Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0039255A1] The invention relates to a method for producing a fuel from waste, in particular the organic wet fraction (OWF) of waste, comprising of providing an organic wet fraction (OWF); at least partially drying the organic wet fraction (OWF); separating the organic wet fraction (OWF) to size into a first fraction with dimensions above a determined cut-off point and a second fraction with dimensions below a determined cut-off point; separating each of the fractions on the basis of at least diameter, and optionally density, into a first sub-fraction consisting substantially of organic material and a second sub-fraction consisting substantially of inert material; optionally mixing the two first sub-fractions; optionally bringing the optionally mixed sub-fractions into a manageable form in order to obtain a fuel. Suitable techniques for separating each of the fractions on the basis of at least diameter, and optionally density, are for instance air separation and ballistic separations such as the throw-off technique.
