived fuel (RDF) exported from the UK increased sharply from 0.9 million tonnes in 2012, to 1.6 million tonnes in 2013. This is almost 6 times the level reported for 2011 and so it is clear that there has been a major shift in the market.

Furthermore, the combination of :

• Significant incineration over-capacity in the Netherlands, Germany and Scandinavia, plus
• The shortage of incineration capacity in the UK, plus
• The increasing cost of UK landfill

Indicates that the upward trend in RDF exports will continue into the foreseeable future.

A critical link in the RDF export chain is the baling process and this is where the Paal equipment, offered by Dicom, is firmly established as the market leader. Having sold 25 RDF/SRF balers over the last 3 years, with realistic production capacities of between 25 – 90 tonnes per hour, it is clear that a high proportion of the 1.6m tonnes of RDF exports have been baled using Paal equipment.

So, if you are in the market for a specialist RDF baler, speak with Dicom about why so many UK customers have selected a Paal baler ahead of the competition.

Over the last 38 years, Kadant PAAL Limited has become the UK`s leading manufacturer and supplier of static and portable waste compactors. The waste compactors are designed and developed for durability, high performance and ease of operation. This is important to organisations wishing to reduce the frequency and cost of waste collections or where space and hygiene are important factors. This is achieved by significantly reducing the ratio of waste from its original volume. Dependent upon the type of material, a Dicom waste compactor can reduce the waste volume by a ratio of 4:1. This ensures that maximum payloads are achieved with each container. Kadant PAAL's portable waste compactors can be supplied with several standard options, such as: liquid retentive seals to prevent food waste leakage, bin lifting equipment for lug and comb type waste containers, choice of standard hopper – open splayed, enclosed, dock loading. The static compactors are also available with a range of hopper options and tipping mechanisms and are available in a range of sizes to suit all volumes. Our equipment can be seen working in almost any industry including manufacturing, retail, leisure, hospitals, restaurants, food production, HM Forces, transport, schools & colleges, warehousing and is often used by waste and recycling contractors to process materials such as cardboard, plastics, food and general waste. Our products meet a range of wide and varied requirements, including the latest health and safety standards, and we offer a range of payment options from outright purchase, rental or lease; so regardless of your waste handling needs, Kadant PAAL have the solution.
