Kermanshah MBWT Project

(Mechanical and Biological Waste Treatment)

To Producing RDF

(Refused Derived Fuels)


Characteristics of Waste Management Project in Kermanshah City, Iran 

16 ha premises, of which 6 ha paved areas for windrows and compost storage

6500 m² buildings

1000 B IRRials total investment by the updated rate (about 8 M€)

200 job opportunities

220,000 Mg/annual throughput (600-700 Mg/day):

  • 45% rotting loss
  • 25% compost (about 55,000 Mg)
  • 7% recyclables (about 15,000 Mg, such as paper, PET, metal, plastic, tiers, stone and etc.)
  • 20% RDF (Refused Derived Fuels, about 40,000 Mg, such as plastic bags, textile and etc.)
  • 3% residue



"Machineries" (Mechanical Treatment)



"Separating of Organic Material" (Biological Treatment)




"Separating of Recyclable Waste" (Mechanical Treatment)


"Pressing of Recyclable Waste"


"Separating of Waste with Calorific Value" (Mechanical Treatment)

This kind of waste can be used as RDF (Refused Derived Fuels) in Cement Industries (Gasoline), producing of a kind of MDF (a new technology) or waste Incineration Systems (very costly in high consumption and in compare of other technologies).


"Using RDF in Industry (Briquette RDF)" (This part has not been established in Kermanshah and needs investment)


"Producing of MDF from RDF" (new technology)
