Alternative Fuel Business
Alternative fuel refers to new environmentally friendly fuels that can replace traditional thermal energy sources such as coal and coke. Common examples include Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF), Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF), Refuse Derived Paper and Plastics Densified Fuel (RPF), and Tire Derived Fuel (TDF), produced from waste tires.
 These alternative fuels not only enhance overall energy efficiency but also reduce the use of fossil fuels, contributing to the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions and mitigating global warming.
Low Cost
With a higher heat value per unit compared to coal, the cost is about 1/4 to 1/3 of coal. It contains fewer impurities and has an ash content of less than one-third that of coal, allowing for cost savings in ash disposal.
Environmentally Friendly
Due to advancements in boiler technology, the combustion of substitute fuels does not produce toxic gases like chlorine and dioxins. Allows us to reduce the use of coal and support waste incineration.
High Calorific Value
With a heat value ranging from 6,000 kcal to 8,000 kcal, comparable to fossil fuels, it can be used as a substitute for fossil fuels like coal and coke.
Stable Supply
Unlike alternative energy sources (such as wind and hydroelectric power) which can be climate-dependent, these substitute fuels are not affected by weather conditions, ensuring a stable and consistent supply throughout the year.
Stable Quality
Utilizing only selected plastics or tires as raw materials, it contains fewer impurities, ensuring stable quality.
Easy Storage and Transportation
In comparison to liquid petrochemical fuels, substitute fuels are in solid, granular form, offering convenience during transportation and storage.
Alternative Fuel Type
Tire derived Fuel
Waste tires can be processed through procedures such as shredding, screening, and pyrolysis to produce various types of recycled fuels, including waste rubber chips, rubber powder, carbon black, and pyrolysis oil.
 These TDF are used as a fuel source in various industries, including cement kilns, paper mills, and industrial boilers. It serves as renewable energy sources, not only exhibiting excellent performance comparable to fossil fuels but also addressing the environmental pollution issue caused by the massive annual disposal of waste tires.
TieUs import high quality of tire chips, tire pellets and tire powder on a long-term basis. If you are also seeking a long-term partnership, feel free to get in touch with us!
Other Fuels (RDF, SRF, RPF)
RDF, SRF, and RPF play a crucial role in diverting waste from landfill, by transforming general waste into fuel that can be utilized for industrial processes and energy recovery at waste-to-energy plants, generating heat and power.

Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF):
RDF is created from municipal solid waste (burnable garbage including raw garbage from various unspecified sources). After the materials are initially sorted, they typically undergo only one screening before being shredded, making RDF a relatively basic and coarse type of fuel.

Solid Recovery Fuel (SRF):
SRF is originate from the same source with RDF, municipal solid waste, but with higher level of refinement required. Because SRF is a finer, highly refined type of fuel, it’s usually been produced to meet the specifications required by the clients.

Refuse Derived Paper and Plastics Densified Fuel (RPF):
RPF is made from waste paper and plastics that are difficult to recycle as industrial waste. The plastic and paper combination makes RPF a high-calorie solid fuel as a sustainable substitute for fossil fuel.
These raw materials are also classified into different grades, with quality control achieved through tests such as heavy metal detection and ash content analysis. TieUs are dealing with high-quality RDF, SRF, and RPF on a long-term basis, feel free to get in touch with us for further details!
Biomass Fuels
Biomass fuels are divided into solid, gaseous, and liquid forms. Solid biofuels include wood pellets, palm kernel shells (PKS), empty fruit bunches (EFB), and more. Compared to conventional fossil fuels, biofuels have the advantage of being low in sulfur, chlorine, and ash content. The heat produced by their combustion is close to coal and semi-carbonized solid biofuels can even surpass it. Yet, they have significantly lower carbon emissions compared to fossil fuels.  Furthermore, biofuel ash residues left after combustion are easier to manage and can be recycled into organic fertilizers. They are considered one of the cleanest solid energy sources in the world today.
