DD CEN/TS 15359:2006 Solid recovered fuels. Specifications and classes

DD CEN/TS 15359 is a technical specification that specifies a classification system for Solid Recovered Fuels (SRFs) and a template for the specification of their properties.

DD CEN/TS 15359 provides unambiguous and clear classification and specification principles for SRFs. It is a tool to enable efficient trading of SRFs, promoting their acceptability on the fuel market and increasing the public trust. It facilitates a good understanding between seller and buyer, facilitates purchase, transborder movements, use and supervision as well as a good communication with equipment manufacturers. It also facilitates authority permission procedures and eases the reporting on the use of fuels from renewable energy sources and on other environmental issues.

SRFs are produced from non hazardous waste. The input waste can be production specific waste, municipal solid waste, industrial waste, commercial waste, construction and demolition waste, sewage sludge etc. A well defined system for classification and specification is therefore of great importance to reach the above mentioned objectives and intentions.

This Technical Specification covers all types of SRFs and has a wide field of application. It supports the objectives and implementation of the EU waste hierarchy as defined in article 3.1 of the waste framework directive 75/442 modified by the directive 91/156.

DD CEN/TS 15359 describes the compliance rules which a SRF has to meet to be classified according to the classification system. It also describes how the supplier can establish a declaration of conformity to the different Technical Specifications for SRFs.
